The late Sen. Ted Kennedy arranged to "rent" a brothel for a night while on a visit to Chile and other Latin American countries decades ago, according to a 1961 State Department memo obtained and published by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Judicial Watch released several documents said to be from Kennedy's FBI file. The group said it obtained a cleaner copy of the State Department memo after a mostly redacted version was made public earlier.
The Dec. 28, 1961, memo described a tour of several Latin American countries Kennedy made while he was an assistant prosecutor with Suffolk County, Mass.
Traveling with a professor, Kennedy "insisted on interviewing 'the angry young men' of the country," according to the memo. This included "communists and others who had left-wing views."
The memo said that during Kennedy's stop in Santiago, "he made arrangements to 'rent' a brothel for an entire night." The memo said Kennedy allegedly "invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to participate in the night's activities."
The memo suggested other officials had run-ins with Kennedy on the trip. It said that in Mexico, Ambassador Mann -- presumably longtime State Department diplomat Thomas Mann -- pushed back when Kennedy wanted to invite "certain left-wingers" to the embassy residence for interviews.
"Mann took the strong position that he would not invite such people and stated that if any such interviews were to be conducted, all arrangements should be made by Kennedy himself," the memo said.
A State Department official in Lima said Kennedy "made similar requests" in Peru.

No doubt that Teddy was an expert in international “relations”
Working all countries with Senatorial DNC privilege?
Ted Kennedy was the Charlie Sheen of the US senate...
Come on! Lighten up on the Tedster! At least he didn’t try to buy the brothel.
It will be the finest Museum Brothel.
Only the best.
With an arboretum for the select few.
“Errr..aaaghh...where are my pants?”
Yep, the Lion of the Left - Fat Uncle Teddy was the perfect figurehead for the democrat party.
Ted Thread #4........
“Well my views are on the left, got a bimbo to the right...”
He was married and the father of two children at the time of this trip.
Well he DID have to spend the night somewhere. And sharing his whores with the local commies probably saved a few burned US flags.
Someone really ought to erect a statue on the Mall to Mary Jo for keeping this reprobate out of the White House. She really DID give her life for her country.
Careful, Charlie sues at the drop of a hat. At the very least, you can expect a nasty letter from his lawyer for the reference.
“She never was a prostitute”
Cagney wasn’t public enemy number 1.
Its SO much worse than this document illustrates. The real stories here are an electorate which continued sending him to DC and media who refused to report any of this even tho they knew. In fact in his later years Ted didn’t even bother to hide his antics, coming to press conferences drunk etc. Basically he was an untouchable quantity no matter how badly or criminally he acted.
