Talk:William L. Moyer
According to that Journal & Republican article, "D. L. [sic; 'D' for 'Dubya'?] Moyer … dropped dead less than a hour after the action [to remove Armstrong]," which contradicts our previous info showing him in office for four days. The New York Times has an earlier article from September 19, which I haven't purchased yet but doesn't seem to mention anyone dropping dead. I'm guessing the J&R conflated the events for embellishment. — admin • talk 21:37, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
- Haha... that's just like those 1930s Republican journals. — dscosson • talk 22:32, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Hey, new kink in the mix re his date of death... His headstone in St. Michael's says September 18.
- Hmm. I'd consider the headstone's date paramount. It's possible the city was simply without a mayor for those days. If Bear took over on the 21st, maybe they just assumed Moyer's term lasted until then. — admin • talk 16:50, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
The Louisville Journal & Republican quote is, "I assure you gentlemen you have elected a good, strong Democrat."
The Pensacola Journal quote is, "I assure you that you have elected a good, staunch Democrat as your mayor."
