Reznikoff and Hersh hoodwinked by fake documents


Recommended Posts

<quote on>

In 1997, John Reznikoff thought the Kennedy family and the mob was out

to get him. The collector of rare historical items felt he

inadvertently made some powerful enemies when he came across documents

linking John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe and the mob together.

"I'm thinking that someone's going to kill me, basically, said

Reznikoff. That's what's going to happen, that this stuff was not

supposed to be released."

The only problem is that the documents turned out to be fabricated.

His best friend who unearthed the documents turned out to be a con

man.

.....

To listen to the latest episode of This American Life, go to the

official website. The Reznikoff segment begins 26 minutes into the

episode.

Thanks, Peter. I LOVE the part where they believe the documents are real, and that Peter Jennings is performing a hatchet job for the big bad evil KENNEDYS. Classic.

Reznikoff now has a business in Westport called University Archives. He has a number of Lee Harvey Oswald relics, including several group photos of Oswald in the Marines. Oswald wrote the names of some of his fellow Marines on the back of one photo. Here is a recent You Tube video displaying Reznikoff's collection:
