Joseph McCarthy

The Corrupt Senator

National Betrayal

While Senator of Wisconsin, McCarthy feared he may not be reelected. To ensure that he could stay in office, he claimed he had a list of 205 on the state department who were part of the American Communist party. He later accused innocent people of being associated with communism. He was finally shut down after he began investigating communism in the US military.
