Ted Kennedy Sought Prostitutes, Communists During 1961 Visit To Latin America, Watchdog Group Claims

March 1, 2011 by  

Ted Kennedy sought prostitutes, communists during 1961 visit to Latin America, watchdog group claimsThe late Ted Kennedy allegedly made arrangements to rent a brothel for a night while visiting Latin America in 1961, according to documents released by the nonpartisan public interest group Judicial Watch.

In June 2010, Judicial Watch filed a claim requesting full disclosure of a 1961 State Department memo after it had discovered that the FBI redacted most of the original information. The organization, which specializes in uncovering government corruption, pursued the rights granted by the Freedom of Information Act and relentlessly requested that the redactions be removed.

In the uncensored version of the report, Judicial Watch found that Kennedy — who was the Assistant District Attorney of Suffolk County Massachusetts in 1961 — allegedly made plans to rent an entire house of prostitutes in Santiago, Chile. Kennedy, who died in August of 2009, was a Massachusetts Senator for 47 years and brother of former President John F. Kennedy.

Furthermore, the documents claimed that during his 1961 trip, Ted Kennedy — whose brother was the President at the time of his visit — requested to meet with communists and other Latin Americans who had left-wing views.

"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 Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. "We will continue to investigate why the FBI improperly chose to keep this information secret."

    Gee, the number of people who think Kennedy didn’t walk on water is growing? Even if old Ted did seek out sidewalk stewies and try to rub shoulders with commies, it might make for an interesting read, but old Ted is gone.
    It would be better to make the case for der Obummer to be shown as a commie sympathizer (or worse). He’s already got a head start, and it’s no coincidence that being a community organizer has much in common with being a closet commie.
    When old Ted was in France, I’m told that one of his ‘dates’ included a session with a woman in a boat on the ocean. The word got back to Congress, and a southern senator said that old Ted seemed to have changed his position on ‘offshore drilling.’ I realize that times change, but I still can’t believe that sex on the high seas is one of the percs that elected types deserve.
    I fail to see how cavorting makes a better politician. Isn’t that like getting paid to get laid while you screw America at the same time?

    • Rennie

      It complicates his later treasonous letter to the KGB, which can’t be called just a “spur of the moment” olive branch after 20 years of being in bed with communists. If you judge people or policies by the company they keep, then what is happening to our country since 2008 can be no surprise.

    • Cliffystones

      “Isn’t that like getting paid to get laid while you screw America at the same time?”

      Hey SC! Looks like you just came up with a new definition for “group sex” :)

  • Doc Sarvis

    Wow 1961; everytime I bring up something about George Bush on this site I am chastised for bringing up ancient/irrelevant history. I guess even more ancient history is okay if it used against the other side AND uses possible information on alleged plans as opposed to actual events.

    As for meeting up with communist leaders; every President and many congressional leaders have met up with various communist leaders ever since World War II – it is called leadership.

    What an awfully slanted view this article provides.

    • Rennie

      You are forgetting Ted’s letter offering assistance to the Kremlin in 1981-1982 time period when the USSR was preparing to attack (and nearly did Nov. 8, 1983), this shows his association with the enemy was probably established over two decades previous. And any secrets he touched in that time probably didn’t stay secret from the USSR.
      And yes, Bush had many faults, flaws and errors, but handing over our nuclear deterrence, toppling our allies and turning those countries over to radical islam (there is a nice youtube video of an attack by Egyptian muslims with tanks on a coptic church on youtube), were not among them, and neither was tripling the national debt and insisting on spending more borrowed money this year. Bush allowing the Fed to print more money was stupid, Obama allowing the Fed to print even more and monetize our national debt is insane.

      • JoMama

        He (DocSarvis) doesn’t care about that. He ALWAYS thinks he’s right. And he always thinks he’s smarter that anyone. He just likes to argue.
        Maybe if we just ignore him – he’ll go away.

