Secret notes claimed to have been penned by US President John F. Kennedy about his love affairs, sexual preferences and fears his adultery was exposed are claimed to have been revealed. A package of 98 pages, said to have been written by Kennedy on legal pads throughout 1960 while he was running his presidential campaign, are up for an auction set to take place in April in Dallas, Texas, the city that witnessed his assassination.
In one of the notes, the former president wrote about an admiration of blonde women that he felt he could not control. He also wrote about fears of his adultery becoming public, ahead of the election.
In another note, in response to a question about his plans for a potential post-election holiday, he is claimed to have written: "If I win maybe Florida or Puerto Rico. If I lose around the world in 180 days. I suppose that if I win my poon (an old naval term for sex) days are over".
"I suppose they are going to hit me with something before we are finished," Kennedy wrote.
Curtis Linder, a Heritage employee, cited by the Mirror, asserted that “some of the language and content of these notes would certainly have shocked many members of the electorate of that day”.
