FDR, Bugger

February 1982
National Review;2/5/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 2, p94
This article focuses on some bugging and campaigning tricks of U.S. politicians during U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration. Roosevelt was supposedly interested in the love life of War Production Board chief Donald Nelson and had him investigated. During the 1940 presidential campaign, Roosevelt was accused of giving instruction to subordinates on how to smear his opponent Wendell Willkie, who was having a clandestine affair with book-review editor Irita Van Doren.
