Tainted by Suspicion

$19.95 $15.95

The almost-presidencies of Aaron Burr or Al Gore would have created a different world.

Four presidential elections were not decided on election day, but were rather decided by another branch of government. And in three cases, large segments of Americans viewed the president as illegitimately selected rather than legitimately elected.

The infant nation could have been ripped apart in 1800, when the election that began between Adams and Jefferson turned into the Jefferson and Burr.

The old order maintained its final grasp on power against Jacksonian democracy in 1824.

Barely a decade after recovering from the bloody Civil War, the country nearly went to war again over the 1876 contest.

And 2000 saw the Supreme Court essentially decide a deadlocked presidential race.

Tainted by Suspicion provides a White House correspondent’s perspective of contested elections, taking a more reportorial than historical viewpoint, including interviews with leading experts and politicos about the lasting consequences of controversial electoral history.

These experts give the reader insight into what-if scenarios, if the elections turned out differently, as they so easily could have.
