The Kennedy family fortune was born through the illegal bootlegging of booze during Prohibition (1919-33).  Did this eternally doom their heirs to the following litany of tragedies???




? Joseph “Joe” Sr. Allegedly had an affair with actress Gloria Swanson, which his wife Rose ignored.
1941 Rosemary

Joe Sr. secretly ordered that his daughter Rosemary have a lobotomy because she was retarded. Rosemary is still alive in a Wisconsin institution because of the effects of the failed lobotomy.

Died in a plane crash during World War II on a dare-devil mission he was warned not to undertake. He was 29.
1948 Kathleen
(eldest daughter of Joe & Rose)
Hadn’t spoken to her father in years because he didn’t approve of her husband, William John Robert Cavendish, the Marquess of Hartington. A year after her husband died in a plane crash during WWII, she was flying back to reconcile with her father when her plane crashed in France, killing her. She was 28.
? John F.JFK It is little known that JFK was married in a civil ceremony before ever meeting Jackie, and later got the marriage annulled and destroyed all evidence from existence.
various President JFK Allegedly had an affair with Marilyn Monroe – and maybe others, including prostitutes in the White House – while married to Jackie.

1973 Joseph “Joe” II
(eldest son to RFK)
Involved in a car accident that left a female passenger paralyzed for life. Now a Massachusetts congressman, Joe announced in 1997 he was dropping plans to run for governor. That same year, his ex-wife wrote a book, “Shattered Faith,” depicting him as a narcissistic bully and criticizing him for asking the Roman Catholic church for an annulment (instead of a divorce) to erase their 12-year marriage. Supposedly Joe wanted to remain in the church, so he was willing to say that because he’d lacked “due discretion” he had never really been married. The annulment got overturned and his next marriage was not within the Catholic church.
12/31/1997 Michael
(son to RFK)
Killed playing “ski football” in Aspen, Colorado, after being told to stop because it was dangerous. He was 39. Drew negative publicity for an alleged affair with his family’s underage baby sitter. This ruined brother Joe II’s chances of being elected Governor of Massachusetts.
