The late Sen. Ted Kennedy arranged to “rent” a brothel for a night while on a visit to Chile and other Latin American countries decades ago, according to a 1961 State Department memo obtained and published by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Judicial Watch released several documents said to be from Kennedy’s FBI file. The group said it obtained a cleaner copy of the State Department memo after a mostly redacted version was made public earlier.
The Dec. 28, 1961, memo described a tour of several Latin American countries Kennedy made while he was an assistant prosecutor with Suffolk County, Mass.
Traveling with a professor, Kennedy “insisted on interviewing ‘the angry young men’ of the country,” according to the memo. This included “communists and others who had left-wing views.”
