His autobiography goes into a bit of detail about this. It's quite fascinating, and the extent of the operation was very disturbing.
I don’t wanna read it, can you summarize that part here?
🎂 a cake for your troubles
If you are looking for an in-depth history of this woman's many MANY crimes and how people in power enabled her, I would recommend this Behind the Bastards episode on her:
I just listened to this one a couple weeks ago. Without going into too much detail, this lady is seriously one of the most evil people they’ve covered which is saying something.
She was featured on Unsolved Mysteries
Holy shit, that is truly sinister
I feel like in an alternate universe, Dusty Rhodes was that baby and cut nothing but limousine ridin, spathe mountain promos and Ric Flair was doing promos about hard times and how his dad was a plumber. I think I'm going cross eyed.
> spathe mountain
Excuse you, it's "thpathe"
Wooo, daddeh. Natcha Boi Dusty Rhodes.
I would highly recommend the podcast “Behind The Bastards” episodes on her.
No but really, this lady was a fucking monster. We have, on the record, that 500 children died because of her abuse or neglect. The actual number is most likely MUCH higher. She got away with doing this openly for decades because she was friends with judges, the daughter of a judge and was even so well connected that she was invited to President Truman’s inauguration.
While researching her, I was surprised when Ric Flair’s name came up. Other famous people involved are Joan Crawford, who got her twin babies from Georgia, and New York’s then-governor Herbert Lehman.
I may be misremembering (in which case there are two separate people who did this kind of thing) but Criminal podcast did an episode on Georgia Tann a couple years back. (The show is definitely worth a listen in general)
Never knew this about Flair.
He doesn’t even know when he was actually born. Just an estimate.
I don't want kids for various reasons, but I can't imagine looking at a baby and seeing nothing but profit. That's a person. How can anyone be *that* lacking in empathy? My heart goes out to everyone hurt by that woman's evil...
I mean the United States as a culture basically worships oligarchs who all knowingly profit off of child slave labor which leaves thousands mutilated and/or dead each year. It's not exactly surprising the wealthy would also literally be stealing kids as well.
Georgia Tann was legitimately one of this country’s greatest monsters.
Wonder if he's ever tried to find his family with the advent of DNA testing now?
Rich people are the worst
Not to disagree with you because rich people are the worst but a lot of the people who adopted from her had no idea the kids were stolen
Georgia Tann sounds like a cool rasslin’ name
This is my first time learning about this. First thing that comes to mind is that this woman is a BITCH!
Isn’t this pretty much human trafficking under a different name
a friend and i do a podcast on infamous people and events and she covered georgia tann in [our 14th episode](https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/14-georgia-tann/id1541939988?i=1000519686535). it's a hell of a story. i was livid listening.
Newborn stealin, wealin dealin!
who would *fucking what now?*
Just seen the post about Hornswoggle before this and got really confused
I would heartily recommend checking out the episode of Behind the Bastards about her. She was a monstrous human being and it's hard to measure how much damage she did.
This kind of clears up so much about his numerous marriages and escapades.
A baby stealin’, wheelin’, dealin’ son of a gun!
