John F. Kennedy the lecherous lover at odds with Camelot image — New book destroys the Camelot fantasy for me
*** begin quote ***
The latest memoir by a former lover makes me think twice about John F.Kennedy.
Mimi Alford’s account of her sexual dalliance with President Kennedy when she was a White House intern cannot be refuted by the late president but I have to say it rings true.
She was just 19-years-old when Kennedy, then 45, took her aside and to his wife’s bedroom where he ended her virginity.
There was worse to come. Perhaps the most damning part of the book is when Kennedy gets the very young woman to ‘service’ his White House aide Dave Powers while Kennedy looks on.
It is pretty disgusting stuff and while we all knew Kennedy was a roué, the direct evidence like this makes it a lot less appealing than the glamorous Marilyn Monroe alleged affair.

It seems like politicians have a tendency to be lying pigs.
JFK was supposedly the “first Roman Catholic President”. Acclaimed by all the Priests, Nuns, and Brothers in my schools, he was the single Greatest exemplar of Catholicism in my lifetime.
And, like most humans place on some pedestal or other by some one or some group, he’s found wanting.
It’s sad really, that leaders have so little character.
