Richard Nixon Gay Rumors
December 28, 2011 by staff
Nixon’s Darkest Secrets: The Inside Story of America’s Most Troubled President by Don Fulsom (Thomas Dunne Books, $25.99), former correspondent for United Press International, makes several eye-catching accusations, including that the former president had a gay affair with Charles “Bebe” Rebozo, a banker apparently with ties to the mob.
The allegation is especially noteworthy because, as gay news website Queerty reports, Nixon was known to have made homophobic remarks.
From Queerty: When a close aide to President Johnson was caught having sex with a former sailor in a YMCA bathroom, Nixon called the man “ill,” and added that such people “cannot be in places of high trust.”
The new book also alleges that Nixon beat his wife and that his aides referred to him as “our drunk.”
The Daily Mail reports that Nixon’s alleged secret lover also had a shady history of his own.
According to the Mail, the FBI claims Rebozo had ties to mob bosses Santo Trafficante and Alfred ‘Big Al’ Polizzi. He also ran a bank that, a former mobster claims, was used to launder money.
