Alex Polier issued a statement today and gave an interview to the Associated Press, in which she denied all rumors relating to John Kerry:
“For the last several days I have seen Internet and tabloid rumors relating to me and Senator John Kerry. Because these stories were false, I assumed the media would ignore them. It seems that efforts to peddle these lies continue, so I feel compelled to address them. I have never had a relationship with Senator Kerry, and the rumors in the press are completely false.
She also said that she never worked or interned for Kerry.
Polier’s parents also issued a statement:
“We have spoken to our daughter and the allegations that have been made regarding her are completely false and unsubstantiated. We love and support her 100 percent and these unfounded rumors are hurtful to our entire family. We appreciate the way Senator Kerry has handled the situation, and intend on voting for him for president of the United States.”
That’s quite a change from the weekend, when Mr. Polier termed Kerry a “sleazeball.”
Kerry’s campaign said today that he would make no further comment on Ms. Polier.
Which means, I guess, that a lot depends on whether ABC does or does not have a taped interview with her.
