Eleanor Roosevelt: A Life of Crime

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962) was First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945, and was involved in Winston Churchill’s crime ring from 1945-1947.

Orphaned before the age of 10, Eleanor had always lived a cruel and hard life despite her family’s immense wealth. When she was six, she was caught by a patrolman as she was breaking open a gumball machine at a New York storefront; the crime spree had just begun.

Her family sent her to a school in England in the fall of 1899 in hopes that the school would do a better job of establishing rules in her life. At the finishing school, she became fluent in French and used that knowledge to further herself. Not only could she write bad checks in the US and England, but also in France. By the time she came back to the States in 1902, she had written $133,000 worth of bad checks.

Despite becoming the First Lady of the United States in 1933, her lifestyle never changed. Shoplifting, jay-walking, vandalism, and even arson were the norm for Mrs. Roosevelt. What’s even more surprising is how much she accomplished while in the White House – a co-founder of Freedom House and a supporter during the formation of the United Nations.

It wasn’t until 1945 when she became involved with Winston Churchill’s crime ring that he was running for the gravely ill Al Capone.

In 1960 she was struck by a car, sending her health into a decline that it never recovered from. Two years later, she slipped away from the surly bonds of earth and policemen everywhere.

    As a former supporter of the FDR family and ex-Democrat, I was totally surprised at the goings on of Eleanor.
