DEAD MAN TALKING: A Kennedy Cousin Comes Clean
www.marthamoxley.com, 22 July 2013 [cached]
By Michael Skakel
...
Aware that I had been clean and sober for some time, and that I'd just gotten David on the path of sobriety, Bobby entered treatment saying, "if Skakel can get clean and still enjoy himself, what the hell, maybe there's hope for me."
...
I hope to become better acquainted with Michael, whom I knew to be fun-loving, energe3tic, witty and a great skier.
He arrived with his children, without his wife, and with a teenage babysitter, Marisa Verochi. As the weekend unfolded, two things became apparent - first, Michael was not in control of his drinking, and second, there was something not right about his interactions with the babysitter. At one point, both of them having a good deal to drink. Michael asked her for a backrub and lay on the sofa while she straddled him and rubbed lotion on him. My wife and I retreated to the bedroom, feeling awkward and somewhat alarmed.
Michael asked me to come and work on Senator Kennedy's campaign.
...
Over the next several weeks, Michael was persistent, calling me to nudge and cajole me to come to Massachusetts and help with the campaign. Finally, after a phone call I remember as especially convincing since I'd just been on another raft of interviews without success, I said yes. My wife was losing faith in me. I was going nowhere fast. Michael made it sound like a great adventure. Michael made most things sound like a great adventure.
The truth, as I would find out later, was that Michael desperately needed someone to replace a Kennedy lieutenant, Jimmy Recidlow, who had been accused of rape by a young college volunteer whose father was a wealthy campaign contributor.
...
The Kennedys found a quiet spot to hide Recidlow (whose sister, by the way, was sleeping with Michael) at that National Association of Government Employees.
...
Not long after the campaign, I was hired on at Citizens' Energy Corporation, where I worked my way up to Director of International Programs traveling with Michael to Portugal, Cuba, Angola, Venezuela, Brazil, and elsewhere.
...
I arranged for Michael to enter treatment for his alcoholism, and drove him there on the weekend of Rose Kennedy's funeral.
...
The following year, in the midst of growing scandal, I convinced Michael to seek help for his sex addiction, and took him to treatment. Upon his return, he began stalking Marisa Verochi, frightening her and her family. She came to me for help.
...
Michael and I fought, bitterly. He claimed that I'd threatened him physically.
...
I had been taken in . All the idealistic talk was conceived as a useful mythology to hide reality, not only about Michael, but about his brother Joe, and even my aunt Ethel, who had been like a mother to me.
...
You get your ass back here, Skakel!
...
So cut the crap about 'This is your fault, Skakel,' and listen to me.
...
You just dodged another bullet, Michael.
...
An article by jack Sullivan purported to have the inside scoop on Michael Skakel, a suspect in an old, unsolved murder and a chauffeur for the Kennedy family, who was trying to extort a quarter million dollars from them by fabricating a story about Michael and the family babysitter. Clearly the family was taking no chances on me.
I should probably have seen it coming. Earlier, when the truth could no longer be hidden, Michael had instructed me to tell the press that Marisa was promiscuous little slut who had come on to him, been rebuffed, and was angry.
...
A half hour later the phone in my office was dead, and all my Citizens' Energy credit cards had been canceled; a half hour after that and The Boston Herald was getting the story that would run the next morning: Michael Skakel, a chauffeur for the Kennedys was trying to extort money from them by making up lies about Michael Kennedy and an under-age girl.
...
Michael Skakel is a graduate of Curry College, a former member of the U.S. World Cup Speed Skiing Team, and the former Director of International Programs for Citizens' Energy Corporation.

www.marthamoxley.com, 8 Feb 1999 [cached]
"The boys there had a fixation that Tommy committed the murder, so they started beating the pulp out of Michael in the boxing ring to get him to confess that his brother committed the murder," Works said.
...
"This went on for weeks, and they finally decided that if Michael kept standing up for his brother, then he must've done it. Because this was under duress - what was essentially torture over time - whatever they thought was a confession they wrung out of Michael is absolutely meaningless. But yeah, they thought they heard a confession."
Works said he has come forward as an unofficial spokesman for the Skakel family. Both Thomas and Michael Skakel, who were Moxley's neighbors and with her the night she was killed, are suspects in the case. They have maintained their innocence. "I am doing this voluntarily," Works said. "I've not been authorized by the family to be their spokesman, but I'm their advocate with their assent because I know the (Skakel) boys to be innocent, and I know an increasing amount of details."
...
Believing Michael Skakel to be the probable killer, Fuhrman dismissed Works as a "media spin doctor."
...
In court affidavits, prosecutors said they have been informed that Michael Skakel "made admissions" about the murder in response to confrontations by Joseph Ricci, owner of Elan School, the Poland Spring, Maine, rehab center Michael entered in 1978.
...
In court affidavits, prosecutors said they have been informed that Michael Skakel "made admissions" about the murder in response to confrontations by Joseph Ricci, owner of Elan School, the Poland Spring, Maine, rehab center Michael entered in 1978.
...
Ricci on Thursday said it was "not impossible" that Michael Skakel's alleged admissions concerning the Moxley murder came about as Works said.
...
The former rehab resident, who requested anonymity, said, "Michael was never put into the ring for anything that had to do with this murder. Michael was never forced through any means to make a false confession."
...
The affidavits say Michael revised his story to say he wasn't in bed at a certain time but had climbed a tree outside Moxley's bedroom window and threw rocks at it to get the girl's attention, then masturbated in the tree before returning home through what was later determined to be the crime scene.
...
And as for Michael Skakel, Works said, "Again, you're talking about a kid. If you were 15 years old, are you going to confess to climbing a tree and (masturbating)?"
Works, 49, said he is speaking on the Skakel brothers' behalf because he believes misguided prosecutors are allowing Moxley's actual killer to go free. "I am convinced that the killer is alive and out there, and is laughing at the whole thing," Works said last week. "I know both these guys, and neither Tommy or Michael have the type of personality for that type of brutality."
