    Bill Agee, it was, and Mary Cunningham. He was CEO of Bendix, a mid-sized conglomerate. She was his executive assistant, fresh out of Harvard with her MBA. Then he promoted her to V.P. of Strategic Planning, and soon after everybody figured out what was up.

    That was back in 1980, and his Wikipedia entry STILL features their denial of an "alleged" affair. No confession, but how much evidence is required in these matters? A Board member of Bendix was asked how they knew there was an affair, and he admitted, "No one has witnessed penetration." Two years later, he was divorced and they were married.

    The bubble world of the Romney campaign had nothing on the reality denial level reached by Bill and Mary. To be fair, they both seemed like nice people, just more than a little messed up.

    BostonBilly, thanks for bringing back the memories.
