Ronald Reagan was the 40th president of the United States, serving from 1981 to 1989. Reagan was also an actor before he began his political career, working in Hollywood for 30 years.
Ronald Reagan’s time in Hollywood also included a stint as the president of the Screen Actors Guild, and if you believe the story of actress Selene Walters, the future POTUS used his power in the entertainment industry against at least one woman.
In the 1991 book Nancy Reagan: The Unauthorized Biography, author Kitty Kelley revealed Selene Walters’ claims that Ronald Reagan had sex with her against her will one night. Walters said that he came to her home unexpectedly in the middle of the night and then assaulted her.
When the book was released in 1991, the story was treated more or less as a joke, but Walters later replicated her story in its entirety to People, changing only one detail: She admitted to letting the future POTUS into her apartment that night.
Slate writes that Walters told People, “I opened the door. Then it was the battle of the couch. I was fighting him. I didn’t want him to make love to me. He’s a very big man, and he just had his way. Date rape? No, God, no, that’s [Kelley’s] phrase. I didn’t have a chance to have a date with him.”
Walters didn’t file charges, but she reportedly told multiple friends about the assault.
Ronald Reagan was able to suppress the story nearly completely when the book was published in 1991. When a reporter stopped Ronald Reagan on his way to church to ask about the story, he replied, “I don’t think a church would be the proper place to use the word I would have to use in discussing that.”
Author Kitty Kelley defended her book to People at the time, explaining, “You can see that something is right about this book. It is disturbing too many powerful people not to be taken seriously.”
The book also claims that Nancy Reagan had an affair with Frank Sinatra that lasted for several years. The author claims that a member of Nancy Reagan’s staff told her that when Frank was visiting the White House, “She was not to be disturbed. For anything. And that included a call from the President himself.”
Kitty Kelley at it again. Dead men tell no tales. Neither do they sue.
I would more think Kitty Kelley probably raped Reagan of what we all know of him and grew up in the same time period. Ron was a gently, kind man and would not do something like rape. Indict kelley for lies, and remote viewing can prove the truth so she can’t get away with lies. My group knows how to do remote viewing.
I have a real problem about tales from years ago when, for sure, nobody can prove anything one way or the other. Only if an exact date is given and somehow history can then at least prove that the accused was far away from the location on that date or that he/she was definitely in that location on that exact date. It just cannot be accepted as credible. Much like the story about Kavanaugh – she remembered everything exactly, except never told anyone at the time, but the folks she said were there, said they absolutely were not, no exact date, couldn’t give the address, couldn’t remember who drove her there or who drove her home! This stuff really needs to stop. And a man does not RAPE ONE WOMAN and no other!
Sounds like someone frying to make money off of someone who has been dead for years and can’t defend themselves
The accusations of assault by Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump arose only after they changed from the Democratic to the Republican parties. Is this only a coincidence? I think not. Believing women must always be balanced with the rights of men to receive justice and protection from false accusations. We must have facts in order to prove such unlawful behavior. It is important that women report the attack in real time, tell law enforcement authorities and trusted loved ones details about the alleged attack, and get a rape kit taken at a hospital immediately before showering as evidence in a criminal or civil trial. These are the only ways to establish justice for sexual assault, not telling vague tales decades later that may or may not be true. In America, we are innocent until proven otherwise according to the Constitution. Sexual assault is a terrible crime and it requires courage to report, no question about it.
