Author alleges Nixon had gay affair
In the book Nixon's Darkest Secrets: The Inside Story of America's Most Troubled President, Don Fulsom claims that former President Richard Nixon had an affair with Charles "Bebe" Rebozo, a banker with apparent ties to the mob, the Huffington Post reported.
Nixon once said that gay people "cannot be in places of high trust."
A report on the book says that Nixon and Rebozo, a Cuban-American, had men's-only vacations together in Key Biscayne, Fla., where they swam, sunbathed and ate together, according to the New York Daily News. The book also claims that they were once spotted holding hands under the table during a dinner with power brokers.
The new book also alleges that Nixon beat his wife and that his aides called him "our drunk," according to the Huffington Post.
The 304-page book is scheduled to be sold Jan. 31.
