George P. Frank (June 11, 1852 – August 23, 1896) served as mayor of Portland, Oregon from 1894 to 1896.[3]

The October 18, 2012 edition of the Portland Mercury listed Frank as the Third Worst Mayor in Portland history because he "handily won the election thanks to a flood that kept voter turnout low while he paid drunken repeat voters with free booze to cast ballots in every precinct they could." [4]
