The BadBoys Babes
She was the stripper and he was the powerful chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. When park police stopped a car near the Tidal Basin in Washington driven by the Honorable Wilbur Mills, the stripper jumped out of the car into the water.
Oh no, nothing happened, said the chairman. But then Larry Krebs, WMAL-TV camera man, caught it all on tape. This incident in 1974, between Mills and Annabella Batista, aka Fanne Foxe, set the stage for modern Washington scandal. Didn't help Wilbur's reputation when they showed up on a Boston stage a week later, drunk as a skunk. Wilbur doesn't remember any of it. Probably best that way. They guy actually wanted to be President of the U.S.
