FDR and Lucy Mercer

A reader of this blog told me that Franklin Delano Roosevelt should be included among the philandering presidents.

Lucy Mercer

Researchers say that FDR and Lucy Mercer began an affair shortly after Eleanor, FDR’s wife, hired Mercer as Eleanor’s personal secretary.  This was more than a dozen years before FDR became President.  His paramour was with him at his Warm Springs, Georgia cottage when the President died on April 12, 1945.  She lived only 3 years longer.
