The Golden Age of Jewish Achievement

Dear Editor,

I hope you’re doing well. I’m working with Steven L. Pease on his book, The Golden Age of Jewish Achievement. After looking through your blog, I’d like to offer you a free review copy of Steve’s book. I’ve included some info on the book, as well as on the author, in case you’re interested.

America has been blessed with many waves of immigrants from all over the world, whose contributions have made our nation the most successful in history. According to Steven Peace, succeeding Jewish immigrants’ values have helped build American industries and culture, and our way of life.

But why are Jews disproportionately high achievers? The Golden Age of Jewish Achievement is a tome of Jewish leadership, innovation and hard work over the last 200 years that makes a case that the answer to this question has to do with culture.  In his book, Pease explains how the evolution of Judaism, coupled with a tortured 2,000-year history, has shaped a unique combination of cultural values, which have made Jews into the world’s most successful tribe of smart and successful people.

A turnaround CEO, venture capitalist, and community activist, Steve Pease has traveled much of the world while heading up public and private companies as well as not-for-profit organizations. Born and raised Presbyterian in Spokane, Washington, he is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Washington with a master’s degree from Harvard Business School. He is co-chair of the U.S. Russia Foundation for Economic Advancement and the Rule of Law and active in community affairs in the small wine-country town of Sonoma, California, where he lives with his wife, Joyce.

Transparent and Trustworthy Israel by Scott A. Hill —

Do you honestly surmise that these “journalists” will be neutral, honest commentators with no affiliation to the interests of Israel ? Will they sympathize with the ongoing struggle of the Palestinian people

Transparent and Trustworthy Israel

Now that’s a laugh
by Scott A. Hill, July 01, 2011

How good of Netanyahu to allow journalists to accompany Israeli forces when they intercept the international aid flotilla bound for Gaza in the next few days. This – apparently – is to ensure that “transparent and trustworthy coverage” is widely available to the viewing world. How absurd. Do you honestly surmise that these “journalists” will be neutral, honest commentators with no affiliation to the interests of Israel? Will they sympathize with the ongoing struggle of the Palestinian people? Of course not. They will merely provide a counter to the truth-telling anecdotes of the political activists attempting to provide aid to the suffering Gaza population.

Just days ago, Israeli authorities were threatening that any journalist accompanying the so-called “dangerous provocation” convoy would be banned from entering Israel for 10 years and denied the chance to use whatever footage they gain during the Gaza voyage. However, since these threats were made public, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has distanced himself from any such action stating that “there’s no way to stop the media in this day and age… it is better not to clash with them”. These latest events once again highlight the large propaganda machine at work in Israel.

Following Netanyahu’s comments regarding freedom of the press – or, at the very least, his skewed version of it – it was announced that Israeli media would join any intercepting fleet in order to enable neutral reporting. I guess – in his warped mind – the viewing public would value the opinions of brainwashed Israeli reporters over the tales of a multinational group of peaceful journalists. Then again, perhaps he has a point. After all, following last year’s flotilla raid, western media opted to exclusively show Israeli footage of the deadly attack on civilian activists by Israeli military forces. The event was reported uncritically by the BBC and other such news stations.

Moreover, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has claimed that this latest pro-Palestinian aid mission is “not necessary or useful” stating that Israelis have the “right to defend themselves”. Pardon me? Does she – for even a split second – perceive this aid mission as threatening? What possible harm could basic civilian goods and foodstuffs cause the people of Israel? Why is it that Mrs. Clinton – along with her feeble leader Mr. Obama – care so much about the “suffering” people of Libya yet continue to ignore the plight of the suffering masses in the Gaza Strip?

Western powers were quick to state that, with regards to their “intervention” in Libya, they were following strict UN procedures. How many times did we hear the words “UN” and “resolution” used as some kind of justification for their imperialistic rampage? Yet, when that very same organization describes events in Gaza as “illegal” and “unlawful”, they turn a blind eye. Interestingly, America’s government seems keen to point out laws when it suits it (i.e. Clinton’s “right to defend themselves” nonsense) yet ignore what many countries saw as a blatant “violation of international law” just over a year ago when nine peaceful activists were brutally murdered aboard the Mavi Marmara whilst attempting to distribute humanitarian aid.

The latest – frankly laughable – accusation being spread by senior Israeli officials is that there are “radical elements” within the peaceful flotilla wishing to “spill the blood of Israeli soldiers”. Proof? None whatsoever. On the contrary, the convoy describe themselves as “dedicated to peace” and merely wish to assist a tormented population. Only America is daft enough to believe such Zionist twaddle. In fact, only America will stand by Israel once they have successfully sabotaged this latest humanitarian mission.

The question is, why the contention? During World War II, British planes flew over Berlin – who were by no means considered an ally – and delivered aid parcels to help the suffering people of Germany. When aircraft aid was so widely accepted during warfare over 70 years ago why is flotilla aid condemned so much nowadays? Has humanity sunk to such low levels that we can no longer see beyond our own borders and help distressed populations elsewhere? Regrettably, these latest events have led me to believe that only a one-state solution is the realistic outcome of this incessant predicament.

With America’s failure to support the Palestinian cause and the West’s overall silence on the matter, when Palestine applies for statehood in September, it would not surprise me to find that many nations will bow to strong Israeli pressure and veto the proposal. History will once again prove that it is always the victim who must “compromise.” The famous expression “bullies never prosper” will once again be proven inaccurate and the Palestinian people shall remain oppressed. Silenced. Denied the right to freedom and peace.

When you view the latest flotilla assault on your television screens, please keep in mind the starving, beaten, tortured individuals of the Gaza Strip, for they will not be shown. Instead you will be treated to images of “clashes” and “comings together.” You will hear – before anyone else – the voice of an Israeli official claiming how they were “provoked” into “acting” – as opposed to attacking or murdering – and how Israel was at threat. You might be lucky enough to see some activists being escorted away in Israeli police vehicles. The cameras will be conveniently switched off before the interrogation begins. But silly me, how foolish. Israel is trustworthy. Transparency will of course be top of their agenda.

By Dick Morris And Eileen McGann

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) maintains a list of “specially designated countries” (SDCs) that “have shown a tendency to promote, produce or protect terrorist organizations or their members.” The folks from these nations get special scrutiny when they enter the U.S.

Here’s the list:

West Bank
Saudi Arabia
And so forth.

Israel? Yes Israel is one of the thirty-six SDCs that “promote, produce, or protect” terrorists, according to the Obama Administration. With splendid equality, they manage to list the world’s biggest victim alongside the globe’s leading perpetrators of terrorism. Israelis coming into America get the same high level of scrutiny that Iranians do!

This information, which comes to us courtesy of the wonderful website, is as shocking as it is credible.

That Obama has tried to maintain that there is a moral equilibrium between Israel and the aggressive Arabs that surround it is well known. But to list Israel as a promoter, protector, or producer of terrorism is quite extraordinary.

Doubtless some politically correct soul at ICE or in the State Department felt that the U.S. needed to show impartiality in making up its list and include non-Muslim countries. What better rebuttal to those who would claim that the ICE is profiling Muslims than to say that Israel is also on the list?

But Israel’s inclusion on the list, to say nothing of the indignity inflicted on its citizens as they seek to enter the United States, is an insult and must be corrected at once!

International Jewish Terrorism: Gaza no end in sight to hardship and despair

Gaza: no end in sight to hardship and despair
20-05-2011 Interview
Mathilde De Riedmatten, deputy head of the ICRC’s sub-delegation in Gaza, talks about the situation in the coastal enclave and about how ordinary Gazans manage to carry on with their daily lives.
.How would you describe the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip today?
The ICRC is concerned about the fact that the 1.5 million people in the Strip are unable to live a normal and dignified life. Almost no one can leave the Gaza Strip, not even to go to the West Bank, where many Gazans have family or previously had work.

Health-care facilities are suffering from the restrictions imposed by Israel on the transfer of medical equipment, building materials and many basic items needed for maintenance. Water and sanitation facilities have been under strain for many decades. The fact that they remain even barely in working order is due to the efforts of certain humanitarian organizations. Buildings that have been in need of repair for several years and the many buildings that were destroyed during the Israeli military operation in Gaza in 2008-2009 cannot be repaired or rebuilt as long as basic building materials, such as concrete, are not allowed into the Gaza Strip in meaningful quantities.

Violence claims civilian lives in the Strip on a regular basis. In recent months, many people have been killed or injured in escalating violence and sometimes even in open hostilities. Security incidents in the area between Gaza and Israel frequently result in loss of life or in destruction of property or livelihoods. We deplore the civilian casualties and continue to remind all parties that civilians must be spared the effects of the hostilities. Every feasible precaution must be taken to avoid civilian casualties.

ICRC staff constantly monitor the situation of civilians, such as farmers and rubble collectors, who have no alternative but to live and work in areas close to Israel. The area along the fence extending 300 metres into Gaza has been declared a no-go zone by the Israel Defense Forces. A far bigger area, extending nearly one kilometre into the Gaza Strip, is considered dangerous because of the Israeli military’s incursions and use of live ammunition. Whenever civilians suffer direct harm in such incidents, we document the cases and raise our concerns bilaterally and confidentially with the parties concerned.

Can you tell us more about the economic situation?
Gaza is more dependent than ever on outside aid. For young people – fully 50 per cent of Gaza’s 1.5 million residents are under 18 years of age – there is a crushing lack of prospects, and it is a constant struggle for them to maintain hope in the future.

The strict limits on imports and the almost absolute ban on exports imposed by Israel make economic recovery impossible. The unemployment rate currently stands at nearly 40 per cent. It will remain ruinously high as long as the economy fails to recover. This difficult situation exacerbates the considerable hardship already caused by the collapse of previously prosperous branches of the economy.

Over the years, access to land suitable for agriculture has been eroded by restrictions imposed in the areas near Israel and the levelling of land and destruction of trees by the Israel Defense Forces. To make matters worse, the high price or even total lack of some farm inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, etc., and the lack of export opportunities have weighed heavily on the primary sector. In addition, many fishermen have lost their livelihood as a result of Israel reducing the area at sea within which it allows fishing to three nautical miles from Gaza’s coastline.

Because Israel retains effective control over the Gaza Strip, in particular by maintaining authority over the movement of people and goods, it must fulfil its obligations under the law of occupation and allow the civilian population to lead as normal a life as possible.

Israel eased the closure in June 2010. Has that had a positive effect on the lives of ordinary people in Gaza?
The restriction on the movement of people out of Gaza remains unchanged. The current Israeli permit system, combined with rigorous controls, means that only people in need of medical attention who fulfil strict security criteria are allowed to leave either through the Rafah crossing into Egypt or through the Erez crossing into Israel. Very few other people are allowed out of Gaza.

The entry of goods into Gaza is also still highly restricted, not only in terms of quantity but also in terms of the particular items allowed. Long delays are frequent. Some goods that are allowed in are so expensive that their availability hardly matters to the vast majority of the population, who could never afford them. Although there has been media coverage of the export of certain cash crops such as carnations and strawberries, the actual level of exports from the Gaza Strip remains close to zero. Imports of construction supplies and raw materials are still mostly banned, even though they are vital to the territory’s infrastructure and economic recovery.

Unless there is political change that results in freedom of movement for Gazans, increased imports of a variety of goods and significant exports, there will be no improvement.

How can the ICRC help mitigate the effects of the closure?
To help families make ends meet, we have developed cash-for-work programmes and launched projects that provide farmers with tools and seedlings to improve crop yields.

We are also doing what we can to make sure that injured and sick people receive proper medical attention by providing support for the emergency services of the Ministry of Health and the Palestine Red Crescent Society. The Society provides pre-hospital emergency care and counselling services alongside the many other humanitarian tasks it performs within the Gaza Strip. The ICRC also provides support for the Artificial Limb and Polio Centre, the only facility of its kind in the Gaza Strip, which treated over a thousand patients in 2010.

Our water and sanitation engineers are focusing their efforts on the treatment of wastewater. At a plant that was recently completed in Rafah, some of the treated wastewater can safely seep into and replenish the aquifer, which remains the only source of clean water in the Gaza Strip. Thanks to the latest upgrades at the plant, treated wastewater could soon be used for agricultural purposes such as irrigating trees.

This day in Jewish History, June 21, 1915

John Marshall Slaton, or Jack Slaton, (December 25, 1866 – January 11, 1955) served two non-consecutive terms as the 60th Governor of Georgia.

June 21st 1915

One day before Leo M. Frank is to be hanged by his neck until dead by Sheriff Mangum, the outgoing Georgia Governor John M. Slaton, who also happened to be senior legal partner owner and member in the law firm representing Leo M. Frank, in a gross conflict of interest chose to commute his own clients death sentence to life in prison on June 21st 1915.

Download the 29 page commutation: Leo M. Frank Clemency Decision by John M. Slaton June 21st 1915 in Adobe PDF Format.

To put it into perspective.

Assuming you are a U.S. Citizen, a member of one of the 50 States, the first question to ask is what is your State? (say it out loud… I live in ______ State), The second question, who is your Governor (say it out loud, the Governor of _____ State is _______). Imagine if the Governor of the state you live in (Say his or her name out loud), commuted a convicted murderers death sentence to life in prison, but your Governor also happened to be part owner, as in senior law partner of the Law firm that represented the client who got convicted for strangling a 13 year old girl.

Your Governor is essentially commuting the sentence of one of his or her clients. Now imagine, that the convicted murderer, went through a Coroners Inquest Jury, a Grand Jury, followed by a Trial Jury, and Trial Judge, all giving a guilty decision in their own way, all attempts to have the verdict of the trial set aside, or get a new trial fail, and in total there are 2 years after the trial of judicial review by State, District and Federal Courts, all affirm the guilty decision.

Then the Governor comes along and commutes the sentence of his own client in a gross conflict of interest, does it kinda make sense that people would be outraged to a fevered pitch? or is it just bu$ine$$ and politic$ as usual?

What made it so hard to swallow for the public was that Leo Frank had made a virtual murder confession at his trial on August 18, 1913.

John Marshal Slaton was hanged in effigy as a result of his betrayal of his oath of office.

Slaton was buried in the Grant Mausoleum.

French Holocaust Revisionist Historian Has Doctorate Degree Revoked

What historians are saying about the Roques thesis…

…from now on researchers will have to take his work into account…

—Alain Decaux, member, Académie Française

Had I been a member of the jury, I would probably have given a grade of “Very good” to Mr. Roques’ thesis.

—Michel de Bouard, Institut de France

This is the exposé which shattered the myth of Pope Pius XII’s complicity in the Holocaust, and struck at the very roots of the Holocaust story’s credibility by challenging the “confessions” of SS officer Kurt Gerstein. Author Henri Roques’ doctoral thesis made world headlines in 1986, when for the first time in the history of French academe a duly awarded doctorate was revoked by state fiat.

For the first time, the accusations of Kurt Gerstein—the enigmatic, twisted Third Reich functionary who claimed to have witnessed mass gassings of Jews in 1942—are here subjected to thorough critical review. Roques’ stunning conclusion: not only are Gerstein’s allegations of a mass extermination of Jews and a Roman Catholic cover-up of the slaughter groundless, but postwar academics have deliberately manipulated and falsified key parts of Gerstein’s tortured testimony.

