Flashback 1960: Nixon vs. Kennedy (and Mayor Daley)

November 6, 2020

One of the top 5 “rigged Presidential elections”.
Will 2020 make the list?

I lived in Chicago for much of the 70s and 80s.

So, I witnessed the power of Mayor Daley’s Democratic machine.

Its abuses were in plain sight for all to see: most notably, political patronage and vote fraud … think: voting rights for the deceased, “vote early and vote often”, “walking around money”, mysteriously appearing boxes of ballots.

The hallmark of the Chicago machine was the 1960 Presidential election between Kennedy and Nixon.

Fred Lucas, author of the book Tainted by Suspicion: The Secret Deals and Electoral Chaos of Disputed Presidential Elections, ranks Kennedy vs. Nixon as one of the top 5 “rigged Presidential elections”.

Here’s a summary what qualified that election for Lucas’ top 5 list…

Half of the country will consider the winner to be illegitimate

What a mess…

If Biden wins, Trump supporters will point to fraudulent mail voting and counting shenanigans happening behind closed doors in Democratic “machine” cities & states … Philly, Detroit, Milwaukee and Nevada.

If Trump prevails, it will undoubtedly be because of favorable court rulings on fraudulent mail votes, obstructed poll watchers and violation of state election laws (in Pennsylvania).  

Dems will claim unjustified intervention by the courts … and judicial bias.


Odds are that Biden will ultimately prevail.

If so, the good news is that it’ll be less likely that cities will get burned and looted.

The bad news (for Biden) is that half of the country will think that it got cheated …
