a trusted ally of union boss Jimmy Hoffa gunned down after testifying about a corrupt governor selling prison pardons and a gunman who donned a wig and blackface to throw authorities off the scent.

There's a lot to unpack here

To be fair, they didn't have the internet back then. Nowadays you can just check someone's Twitter or Facebook feeds.

Why do I have a feeling the contracted killer was paid with a check and the memo line was filled out, "Contract Killing"?

The history of racist 'hitmen' in America is a troublesome one. I encourage you all to boycott the use of bigoted or sexist hitpersons and to encourage diversity hiring on your next hit.

Maybe in 40 years we'll find out who sent all those violent trump supporters into the capitol building to murder trumps opponents with trump flags.

Wow. I've lived in TN all my life, and never knew this story (which happened the same year I was born, it looks like). Crazy shiat.

cretinbob: A Southern Democrat from 50 years ago would be a Republican today.


that's the tired go-to excuse for excusing past misdeeds.  And it only works one way.  No republicans would be a democrat.  Actually, there is not much left of the democratic party that existed in the 50's, 60's & 70's.  they would indeed all be republicans because the left has hijacked the democratic party and decided it would be better if we were a communist society.

Dude.
It's Tennessee. Have you ever been to Tennessee, especially back in the 70's? Can you find Tennessee on a map? Do you understand qualifiers?

Almost as if something happened in the 1960's that changed the makeup of the party.

Actually, both sides of this argument are nonsense - this was not a partisan issue at that time.
Both parties supported unions back in the pre-Reagan era, and both parties had crooked members with connections to crooked union people.
This was just plain old fashioned corruption - nothing partisan involved.
