Ten years later, his successful bid for Mayor rattled the Yankee establishment. He worked on behalf of the poor, immigrants, and workers, but his administration was rife with graft, cronyism, and corruption. His namesake, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, would be the 35th President of the United States, read more.
