Robert F. Kennedy’s daughter Kerry said on Friday that she is ‘deeply grateful to’ California Governor Gavin Newsom for rejecting her father’s killer’s request to be paroled.
Sirhan Sirhan murdered RFK in 1968 moments after he won the Californian Democratic Primary.
He admitted it in subsequent interviews, then in the 1990s started changing his story to say that he couldn’t remember what he’d done.
The California Parole Board this week recommended that he should be considered for parole, and one of RFK’s sons, Robert Kennedy Jr., supported the recommendation.
Governor Newsom overruled, saying he shouldn’t be allowed out and that he has never shown remorse.
In an interview with Good Morning America on Friday, Kerry Kennedy, another of RFK’s 11 children, said she and most of her siblings were grateful for the decision.
‘I am deeply grateful to the governor for that decision.
