New Memoir Details JFK’s Affair With Teenage Intern

NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) – A steamy memoir detailing Mimi Alford’s 18-month affair with President John F. Kennedy hits store shelves on Wednesday. In the book, titled “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair With President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath,” Alford claims she was a virgin when she started the affair as a 19-year-old White House intern. She last saw the president the week before he was assassinated in Dallas on November 22, 1963. According to excerpts published in the New York Post, the now 68-year-old grandmother described how the 45-year-old president, whom she met in the White House swimming pool, took her virginity in Jackie Kennedy’s bedroom.

    Good LAWD, leave the poor dead man alone! The public did NOT need to know this. Poor woman must need money for her retirement. What a perverted way to get it.

    SO WHAT! The Kennedy men are dead now and have been that way for some time!! Let them rest in peace. Show what’s still surviving of the Kennedys some respect and leathem alone! We already know thier fathers and grandfathers were adultrist multiple times. Why drag up another woman every year?

    I’m suprised some crafty lawyer has not enticed her to sue the family for pain and suffereing caused by his death and wanting part of JFK’s estate. Though there is probably that statute of limitations stopping her.

    And…did I really have to know this? Yes, diminished respect for President Kennedy and a sadness that his lack of “morals” affected so many. he certainly was a carpentalized person, keeping everything in its place. My deepest regret goes to Caroline….Mimi could have told a confessor or a psychiatrist…not the world. She has caused such pain in the older society. Not necessary but for the sake of a dollar…do not they all do this? If it was not for money, let her donate every cent she has made on this scandal to a worthy cause!! Dissapointed that Brian and Merideth would spend so much time on this…(and I do have the utmost respect for both).
