Ted Kennedy

From the same FBI files that brought us cryptic tales of "sex parties" at the Carlyle hotel, we have a new piece of beyond-the-grave, sex-related, and not-all-that-suprising Ted Kennedy news: while traveling in Chile as an Assistant District Attorney in 1961, not only did Kennedy visit a brothel, but he actually rented out the whole place to have to himself for a night.

According to the file excerpted above, Kennedy, like the skilled and hospitable diplomat he was, "allegedly invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to participate in the night's activities" in between all his secret meetings with "left-wingers" and Communists. Oh, to have lived in simpler times.
