Once Upon a Time, A Story of Fairy Tale President

The story of a 19-year old young lady who "was mysteriously offered [a White House] internship out of the blue — she never applied — a year after she briefly met the president while visiting the White House for a story for her prep-school newspaper. He seduced her over daiquiris her fourth day on the job." Read the Washington Post, JFK mistress Mimi Alford: Secret trips, Ted Kennedy, Cuban Missile Crisis — and why she did it.

Also read The New York Times, Sure, Mr. President, if You Really Want Me To, which notes that the book includes "a couple of truly vile episodes in which the president humiliated Mimi by telling her to service other men sexually."

Hardly the 'Camelot' image perpetuated by the Kennedy family.
