Controversy[edit]

So did this fella ever do anything controversial? Did he have any critics?? Philatio (talk) 04:47, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

I seem to remember him quoted as saying he'd drink a glass of PCBs. I guess this was during the time when we were discovering how bad they are for us. 67.240.162.73 (talk) 06:57, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
There's also no mention in the article of the events leading to Engblom v. Carey. I should think being responsible for strikebreaking of such an extreme sort must have been controversial to someone. If someone who supported strikebreaking and blatantly violating the Third Amendment to the United States Constitution (one of the few, if any, instances of such being brought to court), as well as the aforementioned pro-pollution stance has nothing at all critical in his article, quite apart from not having those incidents noted, I wonder what else we are missing. I would further note as an aside that I sincerely doubt any politician who ever existed was bereft of critics, so any article on any politician without reference to some kind of criticism should be immediately suspect.
