Presidential Secrets Revealed!
New York, NY -- Did you know Gerald Ford used to let off loud farts and blame them on his Secret Service men? Or that John Quincy Adams loved swimming in the nude?
History teachers never would have told you these things, but writer Cormac O'Brien will. He's the author of "Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents" (Quirk Books), which reveals all sorts of bizarre data about the men who've governed America.
Other presidential oddities...
-- Chester Arthur was a real clothes hog who owned more than 80 pairs of pants.
-- Grover Cleveland is the only U.S. president to have personally hanged someone: He threw a noose over two criminals' necks while working as a sheriff.
-- Warren G. Harding once gambled and lost a box of priceless White House china during a poker game.
-- Finally, John F. Kennedy was perpetually plagued by the venereal disease chlamydia and spent the first moments of the Bay of Pigs invasion getting a giant shot of penicillin.