    • Wandamurline

      Ted Kennedy was always a bottom feeder in my book…he literally got away with murder when he was drunk out of his mind and ran his car off into the river and instead of helping the young lady with him, he left her to drown while he crawled like a snake back home to sober up before the authorities were called. His dad became rich as a maffia figure during prohibition. These people may be rich, but they certainty don’t deserve any recommendations as being nice people.

      • 45caliber

        I read a report by the sherrif of that county about a week after the death. The sherrif commented that he had witnesses that had seen them going through town about thirty minutes before the “accident”. Ted was in the back with the girl. Two other men were in front driving.

        Further, he stated that she had told several friends that she was pregnant by him. (He tried to have her body examined to determine that but her family was paid $50,000 to not have it done.) She told them that she had told him that if he didn’t divorce his wife and marry her, that she was going public and ruin his campaign. He told her to give him two weeks. She was all excited about being his new wife. That was about four or five days before she died in the accident.

        The sherrif was asked to resign for his statement to the press.

    • Jonathan Gartrner

      Sorry doc, the history of what a person does influence decisions later on, the problem is that it can go either way the person might have an aversion to bad decisions or go with them. The person in this case is one of the left wing gods. Not ted (he had his own problems including at least man-slaughter that was covered up) but his brother JFK. He started the war (WWII) in England (father at court of St. James) was caught passing information to the germans (a women of course) in the 1950′s was caught doing the same with a female agent of (I believe) the NKVD. In the end some people learn from their mistakes some dont most of it is opinion from someone not in a position to know the complete story unlike our subject JFK and his family (who many seem to have a very sorid history indeed)

    • Tex Expatriate

      Ah, yes, you make a fine point, but it is contradicted by the socialist agenda Kennedy pursued during his career.

  • http://deleted Claire

    The guy is dead. Why beat a dead horse? Besides, how many other politicians have done the same thing? A lot of politicians want their cake and eat it too.

    • Rennie

      No one cares about brothels because he was a democrat, they are forgiven that, but trying to deliver the USA into the hands of the USSR, and making the security of any classified information he touched while in the senate doubtful, is willfull and deliberate treason.

      • Robert Smith

        Take a wide stance Rennie and look at current events. A live gay conservative Republican in an airport restroom is a far more likley candidate for blackmale and treason.

        He is certainly more dangerous to America than some goings on 50 years ago.

The monster they created grew too big to control, and now the U.S. is bleeding white trying to stop it. Now the U.S. is seen by people around the world as the “Evil Empire”.You are an idiot.

            What a sellout! George W. Bush was dumber than dirt, everyone knows that; and so Dick Cheney was put in the ring with him to do all the thinking. Cheney was the CEO of Halliburton for 5-years and knew how to screw people, which he did a great job screwing the public as Vice President. The War in Iraq led to the tortured, imprisonment and death of millions of Iraqis, many of whom were women and children.

            From samurai: “Rember moron…”

            Looks like another right wing privlage to me, samurai. Remember: “Please don’t stoop to name calling.”

            But there it is. Contributing nothing to knowledge and trying to spin things the reich way.

