T. Boone Pickens made quite a bit of news at our annual Bartley Dinner when he offered $1 million to anyone who could disprove the charges in the 2004 Swift Boat Veterans ads. John Kerry himself came forward and said he could collect the $1 million on behalf of Paralyzed Veterans of America (Kerry didn’t elaborate on which fact he was able to dispute). Pickens responded that he’d glady pay $1 million if Kerry would provide his military record and the journal he maintained while in Vietnam, and then contest the accuracy of the ads. If Kerry could not do so, Pickens challenged the Massachusetts senator to donate $1 million to the Medal of Honor Foundation.
Pickens appeared on Hannity & Colmes last night to talk about the wager, challenging Kerry to show his hand.
