Heh ... apologies - I just noticed the sub-headline from the newspaper article "Union Leader Payton Flunks Detector Test"

Of course he failed a lie detector test ... he's a union leader!

It is really bad form to post "newspaper clippings" without the name of the newspaper or the date.
No way to verify or confirm, and no opportunity to search for follow-up articles, if any.

One of the dirtiest tricks JFK pulled during his election was to tell General Dynamic employees in Fort Worth if Nixon were elected he would shut them down.

According to wiki:

"Charges against Pavlick were dropped on December 2, 1963, ten days after Kennedy's assassination in Dallas. Judge Emett Clay Choate ruled that Pavlick was unable to distinguish between right and wrong in his actions, but kept him in the mental hospital. The federal government also dropped charges in August 1964, and Pavlick was eventually released from the New Hampshire State Mental Hospital on December 13, 1966.

Pavlick died at the age of 88 on November 11, 1975 at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Manchester, New Hampshire."

He was right. Wealth did buy him the presidency.
