OriginEdit

Fiorello Henry La Guardia (1882 - 1947) was an American politician best known for being the 99th Mayor of New York City for three terms as a Republican. At only five, two he was nicknamed the Little Flower. Despite being Republican he backed Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat, which helped him gain funds for the city. With the money he unified the transit system, helped build low-cost public housing, public playgrounds and parks, airports, reorganized the police force and reestablished employment. La Guardia loathed gangsters who brought a negative stereotype and shame to the Italian community. His first act as mayor was to order the arrest on mob boss Lucky Luciano on whatever charges could be found. In 1934 he went on a search-and-destroy mission looking for mob boss Frank Costello's slot machines. Rounding up around a thousand La Guardia happily smashed each one with a sledgehammer before tossing the remains away.

EffectsEdit
