JFK's teen mistress, a WH intern, breaks silence...
http://www.nypost.com/ ^

Posted on 02/05/2012 8:52:30 AM PST by jakerobins

She always called him “Mr. President” — not Jack. He refused to kiss her on the lips when they made love. But Mimi Alford, a White House intern from New Jersey, was smitten nonetheless.

She was in the midst of an 18-month affair with the most powerful man in the world, sharing not only John F. Kennedy’s bed but also some of his darkest and most intimate moments.

In her explosive new tell-all, “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath,” Alford, now a 69-year-old grandmother and retired New York City church administrator, sets the record straight in searingly candid detail. The book, out Wednesday was bought by The Post at a Manhattan bookstore.

WOW... Boy am I glad we don't have an adoring media that worships the President and treats him like a King! OH WAIT...Nevermind. LOL

Were I a female who had an experience like this, I believe that I’d just keep it to myself and spare my family the embarrassment. And, a grandmother, no less!

You see, when Dems cheat on their spouse, their heroic figures to the MSM (Kennedy, Clinton etc.) When Republicans do it, it’s a character issue (Cain, Gingrich etc.)

It’s been mentioned in several books about JFK and his family. Not sure if her exact name was given, but there is more than enough detail to figure out who she was if anyone cared.

If if you have read any of the objective, factual books about the ‘clan’, this is the least surprising story ever printed. Joe Senior, Joe Junior, and JFK passed women around like they were baseball cards. Bobby eventually grew up enough to join the fun. Teddy was too young at the time, although he would follow the family lead later in life.

Why they are treated as though they somehow ‘championed’ women’s causes is one of our greatest fictions. You have to wait till the “bent one” arrives to find a politician with a more callous disregard for women.

Saint John was the idol of Slick Willy who faithfully followed his example.

In this 1963 photo, 16 year old Bill Clinton is seen shaking the hand of president John F. Kennedy.
Clinton was chosen as a delegate representing the Arkansas American Legion Boys Nation.

Re: your observation that politicians are the scum of the earth.

Yes...they are, aren’t they? Huge egos, who demand the love of the public...and then rip us off often for hundreds of millions of dollars once out of office.

The ONLY honest guy out there is Ron Paul...but some of his ideas are so crazy he’s impossible to support. Because he’s honest, of course, he has no chance.

Here we are are fifty-two years after the “amazing” West Virginia primary when JFK defeated the protestant Hubert Humphrey...in a ninety percent protestant state...what amazing people...they actually voted for a Catholic.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars were placed in brown paper bags...and handed out to every election officer in every W. Va county.

What a bunch of lies it all is.

She gave that one guy a bj, so that’s probably why Kennedy never kissed her on the mouth.

Meh, it’s beleivable but he’s not here to defend himself. My grandmother moved in some of the same circles as the Kennedy’s. My mother knew JFK and Bobbie slightly and didn’t like either of them very much. Said they were rude, crude, egotistical thugs. She was in the same hotel on two occasions when despite the Kennedy money and fame they were forcibly removed due to boorish and destructive behavior. This was, of course, when they were late teens and 20 something spoiled rich kids.

To this day I still maintain any time a Kennedy dies the country becomes a better place.

Oh, I hope they bring it on; despite, most likely as per Clinton - it would/will just up Obama's 'appeal' - it's the 'Constituency'; that makes the difference. (And of course; the media is part of his Constituency so that is a 'twofer'.)

Just want the truth out; all of it; re Obama. Not holding breath, of course.

Of course, she hasn't been to that church in years, for some reason it was struck by a bolt of lightning and burned down in an inferno.

This woman’s story may or may not be true, I dunno. However it seems to me that between this woman, Judith Exner, Marilyn Monroe, etc., etc., etc., when did JFK ever have time to do any work?

I guess it is too much to ask of American women now days to show a little shame, self-respect, virtue, and dignity. What a state we have come to. And what a profligate example this woman has now set for her grandchildren. May God help us. We truly have become the land of the Kardashians and Jersey Shore.

I went to the link and read the excerpt about their first encounter. He basically saw her, had his friend bring her around like a groupie picked out by the band for a backstage pass, and took her to a bedroom and just started right in on her. Didn’t even go for any kind of slow seduction or flirtation, just “That one, yes. She’ll do.” and started unbuttoning her shirt. It sounds like she was a virgin, too. Yuck. Some men really are just dogs. My opinion of JFK was never super-high, but it just plummetted to rock bottom. What a creep.

They don't involve teenaged girls...

Would we ever know about it if they were?

Perhaps teenage boys are more in line with Barrys tastes.

Or middle-aged crack smokers.

Or basketball players.

Or choir boys.

Unless her Mom was in England in 1943/44, don’t think he could be her Dad. Senior had already ordained that Junior would be President. Joe Jr was in England trying to assemble a war record that would make him look heroic without taking any actual risks.

One of their last times together was at a Boston Democratic fund-raiser. Ted Kennedy, the president’s baby brother, was in the room with them.
“I could see that mischievous look come into his eye. ‘Mimi, why don’t you take care of my baby brother? He could stand a little relaxation.’
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” she replied firmly. “Absolutely not, Mr. President.”

Yes, the main purpose of the Congressional intern program is to provide fresh meat. Aged meat is provided by regular Congressional staffing (see Callista Gingrich).

But why would you allow yourself to have an experience like this? She should have slapped him and called police.

She was basically raped.

This is no different than how Musolini raped women by using his power and the knowledge that his political machine would protect him. But this lady wasn’t in Italy; she was where we have law.