            Rob

          • http://naver samurai

            First of all, you two have got to be the most ignorant people on this site. Coal Dungger, Rob was talking about Bush, so I answered his post. Where did Reagan come from? Reagan isn’t the subject, so go somewhere else and leave the patriots alone to correct the course this country has taken, moron. Robert always talks about the “reich way.” Remember that Nazism was a socialist type of government, ergo very left of center. I don’t go left like you two. I don’t believe in brown nosing Obama bin Laden like you do. You also sound more like one with your stances on socialist issues (Manditory health care, abortion, etc.) and how you always attack religion (Usually Christians). You sound more like Hitler and Marx every week on these posts. Coal Miner, arming groups to take on the Soviets, yes they were Soviets back then and not Russians, isn’t treason. If it is, then we helping the underground in Europe would also be considered treason. How about Bill “Pimp” Clinton and not so Albright when they sold computer technology to the Chinese and North Koreans? They did this, though it was illegal for them to do this according to our trade laws. This is treason also. Now, due to this technology, the Chinese and North Koreans have advanced their missile capabilities, now have the Jen 36 stealth fighter (China), and North Korea has nukes and missiles that can reach our west coast. Looks like the mosters that they have created have gotten to big to handle also, doesn’t it? Another thing, Bush may not have been our smartest president, but he always stuck to his convictions (A sign of a strong leader), but he’s a lot better than Obama bin Laden. Why don’t you ask the ones that seem to be leading him in what he does. You know, Bill Ayers, Soros, etc. He’s also a menber of the Bilderberg group with his partner Hillary. At least he can prove where he was born and where he went to school, unlike your “messiah” in the White House. Just like a lib to always mention Haliburton. Remember where they got their start by going overseas with our military? I surw wasn’t Iraq or Afghanistan, it was Clinton’s mess in Bosnia. A place we didn’t need to go. Clinton only went to support the muslims and gain some points in the Arabic community in America. You two nimrods are also wrong about the deaths in Iraq. It is true that there have been many deaths there, but most of them are committed by terrorists from Al Queda or other groups. We aren’t the ones wearing bombs on our bodies, nor are we the ones planting them in cars and setting them off at crowded places. You always talk about name calling, but you two do a lot more than I do. I suggest you take some of your own advise. You know what the patriots are saying on this site is true. You idiots just can’t resist a chance on putting a spin on things for your own benefit. These last two things I’ve mentioned is why I call you two morons. Lastly, most people think badly about the U.S. not because of Iraq and Afghanistan, remember many of our allies went with us to these places too, but it is about how Obama bin Laden has been handling things. Alienating us from our allies, turning his back on our country, and supporting radical groups in the Middle East. If you two don’t understand these things, then you are really a couple of Bozos. 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

            From samurai: “how you always attack religion”

            Another lie from samurai.

            I do not “always” attack religion. In fact I’ve expressed support for Bishop Spong, Baha’i, Robert Schuler, and many others.

            I’m quite specific about the self professed horrible, bullying, “christanity” supported by samurai and his wife. I think it’s hateful and generally not really christanity, but a sham from those who want to do violence to others.

            The brutal god who blew up cities, flooded the world, and took the first male child from parents just doesn’t get any respect from me.

      If we had National Health Insurance were everyone had health insurance THEN all those government retirees wouldn’t have to be on the rolls bankrupting cities and states. Some of that money could be applied to universal health care.

If you could compare the republican party to any other government they would stand head and shoulder with any communist country. communist government control everything the republican party favor corporations and gives tax breaks allows them (corp) to control everything even force the republicans to start wars like bush did.

  • Rennie

    His offer of assistance to the Kremlin and promisiing a sympathetic ear of Walter Conkrite and Barbara Walters to their side of any conflict with Reagan at a time the USSR was preparing to blitz Europe and soften the USA with a preliminary nuclear strike, says it all about the man. At least what happened at Chappaquidik was an accident. I think Reagan found out about that letter, and used it to keep Ted Kennedy on a short leash the rest of his years in the White House. Americans forget it was nuclear deterrence alone that kept the USSR from directly assaulting the USA, now we face a very different game thanks to START 2, where we have to hope Russia is more concerned with competition from China, and oil is the key, namely depriving China of as much as possible to limit their growth, from ANWAR to Libya. Pretty much, our armed forces are being used as mercenaries to keep our main creditor (China) supplied with oil, and Russia’s mercenaries (“radical” muslims or whoever) doing what they can to run interference. In otherwords the USA has been demoted from king to bishop on the chess board.

  • Doug

    Doc Sarvis, the point of peeling those rotten onions back a layer at a time is to show a pattern of depravity that extends through the entire Democratic apparatus. It demonstrates how far the Left will go to perpetrate, conceal, and condone bad behavior, and it reveals a sense of what you can expect from others of their ilk. You may say that it’s guilt by association, but when one studies a species, one must look for commonalities of behavior to better understand the creatures. What we’re talking about here is new revelations about a clan member whose clan has been able to keep a lot of dirt covered up, perhaps with payoffs and intimidation, but certainly with the complicity of the liberal press. If you can show new revelations about G.W. instead of constantly repeating the same old talking points, then go for it. Even though I have been a conservative my entire life, I have not tried to cover up anything bad that G.W. or any other Republican has been responsible for, and I have made my objections public at the time of his transgressions. The blind denial of the Left with regard to their own idols is simply irrational.

