Nothing to see here, move along!

That's what Alex and her family say now according to Deborah Orin in the NY Post - I'm not John's Jane:
The young woman at the center of rumors linking her to John Kerry broke her silence yesterday to deny she had an affair with the married Democratic front-runner.

"I have never had a relationship with Sen. Kerry and the rumors in the press are completely false," Alexandra Polier, 27, said in a statement issued to The Associated Press in Nairobi, Kenya, where she is staying.
Her parents issued a separate statement that said the rumors are "unfounded" and added, "We appreciate the way Sen. Kerry has handled the situation and intend on voting for him for president of the United States."

But that's in sharp contrast to her father's attack on Kerry as a "sleazeball" just four days earlier, on Thursday, as quoted in Friday's edition of the British paper, The Sun. Those remarks certainly didn't indicate he intended to vote for Kerry.

"I think he's a sleazeball. I did kind of wonder if my daughter didn't get that kind of feeling herself," father Terry Polier, 56, was quoted as saying.

"He's not the sort of guy I would choose to be with my daughter . . . John Kerry called my daughter and invited her down to Washington two or three years ago.

"He invited her to be on his re-election committee. She talked to him and decided against it."

The father also was quoted as saying Alexandra's mother, Donna, thought Kerry was pursuing their daughter and was "after her."

The parents' statement yesterday didn't challenge The Sun's account.
No word on whether Vernon Jordan has lined up a job at Revlon for her. But just about anything is better than an Arkansas dirtnap.

But heck, I'm sure the media would tell us all about it if there was something to it. Or maybe not. Of course they could always have Scott Lindlaw "report" it.
