Description: 

Letter labeled "PERSONAL" from S. H. Toucey to Senator Estes Kefauver, regarding his Special Committee to Investigate Organized Crime in Interstate Commerce. Toucey writes that he doesn't "like CRIME anymore than the United States Senate do," and goes on to summarize his view of election fraud andand insurance scandals in Kansas City and Jackson County. Toucey appears to have been involved in a legal petition alleging fraud against New York Life Insurance Company in 1935, among other cases, and was snubbed by the Kansas City Star in his attempt at receiving greater publicity for his case. He further alleges corruption from the presidency and United States Senate down to local Jackson County judges and newspapers.
