During an election year, passions run high and accusations get thrown around with regularity. Usually those charges relate to the current candidates or the present-day politics of the party. But former Time magazine associate editor Michael Walsh says the entire history of the Democratic party is one of crime and corruption - from Aaron Burr’s building of Tammany Hall to how Democrats tried to defeat Abraham Lincoln’s re-election bid and from Franklin Roosevelt’s rise to the presidency to the Chicago machine connected to the current administration. Walsh says doing whatever it takes to win led to these political machines that seemed to run big city politics for years. Walsh explains why he believes this trend is worse among Democrats than any other party and why the current administration is not that different from previous generations of Democrats - just more direct about it. Walsh also indicts his former colleagues in the mainstream media for doing little more than carrying water for their preferred candidates and issues.
