On this episode, Ginger takes us back to a time in American history where a rich blowhard used his political power to increase his own personal wealth. That’s right, back to the 1850’s.
Introducing Boss Tweed, a man who became the first and only corrupt politician in America. Ever heard of Tammany Hall? Yeah, me neither. But, boy, did they love lining their pockets with public dollars! Something that’s never happened again, I’m sure! Featuring cooked books, diamond broaches, and axe-wielding street gangs.
