The Mercer County LGBT Democrats welcome New Jersey’s very own award winning author, professor, and historian, Joseph Cummins to discuss his book, Anything for a Vote: Dirty Tricks, Cheap Shots, and October Surprises in U.S. Presidential Campaigns. This book is a complete history of mudslinging, character assassination, and other election strategies.
You might think that the 2016 politicians played rough — but history reveals that dirty tricks are as American as apple pie. This revised and updated edition of Anything for a Vote covers 225-plus years of smear campaigns and bad behavior in U.S. presidential elections, from George Washington to Barack Obama.
Joe will discuss his book with an accompanying slideshow presentation filled with humor. Professor Cummins will have copies available for purchase at $20 (cash or check) and will personally sign your copy. This event is free. Now let the name-calling begin!
Where: Trenton Social at 449 S. Broad St. Trenton, NJ 08611 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm (Parking available in the rear lot off Ferry Street)
