  1. On September 3rd, 1935, US Senator Huey Pierce Long of Louisiana addressed the senate and told them of a plot by the military industrial complex to assassinate him. On September 8, Huey was in the State Capitol in Baton Rouge for a special session of the Louisiana legislature, pushing through a number of bills including a measure to gerrymander opponent Judge Benjamin Pavy out of his job. According to the generally accepted version of events, Pavy’s son-in-law, Dr. Carl Weiss, approached Huey in a corridor and shot him at close range in the abdomen. Huey’s bodyguards immediately opened fired on Weiss as Huey ran to safety. Weiss was killed instantly, and Huey was rushed to a nearby hospital, where emergency surgery failed to stop internal bleeding. Long died 3 days later. After the shooting, the biggest public controversy was whether Weiss was part of an assassination plot with Long's enemies, not whether he actually shot the senator, but almost a century later, some still insist that Weiss never fired a shot. Anyone else interested in this case? http://time.com/4020709/huey-long-anniversary/
