Jess joins Carrie again- to talk about FDR's longest mistress/companion. Lucy Mercer Rutherford was Eleanor Roosevelt's social secretary in 1914. By mid-1916, it is believed Lucy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt began an affair. For the next few decades, it would be on/off, culminating finally to the day he died and she was present.