An indispensable resource for scholar and layman alike, The ‘Confessions’ of Kurt Gerstein provides transcripts and translations of an unprecedented six versions of Gerstein’s story, as well as photocopies of the originals; a searching examination of both the authenticity and credibility of the “confessions”; and numerous documents and records which have never before been published. Henri Roques’ thesis is sure to become a classic, not only of meticulous scholarly detective work but of the liberating power of free inquiry in the time-honored Western tradition.

Henri Roques is the first man in the nearly eight-century history of French universities to have his doctorate “revoked” by government order. In 1979, toward the end of his career as an agricultural engineer, Roques, then an amateur in history, was spurred by an intemperate criticism of the work of French Revisionist Robert Faurisson to undertake a critical study of the Gerstein statements and their use in the historiography of the alleged Jewish Holocaust. Roques’ careful thesis, which was awarded high marks and for which he was awarded a doctoral degree by the University of Nantes in 1986, was then cancelled by decree of French education minister Alain Devaquet. Roques, 69 years old, now lives in retirement in a suburb of Paris.

Mary Phagan Kean writes the definitive book on the Leo Frank Case

The Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean, Publisher: New Horizon Press; 1st edition (September 15, 1989).

<<===== You can DOWNLOAD the book, The Murder of Little Mary Phagan, from the upper middle left hand side of the page, by right mouse clicking the mouse pointer over the PDF and then selecting ‘save as’.
The book, ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ authored by Mary Phagan Kean (the great grand niece of Mary Phagan) is probably the most even-handed book written about the subject and its aftermath in the last 100 years.

The book ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ details the most infamously contentious early 20th century rape and strangulation cold case investigation that began at 3:30 AM on April 27, 1913 when the Night Watchman Newt Lee called the police and reported the murder. 56 hours later on April 28, 1913 at 11:30 AM, Leo Frank was arrested, it would be his last day of freedom.

Mary Phagan Kean offers a unique analysis of the 29 day capital murder trial which began on July 28 and led to the August 25, 1913 murder conviction of Leo Max Frank, followed by its affirmation by the presiding Judge Leonard S. Roan on August 26, 1913 and a death sentence prescribed by law.

The book also discusses Leo Frank’s subsequent post-conviction appeals from 1913 to 1915, and his death sentence commutation by the corrupt Governor John M. Slaton on June 21, 1915. Leo Frank would have his throat slashed on July 17, 1915 by a fellow inmate named Creen and on August 16, 1915, Leo Frank was abducted from prison in a military commando style raid by the elite of georgia and lynched at sunrise on August 17, 1913. Nearly 70 years after his lynching, pressure from the ADL of B’nai B’rith and other Jewish organizations resulted in a highly political posthumous pardon without exoneration for Leo Frank in 1986.

Brief Biography of Leo Frank

Leo Frank was born in Cuero (also known as Paris), Texas on April 17, 1884. His family moved 3 months later to Brooklyn, NY, where Frank was raised and educated at local public schools. After doing college prep work at the Pratt Institute, Leo Frank matriculated into the Ivy League Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Leo Frank began studying Mechanical Engineering during his first semester in fall of 1902 and completed his studies in 1906. After graduating in June, 1906, Leo Frank bounced around from job to job, until he visited Atlanta Georgia in 1907 and met wit his rich uncle Moses Frank to discuss a potentially lucrative business venture. After visiting Atlanta Leo Frank made a very serious life decision and decided he wanted to participate in his wealthy uncles venture and go on a sojourn to make it happen. Leo Frank traveled to the German Empire where he studied pencil manufacturing. After his 9 month apprenticeship in Europe, Leo Frank returned to NYC, briefly stopping at his home in Brooklyn to visit his family and then made a permanent move to Atlanta, Georgia, in August, 1908, starting a new life in the Heart of the South.


In 1910, Leo Frank married into a wealthy and established German Jewish family (Selig-Cohen) and became involved with Jewish society and philanthropy, he was elected B’nai B’rith President in 1912. By 1913 Leo Frank had reached the pinnacle of his career at the National Pencil Company, as superintendent, accountant, manager and some would say part owner.


The National Pencil Co. factory was located on 37 to 41 South Forsyth Street, it was there Thirteen year old Mary Phagan, an employee of Leo Frank had begun working in the early Spring of 1912, about a year before her murder. Mary Phagan worked just down the hall from Leo Frank on the 2nd floor where she participated in the final and finishing production stages of the pencil manufacturing process. Mary Phagan worked in the “metal room”, in a section called the tipping department, her job was inserting erasers into the empty brass metal bands that were attached to the end of the pencils.

The metal department, where Mary Phagan worked was adjacent to and contained within it the only bathroom on the floor and also the girls dressing room, the place near where the blood and hair of Mary Phagan would be found on Monday morning at 7AM on April 28, 1913, by early bird employees starting the work week.

Once the word got out about the discovery of real evidence, word traveled fast, employees of the whole factory who were already in emotional hysterics would flock to the metal room, gawking at these unusual blood stains on the floor and the tress of 6 to 8 hairs broken off and stuck on the handle of the lathe machine.

A white powder haskolene was found suspiciously smeared and rubbed into the fresh blood stains on the metal room floor in front of the dressing room, it appeared to be an attempt to cover up the evidence, but the blood bled through the powder turning the red blood stain variations of white, pink and dark blood red. The blood stain also had a star burst pattern that occurs when the back of someones bloody head is dropped on the floor.
The half-baked and half-assed “clean-up job” appeared to be a failed attempt to cover up the blood stains near where the murder victim it was later revealed was accidentally dropped as she was being moved from the scene of the crime down 2 floors to the spot adjacent to the basement furnace.

Little Mary Phagan’s Life:

The work Mary Phagan did at the pencil factory for about 7.5 cents an hour, it was her small way of helping support her five siblings, and widowed mother (who remarried a cotton mill worker named Mr. J. W. Coleman in 1912). Mary’s step father knew Mary quite well for 4 years and he identified the hair found on the lathe machine as belonging to Mary Phagan.

The week before Phagan’s murder, a shortage of brass supplies at the factory had led to a reduction in her work hours and she was temporarily laid off until the material and supplies could be replenished. Her wages for the shortened work week came to $1.20 or just 7.5 cents an hour for the hours she had worked the previous Friday, Saturday and Monday prior to her being murdered on Saturday, April 26, 1913.
On April 26, 1913, a State Holiday, celebrated locally as Confederate Memorial Day, Mary came to the factory to claim her pay before going to see the Confederate parade with some of her friends and neighbor / co-worker George W. Epps at 2pm.

Later in the evening George Epps ran over to Mary Phagan’s home, which was right around the corner, to find out why Mary Phagan never showed up at the designated time. Mary Phagan’s family was already in a state of distress and panic over her being missing, but they also thought she might have gone to stay with a relative. Mary Phagan’s father, Mr. Coleman, had looked for Mary at the Bijou theater, and discovered the Handsome Mr. Darley, Foreman, at the National Pencil Company with another guy, and each one them was with one of the girls from the pencil factory – Mr. Darley was married, but the young girl he was with was not his wife.

April 26, 1913, Noon

When Mary Phagan arrived at the factory at minutes after noon, Marys pay was allegedly issued to her by Leo Frank and according to the pre-trial investigation and later the testimony at the 1913 Trial, Leo Frank was the last person to admit seeing Mary Phagan alive in a virtually empty factory (there were 4 people in the factory at the time of Phagans arrival, when the normal number was more than 100+). It was the reason among others why Leo Frank became a suspect so early on when all things were considered.

George Epps provided troubling testimony to the police, stating that Mary had told him in confidence, that Leo Frank scared her and often made lascivious, inappropriate sexual innuendos and insinuations toward her, that Leo Frank was “after her” in local parlance. George Epps would after the Leo Frank murder trial get kidnapped by Frank cronies, be threatened with violence and forced to recant his testimony by signing a false affidavit under duress. George Epps later signed a true affidavit about the intimate details of his abduction to Alabama and the dishonest trickery that unraveled when he was kidnapped and put under duress to sign a pre-written affidavit.

April 27, 1913

In the early hours of Sunday, April 27, 1913, at around 3:30 AM in the morning, the Negro night watch (“night witch”) Newt Lee made a phone call to the police. Newt Lee found Mary Phagans mangled body on a dirt mound near a furnace in the rear of the basement, with part of her bloody underwear wrapped around her head. Police reported there was evidence she had been dragged from the elevator 140 feet face down, before being dumped next to the furnace, Phagan’s face was scratched up, punctured and covered with filth. The autopsy would reveal she had been hit on the face around the eye with a fist, there was also damage to the back of her head that was likely caused when it hit the handle of the lathe. The underwear of Mary Phagan was torn open, she had been raped, beaten badly and strangled with a 7 foot cord. One doctor testified under oath to several types of specific violence and vaginal damage that occurred, suggesting some kind of rape either penile or by fingers.

Leo Frank

The police after viewing the body of Mary Phagan made several failed attempts at reaching Leo Frank on the phone, after finally reaching him, they went directly to the home of Leo Frank at around 7am in the morning. The detectives arrived at his home, the door was answered by Mrs. Frank, the police asked to speak with Mr. Frank, they requested he accompany them to the factory. Like typical seasoned detectives, without telling Leo Frank what it was about, they observed him, suspicion fell on Leo Frank because he appeared to be extremely nervous, trembling, rubbing his hands, and pale. Police noticed Leo Frank appeared to be badly hung over, bumbling, jimjamming and agitated. Leo Frank also gave overly detailed and meticulous answers on very minor points, his voice was hoarse and he fumbled, butterfingered and struggled with minor tasks like fixing his collar and tie. Moreover, Leo kept saying he hadn’t had breakfast and kept asking for a cup of coffee trying to delay the the process in being taken to the Plant for an emergency. The police asked Leo Frank if he had known who Mary Phagan was and Leo Frank denied knowing a Mary Phagan saying he would need to check the accounting books he managed to be sure.

The Mary Phagan denial would become an important point at the trial, because Mary Phagan had worked for a year on the same floor as Leo Frank, her work station was only a few feet away next to the bathroom, where Leo Frank visited each day more than once. Other employees testified Frank knew Mary on a first name basis, others said the saw him behave in that gray area between politeness and sexual harassment. Mary Phagan had also collected more than 50 pay envelopes from Leo Frank during her 1 year of employment and logged more than an impressive 2,750 hours of work at the factory from Spring 1912 to Monday, April 21, 1913.
Leo Frank flat out got caught in a lie about whether or not he knew Mary Phagan, which damaged his credibility and left people wondering why he was trying to pretend not to know her.

On Sunday, April 27, 1913, Leo Frank said Newt Lee’s time card was punched correctly, but on Monday April 28, 1913, Leo Frank said Newt Lee did not punch his time card at 3 disparate intervals, creating 3 hours of unaccounted for time. Leo Frank told the police to check his body and house, the police found no Marks on his body, and his home and laundry showed no blood stains. When the police searched Newt Lee’s home without a warrant, at the bottom of a laundry barrel they found a bloody shirt. The shirt had blood stains high up on the armpits in the front and back in a way the police immediately thought it was a plant, plus, the shirt was minty clean and did not have the distinctive urine glazed doo-doo brown negro funk on it. It was these three variables the fresh shirt, with oddly placed blood smears and no negro nasty stank ass nigga ass funky smell.
It was as if Leo Frank was trying to implicate Newt Lee, the murder notes “night witch”.

Leo Frank’s last full day of freedom was Monday, April 28, 1913, because on Tuesday April 29, 1913, at 11:30PM Leo Frank was arrested.

After arresting and questioning the black janitor James Jim Conley, who was present at work on the infamous Confederate Saturday, the police eventually cracked James Jim Conley with the 3rd degree and after 3 half-truth affidavits, they finally got James “Jim” Conley to admit he was an accomplice after the fact to the strangulation murder.

James Conley admitted he was asked by Leo Frank to move the body of Mary Phagan to the basement and he ghost wrote four dictated “death notes” (only 2 were discovered) which were scattered next to the head of Mary Phagan once she was dumped in the basement.

The murder notes were a very contrived attempt to make it appear as if Mary Phagan had written the notes after she went to the bathroom and was sexually assaulted there. The notes where clear in their attempt to pin the crime and point guilt to the “long tall slim negro” night watchman Newt Lee (“night witch”). Leaving many people asking themselves whenever in history of the 13 Billion Year Old Cosmos has a black man committed a rape and murder and stuck around to write two (four) murder notes as if they came from the victim in the middle of the rape by night security and then addressing it to her mother describing what happened, “I write while he play”, as if she could write such a letter in the middle of being raped.

The Trial

There was some conflicting testimony about what Leo Frank said concerning a question Mary Phagan asked him at 12:03 PM, “Has the metal come in?”. A Pinkerton detective and defense witness hired by the National Pencil Company contradicted Leo Frank about the answer Mary had given to the question.

The trial would make history, because it would be the first time in the United States of America, where the testimony of two black man (Jim Conley & Newt Lee) would lead to the conviction and death sentence of a white man (Leo Frank) by an all White jury in the white racial consciousness and racially segregated South.

Star Witness Monteen Stover and the (2nd) Leo Frank Murder Confession

Though the Star witness was neither Newt Lee or Jim Conley, but a 14 year old White girl named Monteen Stover who cracked wide open Leo Frank’s alibi. Monteen Stover had come to the factory to collect her pay envelope minutes after Mary Phagan had arrived, but she did not bump into Mary Phagan walking down the stairs and Leo Frank was not in either his inner or outer office, nor was Leo Frank aware that Monteen Stover had arrived and waited for him for five minutes fully between 12:05 to 12:10 PM. Frank would counter the testimony of Monteen Stover stating, he might have “unconsciously” gone to the bathroom during this time. Frank had entrapped himself beyond escape, because the only bathroom on the second floor was located within the metal room, it was the metal room where the murder evidence was found and the prosecution had successfully built a 29 day case that Leo Frank had murdered Mary Phagan there in the metal room between 12:05 and 12:10.

Be sure to read the final closing statements of prosecution team leader Hugh Dorsey and Frank Hooper in American State Trials Volume X 1918 for their unique take on the Leo Frank murder confession. One should also read the really long winded closing arguments of Hugh Dorsey published separately outside of American State Trials Volume X 1918.

Tom Watson

Many would argue the post trial analysis of the Leo Frank murder confession is best articulated by the genius anti-semite Tom Watson in his five booklets on the Leo Frank trial in Watson’s Magazine, January, March, August, September and October of 1915.

Appeals 1913 to 1915

Numerous frivolous, ultra cheesy and half-baked appeal attempts were made by the Leo Frank Legal Defense Team to the Georgia Superior Court, Georgia Supreme Court, US Federal District Court and United States Supreme Court, they were all denied after careful review, with lengthy decisions written and rendered.

Commutation June 21, 1915

The departing Governor of Georgia, John M. Slaton (who also happened to be a senior legal partner in the same law firm which represented Leo Frank), decided to commute the death sentence of his client, Leo Frank, to life in prison on June 21, 1915, just days before the end of his last term as Governor.


