"Open War at the Polls in 1934 When Factions Fell to Fighting"
Clipping from the Kansas City Times on October 20, 1966 describing the violence that erupted during the Municipal Election on March 27, 1934. The included photographs show damage done that day in 1934 to an automobile and building owned by the Citizens Fusion party, an anti-Pendergast organization in Kansas City. The article describes election day gang tactics, police complacency, padded voter rolls, and tactics used by Joe Doakes, a Pendergast machine precinct captain. The author then details the murder of Deputy Sheriff Lee Flacy, "a member of the L. C. (Doc) Johnson faction of the [Joe] Shannon wing."
