Equal Representation

Senator Styles Bridges of New Hampshire tells the story about one of his predecessors, Senator George H. Moses, who came storming into the While House during the Coolidge administration to complain that a man under consideration for a Republican Senatorial nomination was “an out-and-out s.o.b.”

“That could be,” Coolidge conceded. “But there’s a lot of them in the country and I think they are entitled to representation in the Senate.”