The seasoned criminal attorney Tom Watson through his popular Jeffersonian publishing company in 1914 and 1915, mocked Leo Frank calling him a Jewish sodomite and wrote five separate scathing reviews about the Leo Frank Case in January, March, August, September and October of 1915 issues of Watson’s Magazine (These 5 issues are available on They are deliciously sarcastic and filled with energy, seasoned wit and juicy venom.

Shanking July 17, 1915

One month after the commutation of Leo Frank, he had his neck slashed in prison by a fellow violent inmate named Creen, who used a 7 inch butcher knife on Leo’s tender throat. Leo Frank barely survived the attack, the wound was a bit slow to heal in the hot humid summer of 1915.

Almost 2 months later, after Leo Frank received crony clemency, a reduction of his death sentence to life in prison against the wishes of the Jury, a well organized group of about 25 to 35 men, many of which were from Georgia’s highest strata of politics, law and society, organized themselves into the ‘Knights of Mary Phagan’. This newly formed White Immune System Group of Georgia’s elite, sought to fulfill the conviction of the Jury and death sentence judgment preserved and prescribed by Leonard S. Roan. These elite men of the Knights of Mary Phagan wanted to deliver righteous retribution in the form of “Southern Style Vigilante Justice”.
After much careful planning, Leo Frank was kidnapped from the minimum security prison he was housed in the evening of August 16, 1915, driven all through the night and then lynched in the early hours of August 17, 1915, from an oak tree near the town where Mary Phagan had formerly lived.

Post Lynching

Franks dangling body became a public spectacle, photographs were taken and the pictures of Leo Franks lifeless suspended body, gently twirling in the breeze became popular post cards and memorabilia in the South, selling out almost instantly.

Mary Phagan Kean

The book ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ is written by the namesake of the murder victim, Mary Phagan’s great niece named Mary Phagan Kean. When Mary Phagan Kean was a teenager, she discovered her given name was no mere coincidence. When people heard Mary Phagan Kean’s name they started asking her questions about whether she was related to the famous Mary Phagan who had been murdered long ago by Leo Frank on Confederate Memorial Day, Saturday, April 26, 1913. Mary Phagan Kean would learn a startling secret when she asked her family if she was a blood relative connected to the Mary Phagan who was murdered. When her family revealed the truth about her blood relation, Mary Phagan Kean immediately became insatiably curious about the investigation, trial and aftermath. Instantly becoming a life long student of the case, Mary Phagan-Kean has devoted every free moment in her entire life pouring over and painstakingly long volumes of research and documents, reading every surviving document surrounding the torture, rape and strangulation of her great grand aunt, 13 year old Mary Phagan and the biography of Leo Max Frank.

B’nai B’rith

Leo Frank was the President of the 500 member Atlanta Chapter of B’nai B’rith. As a result of the conviction in this national scandal which became a sensational trial, would become the critical mass of “Anti-semitism” catalyzing the formation of two American groups: the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith in October, 1913, or ADL ( for short, and spark the revival of the defunct nativist and ethnic nationalist Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in 1915.

Jewish Scholars which overwhelmingly wrote the lion share of all the written books, articles, web sites, scripts and texts about the subject almost unanimously allege the investigation, trial, and conviction where part of a widespread Antisemitic conspiracy, a text book case of railroading and framing an innocent Jewish Man because of anti-Jewish racism and religious hatred. Frankite books often leave out most of the relevant facts, evidence and testimony in the Leo Frank case spinning the facts convenient to creating doubt about Leo Franks guilt.


Pressure from the powerful and omnipotent Jewish community, Jewish groups and ADL (Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith) with an affidavit from a lonely and senile octogenarian, the former office boy of Leo Frank for 3 weeks in April 1913, a man named Alonzo Mann, resulted in the highly political 1986 Georgian pardon of Leo Frank (without exoneration). There was only one problem, Alonzo Mann was dead and no one could question him. The politically corrupt board forgave Leo Frank, but kept his guilt intact and thus did not disturb the verdict of the Jury.

On March 11, 1986, a pardon without exoneration was issued by the board:

Without attempting to address the question of guilt or innocence, and in recognition of the State’s failure to protect the person of Leo M. Frank and thereby preserve his opportunity for continued legal appeal of his conviction, and in recognition of the State’s failure to bring his killers to justice, and as an effort to heal old wounds, the State Board of Pardons and Paroles, in compliance with its Constitutional and statutory authority, hereby grants to Leo M. Frank a Pardon.

A number of fictionalized media dramatizations have been made about the trial in the form of plays, musicals, miniseries, docudramas, video blogs, songs, treatments and Broadway plays all created by Jews making a mockery of the life of Mary Phagan who is nothing more than a plot antagonist, idealizing and rehabilitating Leo Frank as an innocent Jewish victim of evil Antisemitism. The blood libel against the Leo Frank prosecution continues to this day by the Jewish community, though sometimes it is often couched. The Jewish community won’t dare ever mention the “unconscious” bathroom murder confession Leo Frank made on the witness stand when he was giving his statement at the trial on August 18, 1913, to counter Monteen Stover’s testimony. Leo Frank is the only person in US history to make a virtual murder confession at his own trial. Shocking, but true. See Hugh M. Dorsey, Frank Arthur Hooper and Tom Watson’s interpretation of the Leo Frank murder confession. Also see State’s Exhibit J.

The Biography of Leo Max Frank (April 17, 1884 to August 17, 1915) and the Bludgeoning, Rape and Strangulation of Little Mary Anne Phagan on Saturday, April 26, 1913, Between 12:05 PM and 12:10 PM, Maybe 12:07 PM.

Corporate Standard of the National Pencil Co. Circa 1913

The National Pencil Company (Conceived in the imagination of 1907), born in 1908 and became terminally ill Monday, April 28, 1913, when early-bird employees of the metal room found a tress of what looked like it could be Mary Phagans hair on the handle of the lathe machine and a strange pinkish-red blood stain smeared with white powder haskolene (in a wax on wax off fashion) on the floor in front of the ladies dressing room door, with 107 employees due to work that morning, word about Mary’s death and discovery spread like wild fire, countless dozens of employees would flock to witness the Metal Room spectacle, pre-teens and teenage girls would throw hissy fits and emotional hysterics unraveled, because it was murder evidence leading to the discovery of the real crime scene, the revelation would later be corroborated and described in details by numerous factory employees who became witnesses at the capital murder trial of Leo M. Frank for both the prosecution and defense.

While this major discovery occurred, Leo Frank, Luther Rosser and Herbert Haas were at the police station and Leo Frank was giving the time bomb and fatal State’s Exhibit B to an official detective stenographer capturing the answers and not the questions, much like the 1913 Brief of Evidence. Years later as the estoppelesque appeals unfurled, Mary Phagan’s Mother Mrs. Frances Coleman would sue the National Pencil Company for $10 Grand over the wrongful death of her daughter after the Leo Frank trial ended on August 26, 1913, and hired originally by Sig Montag on behalf of Leo Frank, to “ferret out the real murder”, the famous National Pinkerton Detective Agency sued the National Pencil Company for an unpaid detective bill of about a $1 grand or so. Both cases were won, and would surely be interesting reading.

The National Pencil Company, Destined for Greatness as an International Pencil Company, Imploded Financially and Died a Tragic Fate going bankrupt.

Leo Frank’s wealthy uncle Moses Frank (Moe), who knew Leo Max Frank intimately and hired Leo based on his genuine academic and German Engineering training qualifications, was the angel investor who in part made the National Pencil Company possible, and was no where to be found at the Leo Frank trial, just like Leo Frank’s Father, Rudolph, but allegedly, a very contrived letter was mailed to Moses Frank on April 26, 1913, written by Leo Frank in the time range of the murder meant to show the court Leo Frank’s very “calm and zen like” state of mind, and it was added as evidence at the trial. Moses Frank disappeared into the woodwork and was sure to slip off for the German Empire on a business and pleasure trip with his wife Sarah Frank, thus making it virtually mathematically impossible to subpoena Moe. The outer portion of the letter was never recovered and questions about its unusual contents emerged (Koenigsberg, The Leo Frank Case, Opened or Closed, 2011). Get ready to learn about the most unusual Jewish-Gentile conflict in US history and what it revealed.

Welcome to The Biography of Leo Frank:

The early years…

    Meet the Franks:

The closest family members of Leo Frank clan that is

Papa: Rudolph Frank (1849c. to 1/15/1922), a Jew of North-Central European Ashkenazim roots was born and raised in Germany in the mid 1800’s onward, until he later immigrated into the United States in the latter half of the 19th century circa 1869. Rudolph would make several career changes during his life and live in at least three vastly differing places, German Empire, Brooklyn New York, and Paris Texas. Leo Frank using the eugenics terminology of the era described his father’s absence at his trial because Rudolph had become an “Invalid” (Trial BOE, August, 18, 1913). Rudolph was buried in Mount Carmel Cemetery in Queens, NY at grave site #4 location: 1-E-41-1035-4 to the right of his wife Rachel “Rae” Frank.

Mama: Rachel “Ray” Jacobs Frank (1865c. to 1/1/1925), an Ashkenazim Jew was born of German-Jewish parents living in NYC and she was not only raised in Brooklyn, but spent the vast majority of her life in New York, except for a 3 year stint in Texas, and several months in Georgia for certain during the Frank-Selig wedding, murder trial, some appeals and for other family affairs. She was buried in Mount Carmel Cemetery in Queens, NY at grave site #3 location: 1-E-41-1035-3.

Sister: Marian Frank, Leo’s baby sister by 2 years at about the age of 24 she became Marian Stern in 1910, when she married an Otto Stern in NYC. Marian Frank Stern lived a long life for the period, born in 1886, she died 4/2/1948, and is buried at Mount Carmel Cemetery in grave site: 1-E-41-1035-12. Long lived Otto Stern, her husband, born circa 1880’s died 5/26/1963 and is buried next to Marian at Mount Carmel Cemetery in grave site #11: 1-E-41-1035-11.

Uncle Moe & Aunt Sarah: Moses Frank (1841-1927), Rudolph’s older brother was Moses Frank, Leo’s “rich” uncle who made his money in cotton oil and was the primary angel investor and visionary who made the National Pencil Company possible. Moses was Married to Sarah who died in 8/1/1937 and she is buried at Mount Carmel Cemetery in Queens, NY, at grave site #6 location: 1-E-41-1035-6.

Moses Frank the Confederate Veteran

Steve Oney describes Moe as, “Confederate veteran Moses Frank” (Oney, 2003, p. 10), but despite being over cited without any reliable sources to back it up by Leo Frank partisan writers, Moses Frank never served in the Confederate Army and despite the high survival rate of enlistment documents, there are no records of any kind or any reliable evidence to support that Moses was ever in any U.S. Military, North or South, nor do any of his numerous eulogies make reference to him as a Confederate veteran (Koenigsberg, 2011). The unsubstantiated claim seems to come from Reuben Rose Arnold who on a whim in October 1913 makes a passing mention of Moses as a Confederate veteran in his emotional appeal speech to Judge Leonard S. Roan to get Leo Frank a new trial.

Grave Plot #1 (1-E-41-1035-01): is Empty, it was specifically reserved For Lucille S. Frank when the day of her passing should arrive so she could rest in peace for all eternity next to her beloved husband, however she softly and soundly rejected it with the utmost of subtle politesse that transcended time and space. Lucille S. Frank aka Mrs. Leo Frank specifically requested cremation in her will (Signed: Mrs. Lucille S. Frank, in the Will of Lucille Selig Frank), it was a trifle bit odd and unusual for a Jewess from a prominent Jewish family, but it was also another Verdict given for the Leo Frank trial, but this Jurywoman was the wife who stood by her husband invincibly and faithfully through the whole humiliating ordeal of appearances, posturing and double-think, she had to feign, endure and suffer through from 1913 to 1915, and thereafter a lifetime of the solemn deep pain of feeling betrayed, the stigma, glances and whisperings, it would be 42 years after the lynching when she passed away in 1957.

One can only imagine the real grief of sometimes bitterly reliving the haunting ordeal of trials, conflicts and tribulations. The lynching was in some ways ultimately a catharsis and relief for Lucille, a women who knew in the deepest reaches of her intellect, soul and heart the true guilt of her husband, after all, one can act words and appearances, but beneath the veneer of this clever woman was the truth of weariness and hurt. At the end of her life, the silent ballot of Lucille Selig Frank spoke volumes that are never spoken about by the Frankites, the Jewish community and Leo Frank Partisans

Without a requested cremation Lucille Selig Frank would have been faced with the only proposition of being buried next to her husband Leo Max Frank, and if not her husband, then near her parents and family. If she chooses to be buried next to her parents it creates a posthumous statement.

How did Lucille Solve the Dilemma?

The tradition for Jewish Widows throughout the Jewish ages is to get buried next to their deceased husbands, but if Lucille Selig Frank was not buried next to her husband it would have been a very loud and clear statement, given that the cemetery Grave Plot #1 (left) was specially reserved for Lucille so she could be buried next to her husband Leo Max Frank in Grave Plot #2 (right).

For an intelligent and clever woman like Lucille Selig Frank the public charade of being the loyal, feather brained naive and incensed wife was finally far from over, Lucille Frank chose the untraditional, but appropriate option, cremation, it was the gentle, soft, subtle and velvet hand of politesse, which was meant as a nice way to save the Jewish community the humiliation of her openly choosing not to be buried next to Leo Frank (because Lucille wasn’t insensitive), but it also spoke immense volumes about Lucille Selig Frank’s own final verdict in the Leo Frank trial of 1913, when she died in 1957. The Cremation was also in some ways the ultimate vindication of State’s Exhibit J, given by the Frank-Selig cook and cleaner Minola McKnight, which revealed Leo Frank had made his first murder confession to his wife, when he confessed murdering Mary Phagan in a drunken stupor to Lucille in their private bed chamber on the late evening of Saturday, April 26, 1913 (Minola McKnight, State’s Exhibit J, June 3, 1913).

1881: From Texas to New York City – An Arranged Marriage in the Jewish Enclave of Brooklyn

Step back to the early 1880’s, not at all uncommon during Jewish history and the era, an arranged German Jewish marriage was organized between a much older gentleman (lucky old goat) and a reasonably attractive young Jewess. It was the typical selective breeding program that has been a permanent fixture over the Jewish centuries, the older intelligent gentleman obtaining a young healthy breeder and housewife. In far off Brooklyn, NY, in 1881 Rudolph Frank and Rachel Jacobs married within the Jewish enclave of Brooklyn, NY. Rudolph Frank “robbed the cradle” as they say and was 16 years Rachel Jacob’s senior. After their traditional Brooklyn-Jewish marriage and honeymoon, they made the great voyage returning to Rudolph’s humble abode in Cuero (Paris), Texas, for about the next 3 Years (1881 to 1884).

Ironically in terms of “robbing the cradle”, Twenty Nine Year Old Leo Frank (1884 to 1915) was aout 16 years senior to 13 year old little Mary Anne Phagan (1899 to 1913) when he became the prime suspect of the bludgeoning (12:04), rape and strangulation (12:05 to 12:18) of her on Saturday, April 26, 1913, Confederate Memorial Day, in the metal room on the second floor of the National Pencil Company located at 37 to 41 South Forsyth Street.

“The Perfect Family”

Several years and more after Rudolph Frank and Rachel Jacobs married, they created the proverbial “perfect family” and had two children together, a boy and a girl, in the “perfect order”, first a son named Leonard Maxwell who was born at their Texas residence in 1884, followed by a daughter Marian in Brooklyn, two years thereafter in 1886.

Leo, Rudolph and Rachel Frank, Early Family Life in Texas – 1880’s and onward

Rudolph Frank, had served as the local postmaster in Cuero, Texas (Also known as Paris Texas), and before emigrating from Europe into the United States, he had formerly some training and experience as a physician back in his “ancestral homeland” of Germany, but he unfortunately never completed the course work necessary in medicine to become a fully recognized Doctor. In the United States, he certainly would have had the option of completing his studies, and plugging into the lucrative Doctor Pharmacy matrix after upgrading his training in the US, but he did not go this route and instead became a traveling salesman until he was unable to work any longer.

Brooklyn Native, Rachel (Rae or Ray) Jacobs Frank (a Jew Yorker by birth), traditional for the time, became a young home maker after her marriage to Rudolph, but the young housewife felt like a withering flower once she was physically uprooted and transplanted into the boiling-hot, primitive and rural makeshift town in Paris (Cuero), Texas, after she was replanted far far away from her parents home in throbbing Brooklyn, a once lushly sylvan and green oasis, an eternally urban-suburban hip borough of New York City. For the Jewish gene pool the mega cities of America, like NYC offered the best protection, opportunity and improvement for the Americanized Ashkenazim. It was not just Manhattan, but Brooklyn and all of NYC that often attracted the best of the aggressive, racially conscious, eugenic, agitation, revolutionary Jewish gene pools.

Summer Heat of 1883: The Conception of Leo Frank

One day during the sexual heat of a hot and dry Texas summer in July, 1883, all the biological stars were in alignment, Rudolph and Ray had finally after nearly 2 years of marriage and trying, finally conceived their first child.

It’s Official: Ray Frank is Pregnant 1883

The pregnancy would eventually be affirmed for sure when during the early first trimester Rachel Ray began experiencing all those natural signs of being “prego”, including morning sickness and barfing.

In time Rachel would put her hand on her new bump and in turn it would become for future Moma Ray and Papa Rudolph a glorious, momentous and celebrated moment “unknowing” what was to eventually come, is it a boy or a girl? What do we name our child or who do we name our child after? With a high infant mortality rate back in those days, it was enough to make the newly wed couple nervous, uncertain and excited about their unknown future. Rudolph would have been walking around puffed up and proud-chested, glowing and beaming, the old goat was going to become a father afterall, he was beside himself with joy and praying for a son.

Hurray! It’s a Boy!

They did not know it at the time, because there were no sonograms or other gender determining sciences available, but they were to be eventually surprised at birth.

Nine months after conception, on April 17, 1884, a son was born to a relieved Rudolph. Leo Frank had entered the world in their wooden frame home in the small Texas town known as Paris. The Frank’s humble little abode was located about 100 or so miles from San Antonio, Texas.

Talk of moving away for better opportunities and “greener pastures” began before Leo was born and would intensify immediately thereafter, more importantly the social infrastructure and extended family network was mostly back in mean and green urban Brooklyn, NOT in the bland, droll and drab, tumble weed fields and listless planes of wild west 19th century Texas with a population less than 2 million, the wide little semi Defacto Texas Republic had fields that seemed endless!

It is said, that as hard as it is to believe in an age where every keystroke is recorded, they didn’t have birth certificates back then in Texas at least in that “neck of the woods”.

It’s Time to Pack Our Bags HONEY, We’re Movin’ (BACK) to Brooklyn! O’Thank Heavens! Rachel was tired of slumming it.

The freshly formed Frank clan would follow through with no doubts or hesitations, embarking on an arduous journey, and the three of them would soon emigrate forever from the flat, rural, provincial, yawning and wild cowboyesque Texas, to the hustling and bustling cosmopolitan North East where life was truly lucid and intense. Where one could live deeply and suck the marrow out of the bones of life, as Henry David Thoreau might have quipped about Brooklyn had be been born there.

The best gene pools in the world were created and born within the womb of Brooklyn.

1884 Summer: Rudolph, Rachel and Sweet Baby Leo Frank

A tumultuous turning point for the new Frank family began with the summer of 1884, the complicated move at the time would have taken weeks of careful planning, organizing, and packing, their voyage was unfolding at a time in U.S. history when far-reaching travel was rough and painfully slow, but fortunately patience was plentiful — though trying at times.

The Frank family made the right choice when they decided to relocate from the slow and boring small-town of Cuero, Texas, thousands of miles away, back to the home-town of Rachel, that place of brick, rock and brownstone clad buildings, the living suburb within the periphery of NYC known as the borough of Brooklyn (Kings County). Home Sweet Home, Brooklyn had “better-everything” and it was where everyone would benefit and have more opportunities, but not unlike Texas during certain times during the year, their arrival was at the thickest and sweatiest time during the peak of humid mugginess in the sweltering New York City summer heat.

No words might describe the ecstasy of finally settling in for a bit, sliding in and marinating in a large soothing claw foot bath tub after such a long stinky trip, which had stop overs, random annoyances and delays. It was so nice to have plumbing and toilets with running water vs. the crescent moon carved and shabby phone booth style outhouses of Texas that perpetually stunk to high heaven.

Wow, Brooklyn has electricity and running water without a well, and sewers to boot, what a concept!

Cute little cone headed and round faced baby Leo Frank, who not only looked more like his mother than his father, but he also got her generic good looks too. Sweet baby Leo Frank was barely three months old at the time of this immense pilgrimage and major relocation, he was still suckling nourishing milk from his mothers bosom and it would naturally be a traumatic move for him, but possibly instilling a little bit of that restless spirit in the environmental mix with his diasphoratic DNA genetic heritage, afterall his uncle Moses was a globe trotter himself. That long dramatic journey from one side of the country to the other, would not be his first or last metaphorically speaking and it certainly left a powerful impression upon him in a very abstract way, not unlike his future travels which would be even more dramatic in 1905 and 1907 with two European Trips.

Finally, after settling into NYC, Rudolph Frank took a job as a traveling salesman and Rachel “Ray” resumed her roll as home maker. Two years later and in the chillier NY months, a baby sister had arrived, Marian Frank, was born during a chilly day in 1886 in Brooklyn.

Leo and Marian looked so cute together.

Leo looks like the male version of Rachel Rae-Ray Jacobs Frank as a child, but Franks Eastern European round plate face would narrow and square down a bit, giving him a more oval chiseled athletic handsome-fit-nerd look in his prime of 29.

Education: Public Schools, College Prep at Pratt Institute, Cornell University 1902 to 1906

Frank spent his most formative years growing up in NYC, he was educated at public schools and the prestigious prep school, the creative and artsy-fartsy Pratt Institute of Brooklyn which is still running strong more than 100 years after Leo attended. One can only imagine what a fascinating place Brooklyn must have been like in the decades surrounding the turn of the century as it was going through its own unique development and evolution in its lifecycle.

Leo M. Frank was a star student and matriculated into Cornell University in Ithaca, NY from the Fall of 1902 and studied there until his college graduation ceremony in June of 1906. Frank studied Mechanical Engineering and dabbled in numerous hobbies, sports, and numerous social affairs.

During Frank’s college years at his Alma mater, he engaged in chess, cards, tennis, and played basketball for his class team – Leo Frank was a handsome athlete and scholar who looked a lot like the fictional character Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal) during his college years and he certainly had another side to him too.

During his free time Frank engaged in Jewish fraternal activities and practiced amateur photography. The 1906 Cornell yearbook has Frank listed as a member of the Cornell Society of Mechanical Engineering (CSME). Frank was also a member of the Cornell Congress and the H. Morse Stephens debate team. If Frank’s participation in the multitude that is college and his ability to multi-task were any indication of his potential future, he was destined for greatness, but on the flip side our intuition and instincts tell us there’s also something unusual, even freaky about Leo Frank, some of Leo Franks pictures below and above reveal a real kind of unbalanced “donnie darko” side about him.

Meet: Leo Freak, his Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde alter ego.Something just isn’t right.

A posthumous core drilling of Leo Frank should be conducted to obtain the genetic equation to determine its multifactorial genetics and compare it with other criminals and pedophile men who murder children, and also use multi-factorial super computers to see what gene patterns make one prone to these kinds of psychotic behaviors.

Notice those freaky bulging psychotic serial killer eyes, can you imagine having to stare into those eyes or those winking cockeye’d lazy-eyes making subtle sexual innuendos at you? Would you not be freaked out? He definitely has some serious hormonal imbalance issues (hyperthyroidism?) and possibly physiological problems from excessive consumption, one can only wonder how those imbalances may have affected his mind and propensities from time to time.

However, he also seems to be a good nature’d kind of guy, who had great managerial talents. What we have here is a real Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde, as Dorsey accurately put it (Dorsey, Closing Arguments, August, 1913) – not uncommon in humans.

Employment 1906 to 1913


After college, Frank took a job in the summer of 1906 as a draftsman for the B.F. Sturtevant (Sturdivant) Company in bone chilling and frozen tundra Hyde Park, Massachusetts, 6 months later he returned to New York as the brisk chilly fall turned into a frigid NY winter.


In 1907 Frank began a new job working for the National Meter Company of Brooklyn, NY, as a testing engineer and draftsman for about 10 months. Though Leo M. Frank was Ivy League educated at the haughty Cornell University, the best school of higher education New York has to offer (no offense Columbia), he was unable to connect with any kind of steady job – though not because he lacked talent. Leo Frank was a sharp cookie.

1907, 1908 to 1913, Big Opportunities in the South, briefly in 1907, and five years during 1908 to 1913.

Leo Frank’s wealthy world traveling uncle Moses Frank – Moe, had suggested to Leo M. Frank that he should consider becoming involved in a potentially lucrative opportunity and participate on some level in the management, upkeep and maintenance of a new manufacturing venture, a pencil factory in Atlanta, Georgia, one that Moses had just invested in with some serious shekels. After all, Leo Frank was no slouch, he had an engineering degree and it would be most useful and valuable to have a family member on the team being a potentially serious player. Moses Moe was no slouch either, he made his golden nest egg from cotton oil, and it was time to make another, because well, being on permanent vacation can slowly get very expensive and that’s the honest to God truth. Moses was a vibrant old man, but thought to be blind by 1908 (Koenigsberg,, 2011). Moses was the high-up and undeclared patriarch of sorts for the Frank clan and extended family.

1907 October – Life Changing Event, Atlanta & European Sojourn.

In the middle of October 1907 his uncle Moe – Moses Frank and associates, invited Frank down south to the beautiful burgeoning Atlanta on the brink, it was part pleasure and a family outing, but ultimately a business meeting when all is said and done. What Moses was offering Leo was the opportunity of a lifetime, suggesting that Leo stop working for other people and making them rich, and instead come to work for a newly born family business. Tragically the genius idea of opening a pencil manufacturing plant could have been a shining star or a golden mill, but instead would always be remembered for southerners as the ultimate symbol and collapse of Jewish-Gentile relations in the South, a place located in the blackened heart of Atlanta, Georgia. Defense leader, Luther Rosser in a loud and arrogant basso voice would describe it as a vile hole in his closing argument at the end of the Leo Frank capital murder trial, August 1913.

Frank thought it over, but had that warm tingly feeling of excitement and agreed, after spending 2 weeks getting a little taste of Atlanta, he returned to NYC momentarily and then embarked on a long and bitterly cold Atlantic journey across that dangerous and unforgiving dark-wine Homeric ocean to the country or conglomeration historically known at the time as the “German Empire” — papa Rudolph Frank’s immediate ancestral home land in Europe.

In December 1907 Frank began a 9 month apprenticeship in serious, stern and gruff Germany, to study pencil manufacturing under the tutelage of Eberhard Faber.

Today Eberhard Faber is a name found commonly on pencils, pens and erasers in contemporary and not so far away historical times. Faber built the first U.S. pencil factory in 1861. Faber was the last in a family of lead pencil manufacturers dating back to Kasper Faber, who died in 1784.


In August of 1908 Leo M. Frank returned briefly to NYC to kiss and hug his mom and dad, and give noogies to his sister marian, then he practically ran out and off, he left his home in Brooklyn, New York, and permanently relocated with luggage to Atlanta, Georgia.

After briefly settling in, on the 10th day of August 1908, Frank was given a medium level entry position in the Frank family business, and he embraced it, hitting the ground running. With hard work and dedication, Leo Frank vigorously moved up the time ranks in respect, building trust and a developing a reputation for punctuality and meticulousness. In a matter of new york style energy he shown bright in the South. In time Frank became superintendent, accountant, treasurer and part owner of the National Pencil Company, located in what at the time what was considered the chest pounding heart of Atlanta, Georgia.

In Time, Rising to Superintendent, Accountant, Treasurer and Employee Payer.

When Frank became superintendent of the 37 to 41 S. Forsyth street, National Pencil Company factory, his responsibilities were for purchasing supplies and machinery, accounting, operations, paying off employees and insuring the final production quality exceeded that of competitors. Frank was also made a part time general supervisor of the pencil Lead plant on Bell Street. Frank had a lot of responsibilities, and he worked long hours and his math and science brain were put to good use and as a result his accounting and management skills grew exponentially.

The Creepy Boss with the Rattling Cash Box

Leo Frank was diligently focused on work flow minutiae and efficiency, as a result his upward mobility at the pencil factory was reflective and worthy of him, he worked for nearly five years, reaching the heights of prominence, leadership and responsibility at the apogee of his career while he was in the early age of 29 — just before his arrest, and during this nearly half-decade (August 10th 1908 to Tuesday, April 28th 1913) of service he had developed a general reputation amongst the general public at face value as a good chap with promising potential. His rich uncle Moses, was proud of Leo and saw him as the perfect man to command the helm of the factories on the ground.

In general Leo Frank exhibited all the behaviors you would want in a leader, an early bird, punctual, hard working, obsessive compulsive, good at math and when it came to accounting, paying attention to details, and keeping meticulous books. Leo Frank monitored time cards fanatically and could account for every second of every minute and penny, this is precisely why the business was so successful. From it’s beginnings in 1908, it was a powerhouse by 1913, primarily because of Leo Frank and the occasional dressing down scoldings he received from Sig Montag.

Although Leo Frank was a rockstar at running the show, he had a dark, naughty, perverted, fetishesque and kinky side, the alleged perception of his character amongst a bakers dozen or more of the pre-teen and teenage girls who had labored at the factory, was that Leo Frank was a creepy touchy-feely boss, one whose “claws” came out and Frank got just a wee little bit too close if you know what I mean, but Frank wasn’t always so obvious, he was very subtle sometimes and not always so noticeable in his lecherous deviousness. Naturally given Frank’s position of limelight prominence in the Jewish community, his high leadership position at the factory and his relatively new marriage, all ensured Leo Frank was reminded he had to have some semblance of stealthiness, he wasn’t a dummy after all, and he knew on some level consciously and unconsciously he had to try to maintain some measure of self-control and fertiveness for his friskiness.

