White House intern Mimi Alford: JFK made his move in summer '62

A 69-year-old grandmother has published a 208-page sizzler in which she details her 18-month affair with John F. Kennedy while she was an intern in the White House.

The book, “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath,” by Mimi Alford is scheduled to hit area bookstores Wednesday.

According to the New York Post, who claims to have purchased a copy of the book in a Manhattan bookstore, Alford tells about losing her virginity to Kennedy and writes, in intimate detail, about her 18-month love affair with the president

According to the Post, Alford met Kennedy in the summer of 1962, four days after she began her Whitehouse internship, when the 19-year-old debutante was invited by an aide to take a dip in the pool where the president swam daily. Later in the day, Kennedy invited Alford for a private tour of the White House and took her to Mrs. Kennedy’s bedroom.

The affair ended in November 1963, when Alford returned to college and a few week before the president was assassinated.

The liaison first came to light in 2003 in the book “An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963,” by Robert Dallek, but Alford was not named. However, according to a UK Daily Mail article published on May 23, 2009, a newspaper tracked Alford down and she subsequently admitted the affair.

At least the National Inquirer admits they do it for the money. When NBC broadcast the Mimi Alford interview about her affair with JFK, they claimed it was so she could "unburden" herself. BS. They did it for the money. When they unburdened Alford, they burdened Caroline Kennedy and all US citizens by adding to the disrespect for the Office of the President.

What was the value of that interview? Who does it benefit?

They did a disservice to this country. I have no respect for NBC and Brian Williams!
