“Tainted by Suspicion”: Panel at the Heritage Foundation featuring Craig Shirley

In the midst of the 1876 election controversy, President Grant said, “The country cannot afford to have the result tainted by suspicion of illegal or false returns.” But suspicion reigned in this and other disputed contests where many Americans believed their president was selected rather than elected. Political campaigns are now – and almost always have been – an ugly business, manipulated and rife with backroom shenanigans and shady deals.

This panel at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. took place on August 9, 2016, and featured Robert B. Bluey, Fred Lucas, Paul Brandus, and Craig Shirley.

Below are several pictures of the event:
