The Dimming of Dewey's Halo

Spivack, Robert G.
October 1953
New Republic;10/26/53, Vol. 129 Issue 13, p14
The article discusses the aspirations of Thomas E. Dewey, Governor of New York for the fight against corruption. No Governor of New York ever brought with him to Albany, New York, more intimate knowledge of the ways of crooks than Governor Dewey. And no Governor of New York in recent years has done less about them, until prodded by his critics. That's the explanation for the "mess in Albany" which has shaken the New York Republican organization to its foundations and which may have disastrous political effects on the U.S. Administration itself.