Population and Labor Surge There was an over abundance of child labor available in Atlanta at the time, and no shortage of naive farmgirls who sought a better life in the “fast” urban Southern city away from the droll existence on the “slow” rural fields. The lean muscle rail thin bespectacled handsome nerd, known as Leo Frank was always making couched sexual propositions to a careful selection of his pre-teen and teenage girls working at the factory, they claimed Frank made “implied” innuendos, naughty suggestions, lecherous stares, was openly caught sometimes leering at them in the dressing room, at times winking and got a little bit too familiar at times with some of the girls. There were other allegations too besides aggressive sexual harassment (lasciviousness), that the factory was also being used as a rendezvous for in-call and out-call prostitution under the winking eye of Leo Frank. There were after work during the work week and Saturday Dionysian stress relief parties involving booty, bubbles and beer. The gloomy poorly lit basement was one of the kinky places couples were allowed to rendezvous. In general the factory could be interpreted as becoming the work hard and play hard fiefdom for Lord Leo Frank in a roundabout way, but really he was just trying to blow off some steam and it got way out of hand. Even Darley another married man was seen with a young girl at the movies on Confederate Memorial Day (Koenigsberg, 2011). Wall to Wall, Row to Row, Column to Column The jammed rows of fire hazard humping and pumping brothels were just around the corner from the Pencil factory and at the time bursting at the seams with child prostitutes, teenage hookers and fresh street meat. Not so ironically, the National Pencil Company factory was once a bed bug ridden sweaty hotel where grandpa dirties and horn dog men of all ages for that matter, could get their rocks off on the side and bring home STD’s to their unfortunate and unsuspecting house-Frau wives at home. The bordellos were filled with poor, naive and worn out farm girls and child laborers who had been ground down in the slave pits of the malicious “meat grinding” mills and ferociously filthy factories for just pennies an hour, and many finally got turned out for dollars at a time once they realized they could make a weeks wages in a single day of turning tricks. Like all things in life and in the universal cosmos, there are circles, ups-n-downs and waves. Farming was no different, it was periodical, during drought, dry sales and down cycles the cities would be flooded with farm girls and boys looking for any work and wages available. Child Prostitution was an unfortunate part of a city surging in population, where severe poverty was rife, and the testosterone-fueled supply and demands in every possible direction where high. Though on its best day, Atlanta didn’t have even a fraction of the numerical whoring available as NYC did at the time, but pound for pound, Atlanta had more. Rattle the Money Box, How About it? In a slap stick kinda way, Frank was also allegedly often making inappropriate sexual innuendos with the cash box in his office, sitting in his swivel chair, with his long skinny boney looking legs spread like a wishbone, slapping his knees, rattling the swollen cash box on the table, smirking, grinning, winking and saying how bout it? Though sexual harassment was no stranger to women in the history of female labor, it was often the biggest complaint in the factories, mills and industrial sweatshops of the time. The number of pre-teen and teenaged girls sexually molested and raped in these horrendous environments are uncountable. The temptation was always there on both sides and turning out girls was a game that today is called today in urban areas, “the crown and the jewels”. It’s a game that has existed and been played in and played out over and over all throughout history, when young naive girls were forced to come into contact and work in the testosterone surging mans world which is why wine, women, whiskey, hormones and testosterone came into play in every direction in three dimensionally. Leo Frank’s Character for Lasciviousness was Bad Frank’s character would be described by more than thirteen of the girls and other factory workers, who would testify against him, saying Frank was, what amounted to a lascivious (sexually aggressive) pedophile and some suggested a frequent dabbler in whoring. Though the words pedophile, whoring and whore monger did not exist at the time, these kinds of descriptions were vividly implied, because more than a bakers dozen employees and former employees of the National Pencil Company made very specific allegations and claims during the Leo Frank trial (July 28 to August 25, 26 1913), even more affidavits supporting these notions would emerge after the trial between 1913 and 1915. Indeed, after the trial, Dorsey to counter the claims of the defense that the accusations were false went ahead and secured more affidavits supporting Frank’s pedophile and naughty-naughty tendencies, including one about a young girl that got knocked up by Frank and revealed a very kinky-sexually-aggressive side of Leo Frank. Leo Frank was into Bruise Biting Apparently Frank was into sadist teeth to flesh sexual foreplay, leaving teeth marks and bruises on a little teenage girl he had turned out. Perhaps, the young degenerates DNA has lived on after all, not through his bloated dumpy infertile wife who couldn’t conceive after 3 years of manual procreation, but the sweet young naive lass he debauched at the factory. At Least Ten to One Ratio: People attesting to Leo Frank’s Good Character vs. Bad Character for Lasciviousness Though there were just as many, if not more, a lot more people that came forward to say Frank was not a horny and frisky licentious boss with wood in his pants, taking advantage of his position and power – the quantity numbers game could not save Frank in this situation, because of the “quality” and closeness of those speaking out against him. Pedophile, Like accusing people of Racism: Guilty Until Proven Innocent The accusation people use today when they want to destroy, smear and defame you is to call you a racist or antisemite, or pedophile. It’s a sad reality, but in a situation where a girl claims naughty overtures by the bossman, or any man for that matter, he is almost certainly and always socially considered guilty before innocent. How Many Witnesses Corroborated Leo Frank’s Naughty Tendencies? Dorsey put the number at 19 verifiers in his closing arguments (Dorsey, August 1913) making it somewhat virtually impossible to counter that the lascivious tendencies were not true – no matter how many character witnesses Leo Frank “bussed down” from New York. The claims of some of his female employees essentially amounted to pouring a cup of hemlock on his murder trial and poisoning it. Leo Frank was not on trial for pedophilia, adultery, sexual harassment or whoring. The Leo Frank Defense Team would argue that bringing up Frank’s pedophilia and whoring rampages had no place at the trial, because Frank was not on trial to determine if he was a sexual predator, however, the prosecution brought it up only after the defense made the blunder of bringing up Leo Frank’s character. The rule at the time is that you couldn’t challenge the honor of ones character, until the defense brought it up first and they did – big mistake. Once the defense gave the green light, Frank’s lascivious and licentious character became an issue by the prosecution to show Frank’s propensities and tendencies for sexual aggression and whoring as a probable segway or gateway for the theory of why he murdered Phagan and it helped the prosecution build their case. It wiped out over 100 character witnesses Leo Frank had bussed down from the North East, including teachers, and associates from the Pratt Institute of Brooklyn and the uppity Cornell University. It became odd and alien that Frank had to bus in truck loads of Northerners, because the Jury would naturally wonder why can’t Frank, who lived in the south for 5 years, be unable to bring in more local support, people who are from Atlanta and the surrounding area. After all, 5 years in Atlanta is a long time and Frank’s local showing was average at best. In Lucille’s July 17, 1909 picture with Leo Frank, Lucy looked her best.

When the Big Boned Lucy was Attractive: July 17th 1909, 6 years later Leo’s Throat Would Be Slashed 1910 – Marriage of Mr. Leo Max Frank (1884 to 1915) Marries Miss Lucille Selig (1888-1957). Meet the Seligs: Daughter, Lucille Cohen, Mama, Josephine Cohen, and Papa, Emil Earlier in 1910, Leo’s baby sister Marian Frank, became Marian Stern after she had married Otto Stern in NYC, and Frank being older by a couple of years felt the half-joking half-serious social pressures at the time and knew he was overdue to marry. Frank was fortunately introduced to Lucille Selig after he had arrived. Once Leo Frank settled in and took permanent residence in Atlanta August of 1908, he began dating Lucy very seriously in 1909, though they had corresponded before they met in person. Lucille Selig came from a prominent and wealthy Jewish family of industrialists who two generations earlier had founded the first synagogue in Atlanta. The Selig-Franks lived in a Grand Home. A Match Made in Heaven: Emil and Josephine Both born on the same month and day: Lucille’s father Emil Selig (Jun. 10, 1849 – Mar. 30, 1914) was a salesman for the West Disinfecting Co., a maker of soaps and supplies, before that, he was a liquor salesman. Son of Samsohn Seelig & Sara Loeb. Emil was buried in Oakland cemetery Jewish Section, Block 279, Lot 58, Grave 3. Mrs. Josephine Loeb-Cohen Selig (Jun. 10, 1862 – Jan. 27, 1933), was a home maker and her daughter Lucille Selig would often help out when they weren’t lounging about, playing cards, socializing with their sowing-circle of cackling Jewish housewives and gossiping yentas. Magnolia McKnight (Minola) was their personal cook, who also did light cleaning and laundry. Josephine and her daughter(s) lived the good life, the simple life, the pampered patrician life, by comparison to the toiling local crackers as they were called in local parlance (Oney, 2003) as some were light and flakey . Lucy’s (Lucille) zaftig figure and swelling belt line showed that there was no shortage of downright good ole fashioned “house negro” cooked food made by their skinny high yellow “black mammy”, Minola (Magnolia McKnight) as they affectionately called her. Josephine was buried a Oakland Cemetery, in Jewish Section, Block 279, Lot 58, Grave 2. Josephine’s parents were Jonas Loeb Cohen (1823 – 1885) and Regina Abraham Cohen (1839 – 1918). The Odd Couple “Opposites Attract”: Mr. Leo Frank and Miss Lucille Selig An Engagement and Prelude to a Marriage Destined to Fail: The colloquial that “opposites attract” tends to apply more to short term relationships and temporary lust, than anything else. Therefore the cliche “opposites attract” is a misnomer to the highest in the bigger picture of time and space. Every learned psychologist will tell you that studies show those kinds of relationships can tend to be very problematic, unstable, divisive and often don’t work out in the long run, but back then it “didn’t matter” marriage was for the most part a life long venture and people learned how to “suck it up”, not like today where 50%+ of people divorce over the pettiest of squabbles. It also helped that life expectancies in the early 20th century were decades shorter than what they are today. The marriage of Leo and Lucille, was sadly like too many marriages, eventually destined to fail even if they would have most definitely remained together till the end, which didn’t really matter for Leo Frank as there was an infinite supply of side action on the sly. Leo Frank was very much a total opposite of sorts compared to Lucile, and they had more serious differences than things in common. The marriage between them appears to be more political than anything else and based on some of the things that would come out about what Frank was doing on the down low, their marriage could not be described as happy by any stretch of the imagination, except on the surface for appearances, but definitely not under the Jewish Royal Marriage veneer.

Meet the Bride: Lucile Loeb-Cohen Selig Lucille Selig Frank (February 29, 1888 – April 23, 1957) was very much different from Leo Max Frank (1884 – 1915). Lucille “Lucy” Selig was a “red boned” big thick girl, “chunky, but funky” in Jewish frat boy language, Lucy was part of the highly assimilated Jewish community of Georgia and very much Southern and sassy, moreover, irregardless of being from a well-to-do and prominent family, she was very much provincial compared to Leo. In fact as any born and raised New Yorker will tell you (which Leo Frank “essentially” was), everyone outside of NYC is provincial. Despite being intelligent with a sharp and witty tongue, Lucy’s highest educational level ended at high school, though she was well read and could still hold her own – she was a strong loyal woman to the core.
Leo Frank was a lean, mean, whoring machine, and super slim with that “0% body fat” look. Frank was no doubt a high testosterone, heavy drinker, chain smoker, partier and fit to fuck after years of tennis and basketball at his Alma Matter. Frank was very cosmopolitan, well traveled, could speak basic German, and as for Hebrew and Yiddish, as a Jew Yorker, those dialects came as part of the natural ethnic enclave culture of Jewish Brooklyn, and to top it all off, Frank rightfully was a bit of an educated snob, the Ivy Leaguer of privilege had the opportunity to study at one of the 7 best schools in the United States and then afterward take an educational “sabbatical”, experiencing being trained overseas in the cold, gruff, serious and no-nonsense Germany, these things were part of what made Leo Frank a cut above the rest.
After the odd-couple married, the big boned Lucille packed on the stereotypical post-marriage stones, her weight slowly swelled up like a hog slow-dining and soothingly grazing at a voluptuous landfill, though she was an extra thick woman that held her weight really well, it still left her looking frog necked, androgynous (like the fictional character “Pat” from the comedy show Saturday Night Live) and dumpy – as the unflattering evolution of her photos clearly shows before and during the Leo Frank affair. Hillary Clinton Will Tell You Some Women Should Not Have Short Hair Lucille’s masculine short-butch bull-dyke haircut like her weight issues didn’t help her either, but anyway you slice it or dice it, Leo Frank got bored with Lucy faster than a new york minute – “specially” when the factory was flooded with hard body pre-teen and teenage former-farm-girls blossoming much faster than their female peer counterparts – the teen girl laborers matured years ahead of their time and were nothing like the girls who came from middle class families who could ensure their daughters wouldn’t have to give up school to work in the “meat grinding” mills. The thoughts Frank had of mounting that swelling provincial cow he married gave him the visual notion of a mosquito trying to puncture and drill into a beached walrus. And naturally the fit and skinny Leo Frank took to his past time of buffet whoring more vigorously, when he got tired of hogging, with his “big fat wife” – as he called Lucille behind her back (Jim Conley, 1913).
Steve Oney put’s Leo Frank at 5’6″ (Oney, 2003), but Frank’s passport application puts him at 5’8″. Despite being only 5’7″ and 135 lbs. Frank could hang with the best of them, no pun intended, his liver was clad in iron, well trained and seasoned from years of Jewish Frat parties at college and he certainly enjoyed the unlicensed “speakeasies” and underground poker halls of NYC, not to mention swilling the exquisite beer and booze of Germania during his 9 month stint, moreover, as a whoring aficionado, Frank certainly delighted in sampling some of Germanias Aryan whores in the half-underground half-above ground red light district there too. Frank proudly earned his International whoring wings in his fathers, “homeland” of Germania, to crown off his whoring escapades in New York City and eventually his main-staple bordelloing headquarters that would call itself home in Atlanta, Georgia. Frank loved to bogart cigarettes and puff his tabacky pipe, and to wash it all down he guzzled coffee by the pot during his work days and when the sun had already set and the hands of the big ole clock in his office stuck seven, inaugurating the evening, it was time to wind down with beer, whiskey, wine, and women, to top off the long stressful days. It was all a phone call away.
Nina Formby A simple phone call to the mischievous and twinkle in her eye Nina Formby, Leo Frank’s favorite mamasan who worked down the street in the area of Atlanta that was jam packed wall to wall with young meat child brothels, could send order take out delivery directly to his office for mere dollars. Frank loved to sample and dabble in the endless experienced or fresh meat that was constantly churning, burning, humping, pumping and grinding through the “blink and look the other way” Atlanta Red Light District. Frank had some major hormone issues and mental imbalances, its not clear if it was genetic or from excessive consumption (too much substance abuse), or both, however you can tell he had these problems at times, by the numerous pictures of him looking like a psychotic serial killer with his out of orbit big buggy bulging scary creepy erie freaky eyes which seem to swallow you and even sparkle like black diamonds as Jim Conley described (BOE, James Conley, August, 1913). At times Leo’s eyes appeared hyperthyroid (graves disease?), which might be more revealing about his physiology, psychology and personality than meets the eyes (no pun intended). Barring Leo Franks Flaws ASIDE from Franks sneaky-creepy-freaky lascivious behavior against his pre-teen and teenage girl employees, after work and weekend drunken debauchery, swings of mentally and hormonally imbalanced states – Frank was exactly the kind of guy you wanted to run your factory, because barring his flaws, he was work-hard-play-hard, early to work and late to get home (not always late to get home because of work, though it offered a good excuse). What also made Leo Frank, really valuable is that he kept obsessive-compulsive detailed records, books, and he monitored employee time cards religiously and fanatically. He was a human calculator and time clock after nearly 5 years of brute force calculating at the factory. Frank could be relied on as he was always punctual, but at a salary of $150 a month, even if he dipped into in the company coffers to finance his bingeing and whoring rampages, it was meticulously un-noticed and the embezzlement didn’t raise any suspicions or eye brows of Moses Frank or Sig Montag. The surviving records and invoices of the National Pencil Company, show money was flowing in like it was going out of style, money in and pencil stock out, the numbers were growing fast and furiously at the factory bank account, sales reports showed they were sometimes churning out $2,500+ to $5,000+ a week in gross orders, not bad by 1913 standards. Aside from a little frisky-frisky and naughty-naughty on the side during occasional evenings and weekends that might put Leo Frank’s reputation at risk, Frank was mostly liked by his employees and he held the company together for the most part given it’s zillion complicated variables that had to be managed and juggled. Franks creepy innuendos towards his employees never became an issue, because the girls that got creeped-out would move on, the ones turned out ended up at the brothels and the ones that tolerated it and stayed would put up with it begrudgingly and stoically. The official record has numerous laborer girls who became former employees, and if you think about, it didn’t matter as there was an infinite supply of new young meat that needed a job. Had Frank not gone off the edge on April 26, 1913, the National Pencil Factory would probably today be remembered as a shimmering icon of industrious glowing Southern Jewish history. Instead, the factory is remembered by Southerners as a vile sweatshop and bastion of pedophilia where little mill girls got tested and some of them turned out. For the Jewish community the factory is remembered as a mini Jewish Holocaust, by a people bent on its own exaggerated victim hood and obsessed with perfidious narcissism against perceived “out groups”, if only they had saved the western wall of the pencil factory before it got demolished, it would have become a spiritual shrine, a Southern wailing wall part 2, for Jews to bob, undulate and weave, to release all of the pain and suffering through prayer the Jewish people have had to endure, all dramatized by an egomaniac people who love to celebrate their own metaphorical “sadomasochistic” instigated persecution. A Marriage of Politics Leo Frank engaged in a highly political matrimony, marrying into a prominent Jewish family, one who generations earlier had founded the first synagogue in Georgia. Leo and Lucille were married by Rabbi David Marx on November 30, 1910 in a borderline-gouache pink wedding ceremony at their in-laws gaudy and dated McMansion.
Meet Rabbi David Marx, More than a Rabbi, he was the Catalyst and Lead Activist of Leo Frank’s Emotional Exoneration Movement The prominent Dr. David Marx was the Rabbi of the Hebrew Benevolent Congregation, a popular Jewish reform synagogue of the highly assimilated Jewish community of the South, he had presided over the momentous event. Atlanta at the time had the largest Jewish community in the south with several thousand Jewish families who were all highly assimilated and active in Jewish life.

A More Detailed and Insiders Version of the Marriage Event The wedding was held at 68 East Georgia Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia, the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. Emil Selig and Mrs. Josephine Loeb-Cohen Selig. Rabbi David Marx performed the ceremony and members of Hebrew Benevolent Congregation attended before a small gathering of family and close friends. The Athens Banner described the evening as “a pretty event,” noting that “the house was artistic with quantities of smilax and vases of pink carnations in all the rooms.” The paper reported that “Miss Michael sang several beautiful selections of songs before the ceremony and was accompanied by Miss Regina Silverman, who also played the wedding march.” … The two young women also wore pink, with Helen Michael in “a white lingerie gown over pink silk” and Regina Silverman in “a pink chiffon cloth gown over silk, trimmed with lace and black marabou. Other out-of-town attendants at the wedding included the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Frank of Brooklyn, New York, and the best man, Mr. Milton Rice of Rochester, New York. The paper stated the couple would “spend several weeks at the Piedmont before going north for a wedding trip.” After their honeymoon, Lucille and Leo settled in with their in laws the Cohen-Seligs, at 68 East Georgia Avenue, the place of their pink-overload marriage. Lucille and Leo Frank became active members of Jewish Society. Frank a highly secure, confident, active man with poise, had the highest honor bestowed upon him, he was elected B’nai B’rith president the largest Lodge in the South, over 500 members strong. It made sense that Leo Frank was elected as president of B’nai B’rith, as no average,shivering, insecure and nervous man would ever be elected to such an important position. Frank was a man who beamed with inner confidence and strength, he was the confident superintendent of the National Pencil Factory, he was married into a prominent Jewish family, he was active in Jewish Society and Philanthropy, so naturally he was a perfect leader for the powerful and influential B’nai B’rith.

