Ted Kennedy’s Widow, Sons Feud

Edward M. Kennedy's sons are reportedly blaming their stepmother, Vicki Kennedy, for mishandling the late senator's institute and risking his reputation, The Boston Globe reported on Sunday. According to a source authorized by them, Edward M. Kennedy Jr. and Patrick Kennedy feel left out and believe Vicki's methods are jeopardizing the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate. They reportedly disapprove of the people she's working with and are upset that the board hasn't provided them with details vital to the project. Lee Fentress, who chairs the Institute's board, disagrees, saying the Vicki was the late senator's "right hand" and he "trusted her judgment and instincts."
