I would like to read that. My brother was born in Duval Country, my grandparents and many other members of my family are buried in Alice, so I am a little familiar with Duval country. I really wish I could recall all the stories my mother and grandparents used to tell about that county
It describes the corruption in Duval County, and how the Duke of Duval stole the election for LBJ by stuffing the ballot box in adjoining Jim Wells County.
The book covers far more than that, though, and it really opens your eyes on county politics in Texas.
County government is actually FAR more powerful than state government in Texas, which has very limited powers. That's why all the busts of city and county officials in this state come from the FBI.