    Claire, yes, other politicians have done stupid things, but that doesn’t excuse any of them. Funny though how Republicans are often either drummed out of office or leave on their own accord for having transgressed, while Democrats stick in there like gum in your hair, or, as I suspect for those who can’t keep their pants on, scabies in their privates. Everybody’s doing it doesn’t work for breaking ethical and moral codes any more than it works to tell the Highway Patrol officer that he can’t give you a ticket because everybody else is speeding, too. Like the officer said, “Even a spider can only catch one fly at a time.” For the Kennedy clan, and a large number of liberal polliticians, it’s a different “fly.”

    • Rennie

      My grandfather was a lifelong democrat but not a communist, he was a fan of FDR until after he got out of the CCC a few years and realized he was no better off for it, and that things only looked better when FDR wa sup for election again. He liked Harry Truman and lamented not having a democrat like him since.

      • Bob

        There has never been a good scum(dem)ocrat. FDR set up the machinery (Socialist Security) that stole trillions from workers to feed government parasites. He also began the philosophy that government should provide for people rather than people providing for themselves. His stooge, Truman, stood by and let the USSR bring the Iron Curtain down on millions of people when a couple of well placed atom bombs could have ended the rule of the communists and could have served as a warning for communists everywhere. And then there were Johnson, JFK, Carter, Clinton, and all the rest of the scumocrats who have furthered the cause of Marxism by growing our government like a cancer. No, there has never been a good scumocrat.

      I agree. Expose them all, whether dead or alive. I’m sick of all the “hero worship” of the Kennedys. Most of them (especially Teddy) were nothing but garbage wrapped in skin. Money doesn’t buy class.

      • 45caliber

        Right.

    • karolyn

      I don’t think the Dems stay in any more than Repubs. Look at John Edwards and the ex gov. of NJ.

      • Bud

        John Edwards was not in office. He does not count. And the ex-governor of New Jersey should not have resigned.

        • libertytrain

          You’re right, former Senator Edwards was just running for Vice President and/or President (whichever was going to work for him) so that shouldn’t count. —- :)

    Liberals continue to rationalize and make excuses for their behavior and can depend upon the slanted major media to soften or completely cover up their transgressions. However, let a conservative do the same thing or something less depraved and watch how the major media attack. Funny, since Obama was elected, our young military people dying in his war do not get the attention they did when ’43 was in office. Now the deficit and the debt are not as ominous, I haven’t heard one report about the plight of the homeless. When Bush was in 4.8% unemployment was a disaster, now 10% is OK and the economy is “out of the woods.”

    • 45caliber

      10% unemplyment is okay because they know that the real number is about double that.

    What a silly article.Brothels and prostitution are legal in many countries of the world.When in Rome if you want to do as the Romans do and it is legal go for it.As far as meeting with some commies etc, it is good to know and keep your enemies close.If I ever get back to Amsterdam I may even smoke a joint etc.Life is what you make it and it can be great.Thank you

    • eddie47d

      Yes jopa it must have been a slow day for the Personnel Liberty desk to drag up old news. All history is relevant but for them to act like it’s a shocking headliner just means it’s being used as filler.

      • libertytrain

        You sure like to complain an awful lot for someone that spends every day here.

          What about Bill, Hillary, and Obama bin Laden? What about Billy Carter? Just a few more you lib morons can look for. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        eddie47d,

        You are right,it is old news.Its fifty years old.

        • libertytrain

          Kind of like a good history book that not everyone has had the chance to read and are enlightened upon reading it, “old news” to some is “new news” or perhaps “undiscovered news” to others. COAL MINER, Why else would you keep posting links and lengthy dissertations about “old news” – I’m guessing your aim is to inform and enlighten those that haven’t discovered the old news you’ve come across.

