Do modern politicians give you the creeps, migranes, stomach cramps, and worse?
Are you sick to death of Romney, Perry, Newt, Ron Paul, even Obama — with almost a full year left till Election Day?
Don’t fret. TWEED IS BACK !!
Today, we proudly announce the new Viral History Press LLC edition of BOSS TWEED: the Corrupt Pol who Conceived the Soul of Modern New York.
|Tweed counting the votes, according to Thomas Nast, 1871.
Tweed was the baddest, most crooked politician ever to breathe oxygen on American soil. No contest. No excuses. He stole more money, fixed more elections, and paid more bribes than anyone else. A New York jury convicted him on 204 counts of fraud — and the city still honors him today by putting his name on, of all things, the County Courthouse in lower Manhattan.
It took Thomas Nast’s brilliant cartoons and a city-wide revolt to drag him from power. Still, Tweed escaped from prison, fled to Spain, was recaptured and brought back, publicly confessed, died behind bars, and people loved him even more.
Read his incredible story — a New York Times notable book. (Click here for all the great reviews.) Share it with your political friends.
