Ted Kennedy Arranged to 'Rent' Brothel in Latin America, '61 Memo Says
Fox News ^ | 02/28/11

Posted on 02/28/2011 11:05:56 AM PST by MissesBush

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.

This was the least of Teddy's sins. I'd say killing a mistress by driving her into the drink then trying to cover it up was far worse. No surprise that Teddy wanted to meet with left wingers in Latin America. Interesting he got away with all this but a New York Congressman is forced to resign because he sent a shirtless picture to some woman.

With an arboretum for the select few.

He wasn't a senator yet at the time of the trip--he didn't turn 30 until the following February.

He was married and the father of two children at the time of this trip.

Beautiful Nancy Kwan played a prostitute in a movie. She never was a prostitute.

Well he DID have to spend the night somewhere. And sharing his whores with the local commies probably saved a few burned US flags.

He had to find a home for all that off-the-books cash he'd earned from his best-selling CD (which is STILL a Billboard #2).

Photobucket

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.

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.

No, and I never said he was. But...

Teddy Kennedy was a real crooked politician, a real whoremonger, a real adulterer, and (probably) a real murderer of a young woman who trusted him.

His brother Jack attended a few orgies with whores arranged for him by the Mafia in Havana in the 50’s.

Did Teddy pass the brothelizer test?

“No surprise that Teddy wanted to meet with left wingers in Latin America. Interesting he got away with all this but a New York Congressman is forced to resign because he sent a shirtless picture to some woman.”

Are you suggesting that the Congressman shouldn’t have been forced to resign?

By the way - unless I’m mistaken, he resigned, but he wasn’t forced, unless you mean he was “forced” by his own knowledge that it would get a lot uglier for him if he didn’t, as there were other craigslist people that would come forward as well.

I’m not saying that at all. But let’s face it, if he’s a Democrat he’d have had no problem remaining in office. Republicans resign either A) Out of shame or B) Knowing the media will BBQ them so they get out of dodge. A Dem would have neither concern is my only point.

"build a museum for him."

The thought that this bag of commie degenerate feces is buried in Arlington Cemetary gags me everytime I think of it.
