rumor has it.

so about 18 years ago i was at work one afternoon and conversing with a friend/customer at the counter. we were discussing politics (go figure) and i made a crack about jimmy carter.
my friend was at one time, a farmer who grew up in the area around plains georgia and supposedley knew where the bodies were burried.

"now scrutney" said my friend, "you shouldn't talk like that about a member of the kennedy family."

"herschal" i responded, "i was talking about carter, not one of the kennedys."

"but he is one of the kennedys, scrut." and he proceeded to tell me a story i had never heard.( and hadn't thought about until i recounted  the story to another friend, this afternoon...we thought we'd search it up on line and have a good laugh when nothing showed up but...that's not what happened...we actually found several re-tellings of the tale herschal told):

obviously not unimpeachable citations...but hopefully enough to get a discussion going.

so what say you bumrejects?
have you heard this rumor?
does it sound like it might be true?
do you care?
do we need yet another reason to dislike the kennedys?

I haven't heard the story before, and don't think it has any merit.  

Bessie Lillian Gordy's life is well documented from her birth in Richmond, Ga. in 1898 through her move to Plains, Ga. in 1920 - mainly because she's 1st cousin to Berry Gordy, Sr., whose family tree is well documented due to his music industry fame - prior to her marriage to Earl Carter, Sr. on 9/26/23, just after Lillian graduated as an RN from the Grady Memorial School of Nursing in Atlanta, Ga.  

Former President "Jimmy" is Earl Carter, Jr., and was born 10/1/24.

Also I don't need anything to lower my opinion of the entire Kennedy clan, beginning with scoundrel Joe Sr.

I'm amazed that I've never heard the rumor...having grown up in Atlanta and having tons of relatives in south Georgia.

But several of my political acquaintances throughout the years have told me Carter rumors.  Most have the same theme...that Carter is chronically depressed and often does not bathe for weeks at a time.  One person swears he attended a fundraiser for Carter on a yacht back in the late 1970s.  He claims Carter showed up in dirty clothes with greasy hair and offensive body odor.  

I have no idea whether any of it is truth or fiction, but I can attest that the rumors have been rampant for many many years.  

As to how any of that might segue into a Kennedy story...I'll try to come up with something.   Let's go with: Both Jimmy and Teddy were often dirty, but Teddy was the kind of dirty you just can't wash off.
