Who Was The Real J. Edgar?
Have you seen the new Clint Eastwood-directed J. Edgar yet? Today, we explore the real story behind the famed FBI director… was he America's greatest patriot or Big Brother incarnate?
Here are 8 Conspiracies About J. Edgar Hoover:
8. Big Brother Out Of Power. Thanks to J. Edgar's thirty-seven year tenure at the FBI, directors are now limited to ten year terms that can only be extended after approval by the United States Senate.
7. Crossdresser. In a 1993 biography, society divorcee Susan Rosenthiel claimed that Hoover was a crossdresser and that she had seen him on two separate occasions dressed as a woman at a "homosexual orgy" that she had attended with her bisexual husband. Also in attendance: conservative Roy Cohn, the lawyer who prosecuted the Rosenbergs. Sounds like some party.
