Ted Kennedy and his ladies… in the Chilean Brothel

This comes from Judicial Watch. Ted Kennedy had some hot nights in Santiago! Oh yeah, and he partied down with commies… think he was comparing notes on vodka?

Judicial Watch Obtains Previously Redacted Material from the FBI File of the Late Senator Ted Kennedy

Washington, DC — February 25, 2011

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained previously redacted material from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) file of the late Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy, who died in August 2009 from brain cancer. Judicial Watch obtained the records pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit originally filed on June 9, 2010 (Judicial Watch v. FBI (Case No. 10-963)).

The documents include a December 28, 1961, State Department memo describing a tour of several Latin American countries taken by then-Assistant District Attorney of Suffolk County Kennedy. This document as it was originally made public was almost completely redacted. After an initial challenge by Judicial Watch, a version with fewer redactions was released. Judicial Watch continued to argue that the blackouts were baseless and, after six more months, the FBI relented. Among the statements previously withheld but now made available to Judicial Watch:

  • “While Kennedy was in Santiago he made arrangements to ‘rent’ a brothel for an entire night. Kennedy allegedly invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to participate in the night’s activities.”
  • “[I]n each country Kennedy insisted on interviewing ‘the angry young men’ of the country. He wanted to meet with communists and others who had left-wing views. …Ambassador Freeman, Bogota, said the first person whom Kennedy wanted to meet was Lauchlin Currie.” (The document subsequently identifies Currie as a person who “had been mentioned in Washington investigations of Soviet spy rings.”)
  • “[I]n Mexico Kennedy asked Ambassador Mann that certain left-wingers be invited to the Embassy residence where interviews could be held. Mann took the strong position that he would not invite such people and stated that if any such interviews were to be conducted, all arrangements should be made by Kennedy himself.”

(Judicial Watch, through separate litigation (Judicial Watch v. FBI (Case No. 10-1568)), also recently forced the FBI to begin the release of the FBI file of the late Ted Stevens, the long-time Republican Senator from Alaska.)

“The FBI’s reluctance to follow the law and release this material shows that it, too, is not above politics. Our tough fight with the Obama administration shows that it was not keen on letting the American people know that Ted Kennedy, one of Obama’s leftist politician heroes, liked to hang out with communists and prostitutes,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We will continue to investigate why the FBI improperly chose to keep this information secret.”

  1. Questioning, my brother, the dude is dead. He may have been an alcoholic “Commie” with a penchant for Chilean hookers, but he’s gone. Can’t we let it go? 🙂

    • Nope… can’t let it go. He was absolutely guilty of renting out a brothel and partying with Commies. It may be common practice for Dems to let certain things go, like they did with Senator Byrd. But they like to ride the Republican’s after death… turnabout is fair play. Besides, this is just fair journalism by Judicial Watch revealing a cover up….

      If you don’t like this one, you will really hate what I have on Ted Kennedy tomorrow. A combo of truth and satire coming out at 7am. LOL 🙂

  2. To be fair and in the interest of full disclosure… As I’ve already shared, I grew up in a die-hard Democratic home. My mom’s all-time favorite was Teddy Kennedy and I’m pretty sure she had a crush on him. LOL Ok, maybe not, but she did think he was great looking.I have a photo of him along with an autograph of his floating around my house somewhere. It was taken outside of my uncle’s lobster pound in South Bristol, Maine a LONG time ago.
