Happy Birthday To Him – A Birdie Blind Item
I guess this one, or at least the second part, was deemed too explosive by the publisher to make it into a certain book (which included the former part):
Which late, senior-most pol not only had a longstanding underworld lover, but once reenacted the birthday greeting of one of his predecessors with a scantily clad barely legal boy in that most famous of offices?
Somewhere, there is a recording of it – just no video.
Charles Gregory Bebe Rebozo
Charles Gregory “Bebe” Rebozo was a Florida banker and businessman who became infamous for being a friend and confidant of President Richard Nixon.
Did Nixon have a gay affair with a Mafia fixer? Forget Watergate. A new book claims America’s most corrupt President hid a far more personal scandal…
He carpet-bombed Cambodia, spewed out anti-Semitic slurs and crude misogynistic jokes in the White House and smeared his political opponents with ruthless ‘dirty tricks’ campaigns.
And, of course, he lied to his country about his involvement in the Watergate scandal and went down in history as America’s shiftiest, darkest President.
Given everything that Richard Nixon has been accused of, it’s difficult to believe there could be any more skeletons left in his cupboard. But it seems there are.
A new biography by Don Fulsom, a veteran Washington reporter who covered the Nixon years, suggests the 37th U.S. President had a serious drink problem, beat his wife and — by the time he was inaugurated in 1969 — had links going back two decades to the Mafia, including with New Orleans godfather Carlos Marcello, then America’s most powerful mobster.
Yet the most extraordinary claim is that the homophobic Nixon may have been gay himself. If true, it would provide a fascinating insight into the motivation and behaviour of a notoriously secretive politician.
Fulsom argues that Nixon may have had an affair with his best friend and confidant, a Mafia‑connected Florida wheeler-dealer named Charles ‘Bebe’ Rebozo who was even more crooked than Nixon. – Source
