Not a dime in the government's money could be spent without approval by Mills, until it became known that he was involved with a stripper.
Mills is now dead. Fanne Fox still strips.
ANNABELLE BATTISTELLA: Better known as "Fanne Foxe, The Argentine Firecracker"; Battistella leaped from Arkansas Rep. Wilbur Mills' limo one night in 1974 and ran into the Tidal Basin in Washington. The alcoholic Mills was eventually forced to check into a rehab center. He retired in 1976, and died in 1992. Battistella kept performing, often under the name "The Tidal Basin Bombshell"; and wrote the "The Stripper and the Congressman"; but tried to commit suicide in 1976. She is believed to be in Argentina.
