Jfk Had Sex With Call Girls In White House, Says Tell-All

Associated Press
 

John F. Kennedy had sex with call girls in the White House, and an aide bought their silence by threatening to have them thrown into an insane asylum, says a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh.

The book, “The Dark Side of Camelot,” also says Kennedy suspected his wife, Jackie, of having an affair with Aristotle Onassis to get back at him for his own infidelities.

Details of the book were disclosed in the November issue of Vanity Fair. The book, published by Little Brown and Co., is due out next month.

It claims a top White House aide frequently procured prostitutes for the president, who had sex with them in the White House and on out-of-town trips.

“If you ever talk about this, you’re going to be in St. Francis’ for 30 years,” the aide would allegedly tell the women.

Hersh had to revise the book to delete a chapter about the president and Marilyn Monroe when it was discovered by ABC last month that documents Hersh was using were forged. The documents said that Kennedy was paying Monroe to keep silent about their alleged affair.
