Lee sure faced a lot of public and official scrutiny in his lifetime. An interesting gem from the investigation as to if he was being extorted for being gay is this piece:
Liberace was being observed under the guise of protecting him because our government suspected he was gay. Putting together a plan to subpoena him over small horse bets had absolutely nothing to do with protecting him from extortionists.
When critics seek to bash Liberace for never being “out” to the world remember that the world he lived in, he was guilty in the eyes of his own government for being himself.
