So where did the "fact" of Linda being chosen to go along and participate in the
Tate-LaBianca murders came from ?
Did Sandra Good tell that to District Attorney Vince Bugliosi ?
Did Linda herself tell this to Bugliosi ?
Nope. Vince Bugliosi told Vince Bugliosi.
Bugliosi himself "concluded" Linda Kasabian was picked because she was the only
one not in jail with a valid drivers license.
From the book, Helter Skelter, Vince Bugliosi writes:
That Friday evening, about an hour after dinner, seven or eight family members of the
family were standing on the boardwalk in front of the saloon when Manson came out
and, calling Tex, Sadie, Katie, and Linda aside, told each to get a change of clothing
and a knife.
He also told Linda to get her drivers license, excepting Mary Brunner, who had been
arrested earlier that afternoon.
This was, I concluded, probably one of the reasons why Manson had picked Linda to
accompany the others, each of whom, unlike her, had been with him a year or more.
The only problem with that is, it isn't true. At least not the valid drivers license part.
Kasabian was ticketed then fined in May of 1969 for not having a valid drivers license
in New Hampshire.

"Well, so what Brian, maybe Linda got her legal license when she got to California."
Yes, ok, except Kasabian reportedly was sent by Manson to deliver a message to Bobby
Beausoleil and Mary Brunner in jail just a day or two after the murders but couldn't get in
to see Brunner because....wait for it...wait for it...she didn't have a valid legal ID, which was
her drivers license.
Now, did Linda just tell everyone at the ranch or let those assume her drivers license was
valid when she arrived at the ranch ?
Did Linda tell Bugliosi that her license was valid ?
I don't know those answers but I do know is Linda Kasabian definitely did not have a valid
drivers license at the time of the TLB murders.
Bugliosi is wrong, yet again.
