     Mimi Alford, JFK Intern and Mistress

    Mimi Alford, JFK Intern and Mistress

    Why would a now 69-year old grandmother release a book that further besmirches the already tarnished legacy of President John F. Kennedy?  Mimi Alford, who as a 19-year old, served as an intern in the Kennedy White House in the 1960s.  In her newly published memoir, the ex-JFK intern describes how she served as JFK’s mistress, ready at his beck and call to meet him and perform sex acts upon him.  One of the more disturbing remembrances she put into this book is how JFK supposedly had her perform a sex act on one of his aides while he, the president, watched.

    While it is well known that JFK was not very faithful to his wife, Jackie Kennedy, some of the revelations in this new book, if true, puts Kennedy into an even dimmer historical light in terms of his morality and ethics.  To say nothing of Mimi Alford’s morality and ethics.  She clearly knew she was getting into an affair with a married man, and, just like Bill Clinton’s young sex intern, Monica Lewinsky, she apparently cared not a whit about the impact her lust for the most powerful man in the world would have on the president’s wife, his children, or upon the nation.

    There are no winners in this story.

    Don Pendleton (December 12, 1927 – October 23, 1995) was a pulp fiction-style writer best known for the creation of American vigilante anti-hero, Mack Bolan. The series made the Action-Adventure genre popular in the 1960s and 1970s and earned Pendleton the nickname of “the father of action adventure”. The Mack Bolan novels penned by Pendleton revolved around Bolan’s one-man war against the mafia, beginning with War Against the Mafia in 1969, and ending with Satan’s Sabbath in 1980. Once Pendleton sold the rights to the series, the first book out was The New War by Saul Wernick, which started Bolan’s fight against terrorism. Other works by Pendleton include the Joe Copp and Ashton Ford Series.

    Pendleton served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, serving in all theaters of the war. His enlistment ended in November of 1947. He returned to active duty in 1952 during the Korean War and served until 1954. He worked as a telegrapher for the Southern Pacific Railroad until 1957, and then as an air traffic control specialist for the Federal Aviation Administration. In the 1960s, he worked for Martin-Marietta on the Titan missile program. He later served as an engineering administrator at NASA during the Apollo missions. Pendleton also worked on the C-5 Galaxy transport aircraft program.

    Pendleton wrote several of his earlier, non-Executioner books under the pseudonyms Dan Britain and Stephan Gregory.

    Pendelton wrote in the pulp fiction tradition, and his Execution character,Mack Bolan was larger than life, responsible for killing literally hundreds of mobsters over the course of his original thiry-eight novels. Also in the pulp tradition, he left a trademark “calling card”, a marksman’s medal, wherever he struck. Many see similarities between the Executioner and Marvel Comics’ The Punisher and Marvel freely acknowledge they took some inspiration from the novels in creating their antiheroic character. Bolan also inspired DC Comics’ The Vigilante.
