Memorandum Covering Conference with Max Goldschein and Vincent Russo, Special United States Attorneys on May 15, 1950

Description

Memorandum containing a statement from an unnamed former member of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners and his contacts with Charles Binaggio. He describes efforts by "the Binaggio political group" to remove him from the police board, and a meeting with Binaggio arranged by Herman Rosenberg, wherein Binaggio stated that he felt his group was due patronage and favors due to their support of Governor Smith's election. Binaggio recommended men for chief of police and heads of other divisions who would be favorable to his interests, and after several meetings on these issues, ultimately offered a bribe to make these personnel changes.
