On the one hand, I have great misgivings about former JFK White House intern Mimi Alford, writing a book for (massive) profit a half century after the fact and including highly explicit details that no one can now corroborate, seeing that JFK, Dave Powers, and Ted Kennedy, among others, are deceased. However, that said, on the OTHER hand, Alford’s tale adds further fuel to the fire for those (like myself) who believe several agents, disgusted with President Kennedy’s private life, chose action via INaction on 11/22/63. Former agents Larry Newman, Tony Sherman, Tim McIntyre, and Joe Paolella, as well as Robert Bouck (again, to myself) waxed on about both their knowledge and anger over JFK’s sordid extra-marital affairs to best-selling author Seymour Hersh for his 1997 book “The Dark Side of Camelot”, as well as to Peter Jennings for the December 1997 ABC television special (and video) “Dangerous World: The Kennedy Years” (I have excerpts from this special in several videos).
Nonetheless, we have long known—for decades—that JFK was a womanizer: Judith Campbell Exner, (allegedly) Marilyn Monroe, secretaries “Fiddle” and “Faddle”, etc.
Robert Dallek “smoked out” Alford in his excellent 2003 book “JFK: An Unfinished Life”. In addition, the website THE SMOKING GUN offers further corroboration via a long-suppressed JFK Library oral history:
