History was made the other day just not as the liberal narrative would lead you to believe. This is the first time in history that a candidate running for President of the United States of America is the subject of an active FBI investigation for multiple felonies. Contrary to what liberals are saying That honor belongs to a beautiful, colorful and convention-defying woman named Victoria Woodhull, who ran for the office in 1872, 136 years before Clinton made her first run in 2008. Woodhull, who died nearly twenty years before Clinton was even born, hazarded a path on which no woman before her had ever dared to tread. Even more amazing is that she did it almost 50 years before the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920 gave women the right to vote. On Election Day, November 5, 1872, Victoria Woodhull couldn’t even vote for herself.
She could not have voted for herself in any case, given the fact that she was incarcerated on Election Day, and for a month or so after, in New York City’s Ludlow Street Jail on obscenity charges. Perhaps history will repeat itself if the DOJ actually does it’s job and prosecutes her for mishandling classified data and then trying to cover it up…
Woodhull ran under the banner of the Equal Rights Party which supported equal rights for women and women’s suffrage. She was nominated in May 1872 in New York City to run against incumbent Republican Ulysses S. Grant and Democrat Horace Greeley. She selected as her running mate Frederick Douglass, former escaped slave-turned-abolitionist writer and speaker. On paper, it was an impressive pick, but not really: Douglass never appeared at the party’s nominating convention, never agreed to run with Woodhull, never participated in the campaign and actually gave stump speeches for Grant. It seems that she too had a problem with honesty just as her modern counterpart.
When Victoria’s ineligibility and lack of votes are added other details of her biography vagabond parents, her three marriages, her work as a child preacher, a fortune teller, a clairvoyant and a spiritualist healer, it’s not surprising that history has reduced her to a curiosity and a footnote. History has characterized her, at best, as a free-thinker and an eccentric; at worst as a scoundrel and a hustler. This is not unlike the current female running for the Oval Office who has a very long list of scandals that range from perjury, murder, theft, corruption and treason.
So dear reader there you have it…Woodhull was the first woman to run for President of the United States of America. If the rule of law is not dead and Obamas’ DOJ actually does it’s job the current female candidate for POTUS will be sitting in a jail cell disqualified for holding the highest office in the land.
