Not the usual intro to a story about a low-profile statewide race in Wisconsin:
Sex! The Green Bay Packers! Sex WITH the Green Bay Packers!
The usually ho-hum race for Wisconsin secretary of state is being spiced up by one candidate’s naughty tell-all book about her bed-hopping exploits with Green Bay football legends during the team’s glory days under Vince Lombardi in the 1960s.
Sandy Sullivan, a 65-year-old Republican with no political experience, self-published a gushing memoir in 2004 titled “Green Bay Love Stories and Other Affairs” in which she claims she was the girlfriend of Green Bay Packers Paul Hornung and Dan Currie, deflected a pass from Hall of Famer Don Hutson and was on the receiving end of a saucy comment from Richard Nixon.
I also did not realize the La Folletes, like the Tafts, were still active in politics.
