 Alabama Governor James Folsom, sr.
Folsom's first term in office was also marred by a paternity case and accusations "of scandal, misconduct, and corruption in various state agencies under Folsom's control or the guidance of his associates."

Folsom failed to engineer the changes in state government that would extend voting rights and other components of a democratic society to fls, poor whites and women.
During the first year of Folsom's second administration, most of his programs to expand state services were enacted and he almost succeeded in partly achieving his long-term goal of reapportionment in the legislature.

If state and local taxes had not increased faster than the size of the economy in the past 50 years then the right bar on this chart would be the same height as the left bar.

 Chinese Military Aid to Vietnam, 1950-1954
