is the dictionary definition of poliomyelitis or polio:
acute infectious disease caused by the poliovirus and characterized
by fever, motor paralysis, and atrophy of skeletal muscles often with
permanent disability and deformity and marked by inflammation of nerve
cells in the anterior gray matter in each lateral half of the spinal
cord—called also infantile paralysis (Merriam-Webster Dictionary).
Teddy Roosevelt became President of the United States after the assassination
of President McKinley in 1901.
The next Roosevelt
who was predestined to become President of the United States
was named Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR). Franklin was a 5th cousin
of "plastic" man Teddy.
FDR began his meteoric
rise by marrying Anna Eleanor Roosevelt—the granddaughter of Martha
Eleanor and Franklin
after their wedding.

that time he began an affair with his secretary named Lucy
(1891 - 1948).
This femme fatale
was extremely attractive and she had been "educated" at a
convent in Austria. Eleanor found out about the affair in 1918 when
Franklin returned from World War I in Europe:
In the course
of unpacking Franklin's luggage, Eleanor discovered a neatly bound
packet of love letters from Lucy Mercer. "The bottom dropped
out of my world," Eleanor remembered. "I faced myself, my
surroundings, my world, honestly for the first time. (Smith, FDR,
When the affair
became known, Lucy said that her Church would not allow her to marry
a divorced man, and Eleanor knew that a divorce would ruin his chances
of ever reaching the White House.
A compromise was
reached when Franklin promised that he would stop seeing Lucy. However,
the callous Franklin continued the affair clandestinely.
It was at that critical
juncture that a "friend" of the family named Louis Howe came
to the rescue and promised Eleanor that he would cure her husband of

summer, Eleanor and the children spent the summer on an island off the
coast of Canada called Campobello. Franklin joined his family on August
arrived at Campobello Sunday evening and found their eighteen bedroom
"cottage" overflowing with guests. In addition to five children
and the normal complement of servants, tutors, and governesses, Louis
Howe and his family were visiting, as were several friends from Washington,
including Romanian diplomat Prince Antoine Bibesco and his wife, Elizabeth,
daughter of former British prime minister Herbert Asquith. (Smith,

in a CONfederate Navy homosexual scandal in Newport, Rhode Island. Roosevelt
was accused of encouraging sailors to pose as homosexuals in order to
entrap "real" homosexuals.

an hour later Roosevelt felt a sudden chill. He told Eleanor he thought
he was catching a cold and had better not risk infecting the children.
He would go straight to bed. Eleanor sent up a tray of food, but he
was not hungry. He had trouble sleeping that night and continued to
tremble despite two heavy woolen blankets. The next morning he was
worse. When he swung his legs out of bed and attempted to stand, his
left leg buckled beneath him. He managed to get up and shave and assumed
the problem would pass. "I tried to persuade myself that the
trouble with my leg was muscular, that it would disappear as I used
it. But presently it refused to work, and then the other collapsed
as well." FDR dragged himself back to bed, and when Eleanor took
his temperature it was 102. (Smith, FDR, pp. 188-189).

that day onward, FDR was confined to a wheelchair and he was totally
dependent on Eleanor and Louis Howe. Howe encouraged Franklin to resume
his political career and to seek the Presidency as if nothing had happened.
the beginning, ER and Howe agreed that insofar as possible Franklin
should not be treated as an invalid. Louis maintained that FDR's political
future was bright and downplayed the seriousness of his illness. He
planted optimistic stories with the press and wrote cheery letters
to Roosevelt's wide circle of correspondents.
"Do you really believe that Franklin has a political future?"
"I believe someday Franklin will be President," Howe replied.
Eleanor supported Howe in every way. She ushered a continuous stream
of visitors in to see Franklin and soon undertook speaking engagements
on his behalf. She joined Howe in urging FDR to persevere in his exercises—perhaps
a little more sternly than Roosevelt might have desired. Howe was
better at cajoling Franklin because he had a lighter touch, interspersing
gossipy anecdotes among his exhortations to get on with the job.(Smith,

right after the crippling of FDR with "polio" an elaborate
deception began to be implemented that would show FDR as physically
normal in every way:
so, aided and encouraged by Louis Howe and Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin
Roosevelt began his battle to live a normal life. Louis now became
a full-fledged member of the Roosevelt household, an arrangement that
continued to the day of his death and took him from the Roosevelt
town house in New York City to the family estate at Hyde Park, the
Governor's mansion in Albany, and finally to the White House. (Stiles,
