U.S. Senator
    (October 13, 1877-August 21, 1947)
    State Senator in Mississippi (1908-1912)
    Lieutenant Governor (1912-1916)
    Governor (1916-1920, 1928-1932)
    Democratic Senator from Mississippi (1935-1947)
    He was the most outspoken racist in the Senate.
    He told electors in Mississippi: 'I want to make it impossible for the Negro to vote and thus guarantee white supremacy.'
    During his campaign for Senator, he advocated deporting blacks to Africa.
    In 1938, he praised Adolf Hitler on the Senate floor.
    As a populist, he would only stand for the poor if they were white.
    He was not only racist, but he was also a crook, being convicted of accepting bribes from military contractors during World War II.
    After his death, one newspaper expressed relief and called his actions 'a stench in the nostrils of decent men.'
    He stood against big business, railroad companies in particular.
    He supported the New Deal.
    Other Senators kept him from real power by putting him in charge of the Washington D.C. committee, one of the least powerful committees.
    Although he was re-elected in 1946, the Senate refused to swear him in, therefore he resigned.
    He was respected in his home state; 5,000 Mississippians attended his funeral.