          • http://naver samurai

            This article is new news to me. 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Bud

      Most of us don’t sleep with our enemies for decades. You aren’t supposed to keep your enemies THAT close.

  • Billy Cooper

    HEY WHAT ELSE IS NEW? ALL THIS CAMELOT [offensive word removed], IT ALL RUNS IN THE KENNEDY FAMILY. IT ALL STARTED WITH PAPA “JOE”. IT WAS MONEY FOLKS. JUST BECAUSE YOU GOT MONEY, IT SURE AS HELL DOESN’T BUY CLASS.GEORGE SOROS HAS MORE MONEY THAN HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO WITH, BUT IS HE A CLASSY GUY? NOT IN MY BOOK. BUT JUST FOR THE RECORD. THE KENNEDY’S DID NOT WALK ON WATER. SOME OF THEM WERE WHORE CHASERS, RAPISTS, MURDER, BY SOME OF THE KINFOLKS. ALL THOUGHT THEY WERE “GODS GIFT TO WOMEN” PERSONALLY I AM GLAD THE “CAMELOT” DAYS ARE OVER WITH. AND I WILL GUARANTEE THE ONES IN THE WHITEHOUSE NOW, WOULD NOT EVEN MAKE GOOD SHARECROPPERS. MAYBE COTTON-PICKERS.

    • 45caliber

      The journalistic rule for biographies is that once someone dies you say nothing bad about them – for twenty five years. Then someone will come out with a tell-all book. That will go on for another 25 years. Then they will finally come out with a book that will show the real person, good and bad. That’s also the reason they always say to wait 50 years before declaring some person a hero.

  • Fran C

    Camelot days are over but Barack & Michelle are trying to revive it. Also, why did the taxpayers pay the expenses for all of Teddy’s funeral? Why are the taxpayers paying for a museum in Teddy’s honor. He was not a president, most president’s pay for their own with contributions.

    • 45caliber

      His family didn’t have enough money to honor him well enough?

      • Bud

        No, that’s why his family still has money. They get the taxpayers to pay all their own expenses.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        45caliber,
        Well gee, socialsecurity will pay 250 dollars for YOUR funeral!!! That’s all the people should have been stuck with for him!!!

  • S Rubicon

    Why did government officials seek to keep Teddy’s shenanigans, secret? Oh lets see now….. perhaps because he is one of the ‘protected’ class?
    Perhaps its because they fear retribution by the Kennedy clan? Perhaps its because many of them are just like Teddy?
    Lets face it folks, we already knew Teddy was a scoundrel. His moment of decisions came one night in Massachusetts, when he left the scene of an accident, & allowed a young woman to suffocate in the small air pocket of a car he drove into a canal. In the end, he sat in a motel or hotel room, made calls to crony buddies, & he found excuses for why he did what he did, when he did it, & why he did not try to save her or to make emergency services calls to try to save her.
    We all have heard about the Kennedy boys’ propensity to seek comfort w/ women i n bed, whom they are not married to especially. And in truth, there are millions of men in America who do the same thing. Heck in today’s environment, there are many women who do this!! (I know, I know, that does not make it right!)
    That government officials are trying to protect his legacy should show us that they will do anything to protect one of their own. Within the federal bureaucracy, liberals abound & they function to push any & every liberal issue or cause. In this case, they want Americans to believe Teddy was a) one of them and b) was a true & pure public servant! Perhaps we should just forgive & forget. However, you cannot forget what they try to hide. But in addition…. if they will hide this, what else are they hiding from us & is the what else, dangerous to our survival?
    I suspect the answer is, they are hiding much & its all dangerous to our survival!

    • 45caliber

      It is the same with all Democrats anyway. (I suspect that blackmail is a way of business in Washington.) And I would bet that most Republicans fall into the same field. I know that Clinton was not charges with several crimes because “it would cause other countries to lose their trust and liking for the US if this came out.”

  • 45caliber

    Not a surprise at all. This just is a verification of what I already knew about him. And I’m certain most libs will either deny it or will insist that he was “just a boy then and boys will be boys.”

