About the Book by Beverly Gage Titled “G-Man: J. Edgar Hoover and the Making of the American Century”

From a Washington Post review by Kai Bird of the book by Beverly Gage titled “G-Man: J. Edgar Hoover and the Making of the American Century”:

On Oct. 7, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson’s longtime aide Walter Jenkins walked into the YMCA near the White House after a party at the Newsweek magazine office and had sex in the bathroom with a homeless Army veteran. The vice squad arrested Jenkins, booked him and released him. A week later, the story made headlines on the eve of the presidential election that pitted Johnson against Republican Barry Goldwater.
