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.

Yes, I did know there was a lot of power in county governments.
Thanks for the info on the book. I am going to try to locate it.
