It might by hard to imagine, but John Lennon may have been a closet Republican.

In a new documentary called "Beatles Stories," Fred Seaman, who worked for Lennon from 1979 until his death in December 1980, says Lennon wasn't the peace-loving militant fans thought he was.

Seaman says Lennon felt a little embarrassed by his former radicalism and also claims Lennon was a fan of Ronald Reagan and would have voted for him if he could have.