Noon, April 26th 1913 In a shuttered factory on Confederate Memorial Day, Saturday, April 26, 1913, Leo Frank was wrapping up some last minute paperwork before intending to do some light afternoon whoring and then call it a day to go to see a baseball game with his brother in law. However, things took a wrong turn. Thirteen year old Mary Phagan came in to the factory to receive her pittance of pay, $1.20 from a previously shortened week that ended the Monday before on April 21st 1913. Phagan was one of Leo Frank’s child laborers at the factory, she was cute, with lovely blue eyes and very well developed for her age, she had been laid off the previous Monday because supplies of brass ran out. The brass was processed, formed into bands around the ends of pencils and used to hold erasers to the pencils, and when the brass had intermittently ran out, some of the 4 girls in the metal room had to be temporarily laid off. Phagan worked in the metal room’s tipping department, inserting erasers into the metal bands of the erasers, and because metal had run out, she was laid off until the supplies which acted as a “dependency” were replenished. Dorsey Called it a Species of Coercion Frank allegedly lured Mary Phagan just down the hall from his second floor office into the metal room, which was where Phagan had toiled endlessly for the last year at her workstation. It was theorized based on the testimony of Jim Conley and circumstantial evidence, that Frank convinced Phagan to follow him to the metal room on the false pretense of seeing if the brass metal supplies had arrived or not, and thus determining whether or not Phagan would have her job back on the following Monday morning. Once alone inside the metal room with Phagan, Frank quietly closed the door shut and securely locked it, and according to Hugh M. Dorsey in his closing remarks, Leo Frank, using Phagan’s laid-off, half-unemployed status and potential job prospects on Monday, April 28, 1913, as a species of coercion and manipulation (Dorsey, August 1913), Frank bluntly demanded sex from Mary Phagan, that is, if she wanted her job back, but when Phagan resisted him and tried to escape, Leo Frank grabbed her, bludgeoned her by pounding her in the face with his angry fist, he lifted her up and slammed her (Conley, 1913) against the handle of the lathe, where her hair broke off and was spotted by an employee Barret et al, Monday morning, August 28th 1913, and affirmed by numerous other employees who knew Phagan after they too saw it. Frank then allegedly dragged Phagan into the bathroom of the metal room while she was unconscious, lifted her skirt up, ripped or cut open her underwear and raped her 13 year old virgin vagina, rupturing her hymen and leaving her tornup underwear bloodied according to the physical evidence retrieved from Phagan by the Undertaker and presented at the trial (BOE, 1913). Frank then allegedly grabbed a nearby cord used to tie the boxes of pencils and garroted Phagans tender throat until she suffocated and died of brain damage. A follow-up clean-up job ensued, once Leo regained his composure. Mary Phagan’s strangulation became a national scandal once its discovery hit the media’s press machines and it became a cause celeb for the Jewish community which feared being disgraced because a high profile member of their tribal community might have committed such a disgraceful act and heinous crime against one of the host populations children. According to Leo Frank’s own statements and behaviors which some say collectively amounted to virtual admissions on: April 27, April 28 (See State’s Exhibit B in the Brief of Evidence 1913), April 30, and August 18th (see the unconscious bathroom segway confession), the beating, pedophile-rape and child-murder of Mary Phagan, occurred between “12:05 to 12:10, maybe 12:07” or possibly “12:10 and 12:15”, and with the absolute time range basically being 12:03 to 12:15. Though we will never know for sure, until the invention of a time machine or an identical simulation or our universe comes out near the end of this century, can’t wait to see the previews. Murderer? To be fair, Frank might not have had premeditated murder in his heart when his ulterior motives inspired tricking Phagan to go back with him into the metal room to see if the supplies had come in, but in his overpowering attempt to turn her out, he knew unconsciously he had no choice but to permanently silence Phagan, because if Phagan had reported that he violently forced himself on her, rape or not (rape-escape), the consequences would have been severe. White people back then did not tolerate the shit that goes on today, it was well known in those days when white people weren’t deracinated from their racial consciousness, their was the risk of mob vigilante justice, which at times included castration with rusty tools without anesthesia, followed by lynching for rapists or attempted rapists, and even if Frank did not hypothetically end in that fate because of his influence and access to other peoples wealth, he knew either way his career, reputation, the factory and marriage would have been permanently ruined if it was found out. Mary Phagan’s last breath was around 12:05 +/-. After Leo Frank murdered Mary Phagan. Based on interpretations and recollections of Jim Conley (Connolly) Statements:
Frank asked his roustabout, lackey and watchdog Negro custodian, Jim (James) Conley (also spelled Connolly depending on the source), to dump the body of Phagan in the rear of the basement in front of an over sized large furnace, with the unspoken intention of later asking Connolly to stuff Mary Phagan in the oven to cremate her. When Frank and Connolly went back to Leo’s second floor office, Frank allegedly asked Connolly to ghost write unheard-of and never before created murder notes, as if they were actually being written by Mary Phagan while she was in the middle of being raped and killed by the Nightwatchman, an honest Negro employee who had not arrived to work yet, but would be at the factory in the late afternoon to begin his security guard rounds.
Blame it on the Night Watchman Newt Lee (The Night Witch) The contrived murder notes evolved the Mary Phagan cold case into one of the most shocking and embarrassingly botched attempts in U.S. history, by a person trying to third-party frame and railroad the violently heinous rape and murder on an innocent Negro (Negro is the term they used back then to describe Afro Americans), Leo Frank’s graveyard shift employee, an African American named Newt Lee, who was setup to be the fall guy and scapegoat for Phagan’s murder (according to Jim Conley). Later at the trial, Newt Lee, who had been working at the factory as the nightwatchman for 3 weeks, would have some very interesting sworn testimony to provide about Leo M. Frank’s unusual behavior on that infamous day of April 26 1913. It was testimony that even Leo Frank would not fully counter or explain away during his August 18, 1913 trial testimony. Newt Lee also told the police that the factory was being used by couples to have evening trysts. Down payment of a Half Pack of Cigarettes, Two Paper Dollars and Two Silver Quarters, $200 promised Frank allegedly offered a $200 payment, took it away when Conley was resistant and then offered it again, but as a potential post-payment if Jim Conley or Connolly would go downstairs stuff the dead little girl into the giant cellar oven and burn the evidence, but Connolly was leery and hesitant, saying he would only do it if Frank helped. For some reason Frank wanted Connolly to do it by himself and would not help him. Frank told Conley that if he didn’t get caught and if Connolly would do the job, he would pay him the money during the week. Frank gave Connolly a small down payment of cash and smokes,telling him to light up, but Jim Conley later left the factory with the $2.50 and a half-pack of cigarettes, that Frank had given him as a small down payment on the $200 bribe offering, without doing the final dirty work. Frank sternly, firmly and directly ordered Jim Conley to come back later and finish the clean up job, including specific hints that Jim Conley must finish the makeshift crematorium work of burning Phagans body if he wanted to get the $200 at a later time. Jim Conley didn’t accept or reject the job, but got spooked, left the factory after Leo Frank left and went drinking across the street before going Home and falling asleep – not waking up until mid day Sunday. Had Jim Conley done what Leo Frank had told him to do, this article might not exist today. Based on different accounts, Frank left the factory to go home for a late lunch between 1:10 and 1:20, arriving at his home at about 1:30, he was nauseous and lost his appetite, stayed for about 10 minutes, didn’t eat anything and then left to go back into town. Frank silently prayed to himself, hoping that Jim Conley was doing the erasure of evidence deed. Jim Conley never came back, can you blame him? Frank Had the Worst Case of Butterflies in his Stomach Leo Frank returned to the factory after his late low calorie “lunch” of allegedly eating nothing and his stomach was twisting in knots. Frank waited around desperately for Jim Conley to return promptly, on the promise of $200 in Greenbacks, that is if Jim would incinerate the body, but when Jim Conley never came back that late afternoon, Frank was Freaking out and became nauseously terrified and more nervous, agitated, frenetic and excited then ever, and in a last pitched act of desperation, Frank snatched the contrived murder notes he had dictated to Jim Conley he had him scrawl up earlier, and scattered them next to Phagan’s body in the gloom of the basement. It is not clear, why Frank did not attempt to stuff the bloody body of Phagan into the oven himself and attempt to destroy the evidence. Although Phagan was a low chunky girl at 4’11” she easily weighed 115 to 120lbs, almost as much as Leo Frank at 5’8″ and 135lbs and the dirt floor basement was absolutely filthy, covered wall to wall in black charred soot and cinders. Frank being a bit of a premadonna was smart and cautiously would have avoided getting unnecessarily dirty and stain himself up with filth and possibly blood in a way he could not explain away when he went home to his big fat wife (as he described his own wife). Had skinny Leo Frank tried to stuff that heavy little girl in the oven, A sarcastic moment… Lucille might say: Honey, why does your handsome suit have some blood and soot stains all over it? Frank might reply: Oh, I don’t know pumpkin, just a busy day on the job at the quiet office on this State holiday violently raping little girls and then strangling them off for good measure so they can’t snitch. Fortunately Frank was wearing a brown suit at work, brown is the best color in the world for hiding stains. Frank then went back upstairs to possibly resume a poorly and partly consummated clean up job in the metal room that his step-and-fetch-it Jim Conley had not done a very good job, but possibly being a little bit of a premadonna it is unlikely he would have made much effort, for the same reasons he had not wanted to touch the nasty twisted and disheveled body in the basement that his actions in the metal room had earlier created. If You’re Gonna Murder Someone, At Least Do a Good Clean Up Job Since they didn’t have CSI at the time, Frank didn’t know any better, his training was in engineering, not forensic murder cover-up. In the second floor metal room there appeared to be a really badly executed clean up job, which included smearing and rubbing haskolene into the blood stains left by Mary Phagans head when she was accidentally dropped on the floor during her removal process. The haskolene smearing appeared to be a cover up attempt to hide the murder evidence as best as possible, but the blood clearly showed through the bungled erasure attempt. It was a major blunder, and Frank should have just had his Step-and-fetch-it Jim Conley use good old fashioned water, soap and a scrub brush. It was likely that Frank had the Janitor do the half-assed clean up job and that Jim did a half-heartedly poor job or was just simply unable to hide the soaked in blood stains on the metal room floor, so they were smeared with haskolene. They botched the clean up job big time. Even worse, no one thought to remove the hair left on the lathe after Leo slammed Mary’s head into it. Employees discovered the hair in the morning of Monday, April 28th 1913, and later Mr. Coleman, Mary Phagan’s step father would identify the hair as being Mary’s. That was another major blunder of Frank, he had the negro lackey sweep the floor and clean the bathroom, but he forgot about the hair that got on the lathe. 4pm: The Night Watch (“Night Witch”) Arrives
Newt Lee, the Tall Slim Negro
When Newt Lee finally arrived at work at a few minutes to 4pm, Frank was bustling with nervousness, frantic, agitated, frenzied and excited. Leo M. Frank in a wild frazzled and pumped-up state practically pushed Lee out of the building. Frank ordered a very tired and resistant Newt Lee to leave the factory, requiring Lee to come back to the factory in about 1.5 to 2.5 hours, have a good time and come back at 6PM or 6:30PM. Frank had one last hope Jim “James” Conley would hopefully come back for the potential $200 bribe offering and final clean up job, but alas, he was not returning that day, he was in drunk and happy lala land back in his “nigger shack” as Steve Oney accurately described what they were called at the time. “What Time is It?” Newt Lee made a strong resistant hesitation to leaving the factory, because he was exhausted, he had to come into work an hour earlier at 4pm instead of 5pm on Saturday April 26 1913 by Frank’s request made on Friday April 25 1913. Frank said he wanted to go to the baseball game, which he canceled after he murdered Phagan. When Newt Lee asked Frank if he could please sleep in the packing room for an hour or two, but Frank flatly refused, wouldn’t let him stay and was insistent that Newt Lee leave the factory and go out and have a good time – finally Leo Frank practically forced Newt Lee out of the factory. Newt Lee left and came back at a few minutes before 6pm , Frank was still in a panicked and nervous state, asking him in a frantic state what time it was, this was coming from the man who spent the last 5 years in front of a large faced time clock and meticulously recorded everything. 6PM At 6PM, Frank told Newt, “Don’t punch yet!”, saying that he needed to change the time sheet. Newt watched Frank butterfinger and fumble with the changing of the time sheet in the time clock, his hands were bumbling and fumbling with it even after 5 years of changing the time sheets, it took him twice as long as usual. It was something Leo Frank could normally do with his eyes closed, blind folded and one hand tied behind his back, but today for some strange reason he was struggling with it. Newt went downstairs after he punched to smoke a fag, on a crate in the doorway downstairs. Frank frantically gathered his stuff, put on his hat and goat, then left the building briskly. As Frank exploded out of the door, he became terrified with horror when on the way out he ran into a former employee and bookkeeper named Gantt, and fell backward scared trying to practically crawl backward into the building, but it was too late – he had been spotted by Gantt and Newt Lee who was smoking finishing off his fag looked at Frank perplexedly. Frank knew that Gantt had known Mary and the Phagan family quite well, but Frank was deeply relieved when he discovered that the former employee was there because he wanted to collect his shoes he left there in the factory previously and was not looking for the missing Mary Phagan who at this time had spent nearly 6 hours slow-rotting in the basement. As the former employee Gantt, had requested to go into the factory to get his shoes, Frank lied in a non-challant manner to the former employee saying he had seen the Negro Jim Conley sweep them out of the factory, Frank was trying to get rid of him without seeming overly concerned, However, Gantt outmaneuvered Frank by saying they were a different color, and Frank who was in no position to get into a heated debate, quickly acquiesced, Frank wanted to “get the hell out dodge” as soon as possible and as far from the building as possible, as he knew Phagan’s lifeless body was slumped on a saw dust pile in the basement would be discovered by the “Night Witch” during his rounds. Gantt convinced Frank to let him go in to the factory and Frank obliged with the caveat that Newt Lee must accompany him during the whole time. Gantt, found his shoes in the packing room, and left the building with Newt Lee closely following and monitoring. Newt Lee, then locked the front door and began his security rounds. 630PM When Frank got home at 6:30pm, he did something he had never done before with Newt Lee, he immediately called the factory but no one picked up the phone. 7PM Then Frank called again at 7:00pm and Newt Lee finally picked up, Frank in a brisk frazzled voice asked if everything was Alright at the factory and when Newt Lee said Yes, Frank curtly said goodbye and slammed the phone. Frank had never called the factory on a Saturday or any other day for that matter before, to check up on things, according to Newt Lee who worked there for 3 weeks. Frank also never asked about Gantt. At the trial, Leo Frank said he called to see what the status was concerning Gantt, but Newt Lee said Frank did not ask about Gantt. Frank might have been calling the factory twice to see if Newt Lee discovered the body of Phagan, because Newt Lee was supposed to check every square inch of the factory during his rounds, but once the factory was locked up, Newt might have not gone all the way back into the rear of the basement or at all until the early morning of April 27th 1913 during his visit to the negro toilet to drop the Cosby’s off at the pool, but that was still about 8 hours away. Ironically, Leo Frank in his August 18 1913 trial testimony would make subtle complaints against Newt Lee for not finding the body sooner, henceforth throwing even more suspicion on his own two never before made phone calls to the factory at 6:30 and 7:00 PM on April 26th 1913. That evening Frank chain smoked cigarettes and guzzled booze like it was going out of style, he drank the liquor cabinet dry, he was attempting to medicate himself and his copious binging would ensure he would be badly hung over the next day and may have contributed to his inability to hide his guilt-revealing body language or it could have made him appear guilty because he was so worn out, pale, nervous and had a trembling hoarse voice, he would fire off questions at the police before they could answer the questions and fumbled with his shirt and tie. April 27th 1913 At approximately 3:15 AM in the morning, the Negro Nightwatch named Newt Lee, during his lantern beholden factory rounds, went down to the cellar to use the negro latrine in the rear of the basement, the Cosby’s were knocking, and they were asking if they could use the pool in the back yard, when he finished his business, without wiping he pulled up his draws and pants, and buttoned up, he spotted and discovered the mangled twisted body of a little girl in the gloom of the rear of basement, about 150 feet back. When he approached the dead body, he noticed that her dress was pulled up and her underwear was torn and pulled down, soaked in blood and urine, and a cord was dug snug and deep into the tender flesh of her neck. Newt Lee got the hell out of dodge as quickly as he possibly could and called Leo Frank for nearly 10 minutes straight, but alas there was no answer, Leo was drunk as a skunk and passed out stone cold, finally giving up on ringing Frank, Newt Lee called the police station at 3:28AM and one of the biggest Jewish scandals of the early 20th century was about to unfold. Newt loped to the ladder at the beginning of front area of the basement and shimmied back up, he ran up the stairs, briskly going to the office to call Leo M. Frank. After nearly 10 minutes of trying to reach Leo M. Frank, Newt gave up and decided to call the police. A Phone Call at Half Passed Three in the Morning, the Investigation Begins The Police and Detectives were on the scene within minutes in their model T fords, they were left with the engines on, they were let in by Newt Lee who waited by the front door for them to arrive, and they went down the hatchway, descended the diagonal ladder with lanterns and flash lights, beginning their investigation. They noticed drag marks from the front of the elevator and lead all the way to the cinder / saw dust pile in front of the furnace. They found had to pull down a stocking to confirm the girl was White, because she had been dragged in the dirty floor. They found the contrived murder notes. Later that same morning and day, observing, and questioning countless associated and affiliated people, they immediately contacted an apprehensive Leo M. Frank at the crack of dawn because he was a senior level manager of the factory who had been at the virtually empty and shuttered factory that day. Frank resisted going with the police when they arrived because he wanted some Coffee and breakfast before going out with them, and Frank was very nervous, pale, trembling, fumbling with himself and was hung over badly with a hoarse voice. He fired questions at the police so quickly they didn’t have a chance to answer. Frank Incriminated Himself When Frank gave a number of incriminating statements, was betrayed by his body language and made several foolish mistakes and blunders that totally gave himself away, the intuitive police and detectives became very suspicious, with the result of Frank becoming prime suspect number one. After questioning Leo Frank and numerous other people, everything seemed to conclusively point in the direction of Leo M. Frank. Two days later, Leo Frank was arrested and detained on the morning of Tuesday, April 29 1913 at 11AM and later, he was indicted and finally his conviction on April 25 1913, which was affirmed by the Trial Judge the day after the verdict on August 26, 1913. It was this highly publicized event at the end of the trial that became one of the pre climaxes of the Leo M. Frank case, followed by a lynching 2 years later and in all, would define how Leo M. Frank would forever be remembered. The undertaker had also arrived afterward and they took the body out of the basement, up the ladder and to the mortuary to be placed on a cooling table. The dead child, was later identified by Grace Hicks the morning of April 27th 1913 as thirteen year old Mary Anne Phagan. Grace Hicks worked in the metal department on the second floor with Mary Phagan for about a year and was very familiar with her. Grace Hicks testified some very interesting details about the metal room, including the positioning of the dressing room and the layout of the bathrooms there and where Mary Phagan’s work station was in relation to them. Police and Detective Investigation – April 27th 1913 Sunday After police and detectives questioned Leo M. Frank, countless dozens of factory employees and arrested some affiliated people, all the evidence began pointing in one direction. Tuesday April 29 1913 Fifty Six hours after the body of Mary Phagan was discovered, the police and detectives had developed a very strong legitimate suspicion against Frank, their intuition was based the evidence and testimony they had gathered. Leo M. Frank was arrested on Tuesday, April 29th 1913 at 11AM, it was the last day of his freedom. Coroners Inquest Jury, Wednesday, April 30 1913 The official murder investigation wasted no time. The coroner’s inquest began shortly after nine o’clock on Wednesday, the 30th day of April. The empaneled Jury hearing the testimony consisted of 7 men in total, 6 inquest Jurymen and the Coroner: 1. H. Ashford, 2. Glenn Dewberry, 3. J. Hood, 4. C. Langford, 5. John Miller 6. C. Sheats 7. Judge of the Inquest Jury, Coroner, Paul Donehoo. The Perjury of Lemmie A Quinn Concerning Leo M. Frank’s alibi, Frank said he had forgotten for the first week of the murder investigation to bring forward Lemmie A Quinn, foreman of the metal room, a key witness. However at the Coroners Inquest, Lemmie Quinn, came forward to provide contrived testify that sounded totally suspicious and did not pass the common sense test.
Herbert Schiff Quinn said, he had come back to the pencil factory and specifically Leo M. Frank’s office at 12:20 to talk about baseball with Mr. Herbert Schiff, but Mr. Schiff was not supposed to be at the factory at all that day which was virtually empty, because it was a State holiday, Confederate Memorial Day and everyone was given the day off. The testimony of Quinn was meant to shrink the plausible time Leo M. Frank could have strangled Mary Phagan by 10 minutes. Quinns testimony also added eye witness testimony strength to Frank’s alibi which left him about a half an hour unaccounted for (noon to 12:30). Lemmie Quinns perjury, shrunk Leo M. Frank’s unaccounted for time from 30 minutes to 20 minutes when the murder took place, but it still left wide open and unaccounted for, the time frame Mary Phagan had come to Leo M. Frank’s office, which was between 12:05 and 12:10, maybe 12:07. Conclusion of the Coroners’ Inquest and Jury Coroner Paul Donehoo and his Inquest Jury of six men empaneled, questioned over 100 employees and dozens of other various associated people. The week long inquest and testimony provided under oath, left very strong suspicion on Leo M. Frank when Thursday, May 8th 1913, the Mary Phagan Inquest drew to a close.[1] Coroner’s and Inquest Juries Verdict 7 to 0 The Coroner and his Inquest Jury of six men together voted unanimously 7 to 0 recommending Leo M. Frank held for murder and turned over to, and investigated by a Grand Jury of 23 men which included 5 Jews. Newt Lee was ordered to be held as a material witness as expected. Deputy Plennie Minor delivered the unanimous verdict of the Coroner’s Inquest Jury to Leo M. Frank who was being held in the infamous Tower. Frank was sitting perusing a local newspaper at the time. Deputy Plennie Minor approached Leo M. Frank and told him about the unanimous verdict of the Inquest Jury, which had ordered that Frank be held for murder and for a more thorough investigation by the Grand Jury! Newt Lee slumped his head dejectedly when the bad news was delivered, however, Leo Frank insolently replied that it was no more than he had expected and continued crackling away and folding at the big sheets of his newspaper. More than two hundred witnesses, factory workers and affiliates had been subpoenaed providing testimony at the Inquest. Grand Jury: A Decisive Moment, to Try or Not to Try. On May 24th 1913, the day the Grand Jury of twenty three men were to vote after a long, grueling and exhaustive review of testimony and evidence concerning Leo M. Frank, they would be short some members. Two Grand Jurors where not present on the day of the vote, one member, a Jewish member went to New York City and M. Beutell, a Gentile, had an important event he was unable to miss, and as these two men were out of town, they were not permitted to vote by absentee ballets, it therefore reduced the Grand Jury from 23 to 21 voting men. The importance of this reduction was that only a majority of 11 instead of the former 12 votes were necessary to indict Leo Frank in this nail biting moment for the police and prosecution that had tirelessly spent a month building their case. Even though Leo Frank was a businessman partly responsible for creating more than a hundred jobs for the community, they were not sympathetic, because primarily the evidence was solid and overwhelmingly strong against him. With twenty-one men remaining, some close observers may have wondered if the vote was straddling the fence in either direction, and questioned whether the majority of 11 out of 21 would come forward and vote for an indictment or not. A Close Call? In a result that set another powerful tone for the future of the case, just as the Coroner’s Inquest Jury vote had done, the Grand Jury voted unanimously 21 to 0 in favor of indicting Leo M. Frank for the murder of little Mary Phagan. With four Jews voting unanimously with seventeen other Gentile men to Indict Frank, it puts serious doubts about the veracity of the Jewish Communities historical and contemporary race-baiting hatred claims over the last 100 years that Leo Frank went to trial because he was Jewish; an innocent Jew railroaded and framed collectively by European-Americans who are innately anti-Jewish and the whole Leo Frank affair was a widespread anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic conspiracy. Countering the Jewish position, Southerners are wondering why Frank supporters must resort to making false, bigoted and racist blood-libel smears against them for the last 100 years, when the evidence against Frank is solid, and every level of the U.S. legal system sided with the Jury. The indictment read… In the name and behalf of the citizens of Georgia, charge and accuse Leo M. Frank, of the [Fulton] County and State [of Georgia] aforesaid, with the offense of Murder, for that the said Leo M. Frank in the County aforesaid on the 26th day of April in the year of our Lord Nineteen Hundred and thirteen, with force and arms did unlawfully and with malice aforethought kill and murder one Mary Phagan by then and there choking her, the said Mary Phagan, with a cord place around her neck contrary to the laws of said State, the good order, peace and dignity thereof. The Frankites, like Steve Oney and Dinnerstein, would claim the outlandish claim the entire Leo Frank case can be reduced to the word of Jim Conley vs. Leo Frank. Though the indictment had absolutely nothing to do with Jim Conley, and after powerful and compelling evidence (without Jim Conley) was presented to the Grand Juryman, the following 21 Grand Jurymen of which four were Jews unanimously signed the bill of indict against Leo Frank (Bill of Indictment, 1913, Atlanta Publishing Company, The Frank Case, 1913; and Mary Phagan Kean, 1987). The 21 Members of the Grand Jury Unanimously Voting to Indict Leo Frank are: 1. J.H. Beck, Foreman, 2. A.D. Adair, Sr., 3. F.P.H. Akers, 4. B.F. Bell, 5. J.G. Bell, 6. Col. Benjamin, 7. Wm. E.

