Aid. Krause tried to say that the
aldermen were confusing the issue;
that an attorney shouldn't be judged
by the crooks he defended.
Aid. Kennedy came back with:
"Along with ills other past perform
ance the senator-has misrepresented
facts to this council. He told you
he had 20,000 subscribers in the
Automatic Phone Co., and when we
decided to investigate he admitted
