Reagan Press Secretary’s Family Feud

Larry Speakes, press secretary for Ronald Reagan is stuck in the middle of a nasty court battle. Now 69, Speakes is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia while his third wife is fighting his children for control of his estate and his care. The Speakes children are claiming neglect in response to his wife’s allegations that Speakes was abducted when his son took him from his home in Arlington after seeing what he claims were appalling solo living conditions.
