U.S. vs. Samuel J. Clark, Marie Ogden, Myrtle E. Middleton, Joseph Maher, Herbert Campbell, and Don Depasco: Memorandum on Motion for New Trial

Description

Memorandum on motion for new trial for Criminal Case No. 13676: United States vs. Samuel J. Clark, Marie Ogden, Myrtle E. Middleton, Joseph Maher, Herbert Campbell, and Don Depasco, Defendants. The document provides an intriguing and detailed account of the voting fraud that occurred in the 28th Precinct of the 12th Ward of Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri on November 3, 1936. Joseph Maher, known to be the 28th Precinct captain for the Pendergast Machine, claims that "In what I did I had no intention of defrauding any specific person". Since the indictment charged the defendants with defrauding individual citizens, the author of the document motions for a new trail in which charges are brought upon Maher et al. for defrauding any and all citizens.
