Taylor Rain’s History Lesson Of The Day…. remembering Gary Hart!
May 3 1987
The Miami Herald runs a story that Senator Gary Hart had spent the preceding weekend alone with a woman other than his wife. In an attempt to quell persistent rumors of an extramarital affair, Hart had previously challenged reporters to spy on him, saying: "Follow me around. I don’t care. I’m serious. If anybody wants to put a tail on me, go ahead. They’d be very bored." The Presidential candidate withdraws from the race just five days later, and the homewrecker, one Donna Rice, goes on to launch a career crusading against pornography.
