Gore Vidal’s nephew and half-sister claim he was a pedophile

Gore Vidal’s nephew and half-sister claim the celebrated writer was a pedophile who carried out ‘Jerry Sandusky acts’ on underage boys as they challenge his $37 million will

  • Vidal’s half-sister, Nina Straight, and nephew, Burr Steers, claim Vidal ‘had underage sex’
  • The alleged circumstances were described as ‘Jerry Sandusky acts’, referring to the former Penn State football coach convicted of child molestation
  • Vidal’s long-time rival, political commentator William Buckley, is said to have had a ‘file’ of incriminating evidence against him, which Vidal was ‘terrified’ of
  • Vidal left his entire $37 million estate to Harvard University following his death last year, but his family are contesting the will, saying he was not mentally competent when he filed it
Allegations have surfaced suggesting that eccentric late writer Gore Vidal was a pedophile.
The claims have been made by his half-sister, author Nina Straight, and his nephew, Hollywood actor and director Burr Steers, who are in the process of contesting the essayist’s will.
Vidal died last year, aged 86, from pneumonia and left his entire estate, estimated at $37 million, to Harvard University.
In a feature that appeared in the New York Times, Ms Straight – who had a ‘turbulent though close relationship’ with Vidal – said the openly-gay author had had sex with underage men.
She described the alleged circumstances as ‘Jerry Sandusky acts’, referring to the former Penn State assistant football coach convicted of child molestation.

Mr Steers – who directed the Zac Efron film Charlie St Cloud – said that conservative columnist William F. Buckley – who had a long-running public feud with Vidal, which also played out in court – had evidence linking Vidal to the alleged crimes.
Vidal was said to be ‘terrified’ about the information Buckley had against him.

‘I know Buckley had a file on him that Gore feared,’ Mr Steers said in the New York Times article.
‘It would make sense if that material was about him having underage sex.
‘Gore spent alot of time in Bangkok, after all.’
The Thailand capital is known for child prostitution, with an estimated 2000 children said to be forced into the industry.

    Anonymous, I do hope you are not throwing all Gore’s in one basket==what do you mean by,”Keeping it in the family?” I do not condone sexual (or any other)crimes against children nor the human race in general, nor do I condone false accusations and character defamation either! As a Gore, I can defend my father’s family as being virtuous, talented, kind, generous and intelligent! Gore Vidal shared letters/genealogy with me before and after he moved to Italy. This information was greatly appreciated and helpful. He also showed respect to me as a woman and professional producer of benefit shows for our Veterans, humanitarian projects, and abused animals. This is all that I wish to convey at this time. Thank you for the opportunity to express my view. (A Gore).
