- Franklin D Roosevelt, lovingly known as FDR had a love nest and several mistresses, possibly including a distant cousin.
The only U.S. president elected four times was fond of taking his mistresses to a cottage in upstate New York. He had a 20-year affair with his secretary, Missy LeHand, and a two-year affair with his wife’s social secretary, Lucy Mercer. Although no hard evidence of an affair with his cousin Daisy Suckley has been unearthed, several suggestive letters are there that indicate their relationship was quite intimate. America has ssome colourful presidents there!
