Title

"Norris Code"

Description

George Norris served in Congress from 1903 until 1943: 1903-1913 in the House of Representatives and 1913 until 1943 in the Senate. Norris identified himself as a progressive Republican. He stands out in history for the collaborations he made across party lines with Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Norris was a stong supporter of Roosevelt and the New Deal. The majority of scholarship on Norris is nothing but praise worthy. That being said it is unclear why the cartoon below has negative and cynical attitude towards Norris as a politician.
