Former President Protection

Posted By on May 23, 2013

Okay everyone I just had a crazy question come to mind from nowhere, and I need your help.

Has there ever been a threat against a former president of the United States, let alone an assassination attempt? For my part I cannot think of a single reported one. Additionally, this protection is extended to the spouses of the former president for their entire lifetimes, AND their children until age 16. Why? Most importantly, we will never know the cost of this service as they are kept secret.

With no known threat OR attempt is this simply a means of extending the imperial presidency?

Come on people make your comments. Am I missing something here?

    No attempts against a former President but I vaguely recall an incident with a first lady before the Kennedy term. Just can’t put a finger on it though. Bob B. – Virginia
