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.

Ted Kennedy FBI file

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.

As long as he didn't use official funds, what's the harm? Some folks don't like to wait for their turn.

He could have set the place on fire as he left killing everyone inside and still have gotten re-elected in Mass.

If he was more conservative, he would have rented a brothel full of underage boys.

Or pull a Michael Steele and use RNC funds for bondage-themed nightclubs.

Strange how this file was never made public while Teddy was around to confirm or deny events. But at least he let his driver in on the fun. If Teddy had been a Republican he would've let the guy suffer through blueballs out in the car.

Yeah, Rex, this is really all about Republicans. The hate on the part of the left is amazing.

Pure class, that Ted Kennedy. I wonder if he tried to drive any of the prostitutes home?

Good one.
