The Week Ahead…. & The Man in the Green Hat’s House Is For Sale

303 17th Street, SE – It’s yours for $649,000.

“George L. Cassiday, Sr. (1892–1967) was one of the leading Congressional bootleggers during National Prohibition. Known as “the man in the green hat,” he sold liquor for ten years to congressmen and senators. In October 1930, he came forward and told his story in six front-page articles in the Washington Post. The articles pointed out Congressional hypocrisy and made the public even more jaded about Prohibition. His admission made both national news and an impact on the midterm Congressional elections just a week later.”  Wikipedia
