Frank Hague was a Popular Mayor and He Still is - Unisex white tshirt with Mayor Frank Hague's face


He was a bad guy, but he built us a hospital with cool architecture and now he's not around anymore so in Jersey City we call that a net win. A weird number of politicians want to be him, which is just wrong. Still, the guy's shadow looms large all over Hudson County, and we are who we are in part because of him.

This is a t-shirt, drawn by Jersey City artist Amy Wilson and printed digitally. Each shirt is printed when it's ordered, so it takes about 3-7 business days to process your order and then ship. Then, it goes to you via regular mail. All told, please allow two weeks from order to receiving your product.

Proudly wear a shirt with a picture of the most corrupt mayor of Jersey City on it! Most corrupt so far. That we know of. I mean...

Some info on the guy, from Wikipedia:
Frank Hague (January 17, 1876 – January 1, 1956) was an American Democratic Party politician who served as the Mayor of Jersey City, New Jersey from 1917 to 1947, Democratic National Committeeman from New Jersey from 1922 until 1949, and Vice-Chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1924 until 1949.

Hague has a widely known reputation for corruption and bossism and has been called "the grandaddy of Jersey bosses." By the time he left office in 1947, he enjoyed palatial homes, European vacations, and a private suite at the Plaza Hotel. His wealth has been estimated to have been over $10 million at the time of his death, although his City salary never exceeded $8,500 per year and he had no other legitimate source of income. His desk, according to legend, had a specially designed lap drawer which could be pushed outward towards the person with whom he was meeting. This allowed his "guests" to discreetly deliver bribes in the form of envelopes containing large amounts of cash. [*Please note -- and this is Amy speaking here, not Wikipedia -- that desk now sits in proud display in Jersey City's City Hall.]