  • Always Right

    so basically, he hung out with democrats: communist whores in suits…

  • Julian

    I think the real lesson of this article is how much of what our PUBLIC servants do at our expense that is kept secret again at our expense. Is it any wonder that so many of us think the worst when time and time again we find out later that it was even worse than we thought. I don’t believe anyone can stand up clean when held under a microscope but the Kennedy’s prove that powere corrupts and the more power the more corruption. Will Kopeckne ever be freed from the lies?

  • karolyn

    So what? What’s done is done. More exposed dirt helps no one. I’m sure you’ve heard the stories about Jack.

    Kennedy may be dead, but his friends (including Senator Lurch and Congressman Ed “Global Warming” Markey) have already connived to appropriate more than $68 million taxpater dollars for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for th United States Senate. Isn’t it enough that we have presidential libraries and museums, that we have to start honoring members of Congress with multi-million dollar shrines. The last thing we need is a monument to the “Hero of Chappaquidick,” and the biggest dirtbag in the United States Senate. One can only imagine what an ideological agenda this “institute” will have. Teddy Kennedy did more than any Senator in the past 50 years to undermine this country and pursue his socialist agenda. His vitriolic speech during the Robert Bork confirmation hearings was one of the most despicable in American history. In character and intellect, Kennedy wasn’t fit to be in the same room as Robert Bork.

  • chuckb

    all the vietnam vets should spit on ted kennedy. he and his liberal cohorts did everything possible to aid the enemy and make sure vietnam fell to the communist north. likewise, he did the same when doing his best to support the communist dictator ortega in nicaragua.
    unfortunately he didn’t support joan kopechne and left her to drown at chappaquidick, this was nothing less than cold blooded murder. the man (if you want to call him that)was nothing but a drunken scumbag.
    to spend one dime building a memorial for this clown is sickening.

  • http://com i41

    chuckb don’t forget Just a F–king Kennedyu was carring on with a mafia and a communist honey pot when he was a senator. Why do you think Onumnutts goes on trips to the middle east with out Big Mamee, looking for some young boys under 10, it isn’t considered queering a boy until he turns 10. It was proven Mary Jo lived over 4 hours to die a horrible death. Democraps only rise in statue in the party the scummy they are, 72 democrat presidental canidate a registered communist who stated he would crawl to Hanio, along with Fonda Peters sister Hanio Jane, Onumnutts having a love in with Cylpso Louie Fka koon, or Gdm America Onumnutts uncle for 20 some years, or Sheets Byrd and his white and black n–gars. Only democraps can use that type of definition. As for people using drugs it is their own damn problem and shows what weak pukes they really are, and are usally strong union dumbocraps.

    • who cares

      i41, your are an AssH*l*!! you should of stayed in school, you either playing or your plain stupid along with chuckb. i41 learn to spell. Did you two idiots even served in the military? and or go to Viet Nam?? probably not, you are a republican slime who sit at home and want others to die for you. You are about a BITCH.

      • http://naver samurai

        Did you go to Vietnam? Probably not, moron. What do you know about it? Maybe just what you learned in the left wing textbooks in today’s schools. If you want to know, just post the questions and I’ll ask my father and uncle who both did 3 tours of duty over there. I’ll bet you didn’t even serve time in the military. 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • who cares

    Have any of you conceder that someone is pulling your string?? You are nothing more damn fool puppet. If you have not notices the republican party play you like a YO-YO, don’t know if you coming or going. they have you believe voting against your best insterest is good for you I mean they have you believe paying someone else taxes, you some how you will benefit from. (The) party needs you to stay confused they need you for one thing and one thing only that is for you to vote them in back in office. YO YO’s you are not very bright. How many people would work for a company when the company makes (forces) the one worker give part of his pay to another worker? or makes the worker to use his own money to buy gas for the companies truck to do his work? Thats what the republican party want you to do pay for the wealthy and the corporation!! if thats is not communist I don’t know what is!! Think about it Yo YO’s
