    Wasn’t the mayor shot & killed when somebody tried to assassinate FDR right after he was elected President?

    • J.R. Schmidt Says:

      That’s the man. Check out the two-part episode “The Unhired Assassin” on Robert Stack’s old TV series “The Untouchables.” Historically inaccurate, but still fun to watch.
