"The Home Rule Bedtime Story As Told To Our Legislators By Judge McElroy"

Description: 

Clipping from the Kansas City Star of Tom Pendergast, Joe Shannon, and Cas Welch dressed as old women and knitting while the Kansas City Police Department plays like children on the floor. The signs on the wall show, "God Bless Our Home", "Crime never pays", and "The way of the transgressor is hard".
