Grover Cleveland

Grover Cleveland

Grover Cleveland is known to be the only American president to have served two non-consecutive terms in office and he's remembered as a courageous and honest statesman. But before he became President, he sexually assaulted a married woman “by use of force and violence and without my consent.” She became pregnant, and in order to cover up the scandal he had her committed to an insane asylum and had her child sent to an orphanage. His wife, Frances Clara Folsom, was also the youngest first lady, who married him at the age of 21. She was the daughter of Oscar Folsom. Oscar was a longtime close friend of Grover Cleveland. Cleveland met Frances Clara Folsom at the age of 27, shortly after she was born. When Oscar Folsom, died in an accident, Grover Cleveland was made the trustee of his estate and oversaw the upbringing of Frances Clara Folsom.
