Annotation As recently as the 1950s, Portland was known throughout the country as a Mecca of vice and sin. Portland Confidential rips the covers from Portland's biggest dirty little secret. Purveyors of all the traditional vices operated openly under the noses of the local police. All they had to do was pay off the cops and, of course, their bosses in City Hall. One day in the spring of 1956, it all blew up in everyone's faces. Things got so bad that Bobby Kennedy hauled two dozen of the town's more colorful characters to Washington, DC and grilled them before a national TV audience. It couldn't have been more embarrassing. Adult. Some descriptions of sex. Some violence and strong language.