Frank, would be put on trial before a cohort of 13 men, a Judge and a petite Jury of 12 men to decide his fate. Trial of Leo M. Frank See:State’s Exhibit A
Judge Leonard Strickland Roan Presiding Over the Leo Frank Murder Trial
The Murder Trial Testimony Captured in The State of Georgia vs. Leo M. Frank, July 28 1913 to August 26 1913

Leo Frank late July 1913 at his Murder Trial

After being virtually silent during nearly three months of incarceration at the tower, Leo Frank finally emerged in fore of the public stage, for a sardine packed courtroom and a drama which would last 29 days. Unknowingly at the time, the Leo Frank trial would become one of those rare cases in U.S. history that would enthrall and capture the imagination and tribal emotions of the masses for more than a century after the whole ordeal. Put before a freshly created Jury and showing signs of being physically sunken, mentally worn out and emotionally weathered, Leo Frank sat in the middle of the court room, not obscured by a table, but fully exposed in full view, flushed and emaciated – a shrunken and empty shell of the former man. Leo Frank’s perturbly cocked head with a gentle sideways lean exuded a very subtle but begging plea for mercy, pity and sympathy, coming from his eyes impenetrable walls. Throughout the entire trial, Leo Frank’s crossed arms and legs exuded at times lonely, insecure, arrogant and insubordinate body language which gives one the nearly imperceptible psychological feeling of wanting to ask: what are you hiding? More Particularly, Leo Frank’s shifting crossed arms could easily be interpreted as an overtly defensive body language you might expect of a teenage boy who painfully waits in the tension of anticipation just moments before being sternly scolded by an incensed mother. Though psychology was in its infancy at the time (1913), today more than a century later, contemporary psychologists suggest most people unconsciously interpret crossed arms as different mental degrees reflecting defensive, “conflicted” and closed symbolic behavior. Moreover, Leo Frank’s testicle crushing tightly crossed legs gave off the most imperceptible haughty, stimulated and shielded tone. There was something unnerving about Leo Frank’s body language and appearance at the trial, which seemed entirely out of place, giving one the feeling of an unsettling notion. Frank’s body language seemed out of sync with everyone else in the Courtroom and most certainly the Jury placed in front of him, and as such, Leo Frank’s demeanor whether intentional or unconscious was setting a disadvantageous posture, working against him from the starting block of his trial.
The Conviction The Leo M. Frank conviction, along with what was perceived as defamatory portrayal of Jews in the media, became the impetus and directly inspired the founding of the ADL. Appeals – Majority and Unanimous Decisions during the Appeals Process Affirm the Murder Conviction Given by the Trial Jury After the murder trial ended on August 26th 1913, Leo M. Frank commenced two embarrassing and estopel years (1913 to 1915) reflecting a snap shot the Leo Frank Defense League movement, with numerous half-serious half-baked legal appeals made to the Georgia Superior Court, Georgia Supreme Court, United States District Court and United States Supreme Court, every court carefully and meticulously studied and reviewed the murder trial testimony and evidence, every single court affirmed the murder conviction, with only 4 dissenting judges out of more than a dozen affirming Judges. See: Primary Sources Section. Two Years of Half-Baked Court Appeals Leo Frank then began a very expensive two year circus of embarrassing, poorly concocted and frivolous appeals. Franks lawyers and defense teams used every method of criminal activity on behalf of Leo Frank to create evidence to support him. They bribed and threatened witnesses, put forward and spun together half-baked frivolous court appeals through every possible legal channel, all the way up and down the Georgia State Superior Court, Georgia State Supreme Court, the District Court of the United States and the United States Supreme Court, multiple times ad nauseum. A Request for a New Trial: on 31 October 1913 – Judge Roan denied the motion for a new trial More specifically, immediately following the Leo M. Frank murder trial, Frank’s defense team requested a new trial. The presiding judge Leonard S. Roan denied the appeal. Another motion for a new trial was denied by the Georgia Supreme Court in February 1914 after much review. More specifically on 17 February 1914 – the Supreme Court of Georgia affirmed the verdict of the lower court by a vote of 4 to 2. 25 February – the Supreme Court of Georgia, unanimously overruled a motion for rehearing. 7 March 1914 – Frank was sentenced by Judge Leonard S. Roan, for the second time to death by hanging on April 17th, Leo M. Frank’s birthday. No Doubting Judge Sentences One to Die on their Birthday Leo Frank partisans are forever claiming Judge Leonard Strickland Roan doubted Leo Frank’s conviction. Judge Leonard S. Roan, finally sentenced Leo M. Frank to be hanged on his birthday April 17th 1913, putting infinite doubt in the suggestion of the Jewish and Frank defense’s statements and forged documents, that Judge Leonard Roan had doubted the verdict. No real scholar who is incapable of self-deception could ever take it seriously that Judge Roan doubted Leo Frank’s guilt which is always claimed by Leo Frank partisans, because No genuine seriously doubting Judge would ever do something so profoundly cruel as to sentence someone they thought might be innocent to be hanged on their birthday, unless they, openly or secretly, fully believed the individual was absolutely guilty. One’s birthday only happens once every 365 days (barring leap year) and as an execution date, it is only reserved for individuals who are absolutely and without question guilty of the most heinous crimes. 16 April 1914 – at the eleventh hour, an extraordinary motion for a new trial was filed and death sentence on Leo M. Frank’s 30th birthday again stayed. 22 April 1914 – Judge B. H Hill, former chief justice of the Court of Appeals, who had succeeded to the Judgeship of Fulton Superior Court, denied the extraordinary motion for a new trial. 25 April 1914 – The day before the anniversary of Mary Phagan’s death, Frank’s sanity was examined and he was declared sane. Motion to set the Verdict aside as a Nullity Beginning in June 1914, Frank’s defense appealed to the Fulton County Superior Court to set aside the guilty verdict. Fulton County Superior Court denied the appeal, as did the Georgia Supreme Court (December 1914). 14 November 1914 – the Georgia Supreme Court again denied a new trial. 18 November 1914, the Georgia Supreme Court refused a writ of error. 23 November 1914 – Mr. Justice Lamar, of the Supreme Court of the United States refused a writ of error. 25 November 1914 – Mr. Justice Holmes of the United States Supreme Court, also refused a writ. 7 December 1914, the full bench of the United States Supreme Court refused a writ of error. 9 December 1914, Frank was re-sentenced to death to hang on January 22, 1915. 21 December 1914 – United States District Judge W. T. Newman of Georgia, refused a writ of habeas Corpus. 28 December 1914 – Mr. Justice Lamar granted an appeal and certificate of reasonable doubt to the United States Supreme Court. 15 April 1915 – the Supreme Court of the United States 4 to 2, with Mr. Justices Holmes and Hughes dissenting, dismissed the appeal. Ultimately Leo M. Frank had fully exhausted completely every possible court appeals process. Georgia Prison Commission 9 June 1915 – the State Prison Commission submitted a divided report to Governor Slaton, Commissioners Davison and Rainey voting against and Commissioner Paterson for commutation. As five courts upheld the original decision of the jury in Leo Frank’s case, Frank then applied for clemency with the Georgia Prison Commission to commute his sentence from death to life in prison. This application was denied. During the two Year Appeals Process, The National Letter Writing Campaign and Emotional Appeals Process Was in Full Force With every possible court appeal fully exhausted, Leo M. Frank’s last hope was utilizing the full extent of his 2 year old flush bankroll of his legal defense fund which was made possible by advertising magnate A.D. Lasker and newspaper mogul Adolph Oct the owner of the New York Times. With a swollen treasury of hundreds of thousands of dollars, the culmination of a vast 2 year political bribery and manipulation machine had been unleashed across the United States and even some major cities throughout Europe. The Governor of Georgia had been flooded with more than 10,000 letters in support of Leo M. Frank from people who never read the official trial record in the case which included all the facts, testimony and evidence against Leo Frank. See Brief of Evidence in Primary Sources. Criminal Governor Lastly, with absolutely no more court appeal options left for Leo Frank and the Prison Commission denying his request for clemency, there was only one last option, a commutation by the corrupt Governor of Georgia, John M. Slaton. Frank applied to Governor John M. Slaton for Executive Clemency. Last Hope: 31 May 1915 – Frank’s plea for commutation of sentence to life imprisonment was heard before the State Prison Commission. Frank had one last hope. The Governor of the State of Georgia, John Marshall Slaton who was in office from June 28, 1913 to June 26, 1915. Slaton would save the life of Leo Frank at the eleventh hour, as Frank was on Death Row registered to be lynched on June 22nd 1915 by Sheriff Mangum. Well before the dramatic soap opera of the eleventh hour on the infamous day of June 21st 1915, the treacherous and criminal Governor of Georgia, John M. Slaton, was made a senior law partner in the very firm representing and defending Leo M. Frank at his July 28th 1913 to August 26th murder trial. The firm was called: Rosser, Brandon, Slaton & Phillips. John Marshall Slaton, Clemency, Commuted Leo M. Frank’s death sentence to life in prison.June 21st 1915, The 11th Hour. On June 21 1915, one day before Leo M. Frank was to be hanged to death, John M. Slaton, when at the exit as an outgoing Governor of Georgia, in an absolutely gross conflict of interest, commuted the death sentence of Leo M. Frank to life in prison. The clemency was based on a half-baked hokey commutation order that insulted the intelligence of the elite of Georgia, Southerners, Legal Scholars, Judges, Lawyers and the people of the United States of America, when the commutation was compared against the dry leaves of the 1913 Brief of Evidence. John M. Slaton, Governor of the State of Georgia Betrays the People A commutation hearing was held in Atlanta on June 12-16, 1915. Representing Leo Frank were William M. Howard of Augusta, Manning J. Yeomans of Dawson, Harry A. Alexander and Leonard Haas of Atlanta speaking for the defense. On June 21, 1915, just six days before Nathaniel Edwin Harris, the newly elected governor, was to take office, and one day before Frank was scheduled to hang (June 22 1915), Slaton commuted Frank’s death sentence to life in prison. There was public outrage, primarily because John M. Slaton, was a law partner and business associate in the law firm hired by Leo Frank, making Leo Frank Slaton’s client and because Slaton in a gross conflict of interest had betrayed the constitution and his oath of office. The Southern population reached ascended to boiling crescendo of rage and were indignantly furious to a fevered pitch at the insolence of the clemency decision made on behalf of Leo M. Frank, especially after every level of the United States Legal System had reviewed meticulously and upheld the evidence supporting the conviction. More than a dozen judges had affirmed the conviction and Leo Frank had made a near confession on August 18 1913, when he told the Jury he made an unconscious bathroom visit inside the metal room during the time Phagan was murdered there. John M. Slaton, feigned moral and emotional consternation, saying: “I can endure misconstruction, abuse and condemnation,” Slaton said, “but I cannot stand the constant companionship of an accusing conscience which would remind me that I, as governor of Georgia, failed to do what I thought to be right…. [F]eeling as I do about this case, I would be a murderer if I allowed this man to hang. It may mean that I must live in obscurity the rest of my days, but I would rather be plowing in a field for the rest of my life than to feel that I had that blood on my hands.”[1] Slaton’s commutation disregarded volumes of trial evidence and testimony against Frank, but Slaton also chose to not disturb the Jury’s verdict and in a sly and underhanded sort of way affirmed the murder conviction. Slaton, also suggested, that the Jewish Communities charge of race hatred as being the reason Frank was convicted was unfair, as it was certainly not true, because numerous other legal tribunals reviewed the evidence and testimony, and felt it was strong enough to convict Leo M. Frank. None of the appeals courts could be falsely accused of being mob terrorized or antisemitic, as the Jewish community put such false accusations and slander against the murder trial Jury. In order to protect Leo Frank, he was transferred from Fulton Tower in Atlanta to the prison farm outside Milledgeville. July 17 1915 – Leo Frank Gets Shanked
Frank was attacked at the State Farm Prison in Milledgeville on July 17, 1915, by a fellow convict named Green who cut Leo’s throat with a 7 inch butcher knife. Two inmate doctors got to him in the nick of time and stitched him up. Frank lingered between life and death for several weeks, but finally recovered. The wound never fully healed. The wounds were slow to heal in the boiling and humid heat of the Georgian Summer. Those wounds would split open again a month later, during the culmination of the Leo Frank case. August 17 1915 – Knights of Mary Phagan, Founding Fathers of the Current Ku Klux Klan (KKK)

Two months later after the commutation, Leo M. Frank, was abducted from Prison by a group of men from the State of Georgia’s highest social, legal and political strata, they Knighted themselves as the Knights of Mary Phagan, they drove Frank 175 miles to Cobb County, and Lynched him near an intersection at Frey’s Mill. A mature oak tree helped fulfill the most perfectly executed slow strangulation lynching of Leo M. Frank, that is just after the dawn dew kissed a glorious rising sun on August 17th 1915.

Lynching of Leo Frank – August 17 1915

See: The Lynching of Leo Frank August 18, 1913, Lucille Selig Frank Leaves Atlanta to Bury Leo M. Frank in New York City Mrs. Lucille Selig Frank boarded a train for New York City on August 18 1913, Leo Frank’s body was returned to New York on August 20, 1913, where he was buried at New Mount Carmel Cemetery. The Burial of Leo Frank Last Name, First Name Location Date of Death FRANK, LEO 1-E-41-1035-2 8/17/1915 Section: 1 Block: E Map: Path: 41 Lot: 1035 Line: Society: Grave: 2 Cemetery Gates Close at 4:00 P.M.

Lucille returned to Atlanta where she opened a dress shop and became sporadically active in the work of The Temple. Lucille’s asexual, dumpy, androgynous, and butch physical appearance, plus her weight issues and having been married to Leo Frank, along with the rumors of extensive extracurricular whoring activities surrounding him, and including the grueling and grissly crime leading to his conviction (two years of higher court affirmation), had tended to severely diminish and limit Lucille’s dateability and sex appeal. Lucille Frank never remarried, and always signed her name as “Mrs. Leo M. Frank,” until her death at age 69. In her later age, her weight seemed to normalize.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words Lucy Selig died on April 23, 1957 (1888-1957). Even then, in 1957, Frankites have suggested: her family was unsure of burying her in Atlanta, and it wasn’t for another number of years that nephews buried her ashes between her parents’ graves in Oakland Cemetery, but without a marker. Lucille died 42 years after Leo M. Frank was lynched, what was equivalent to a life time as the life expectancy in the early 20th century was around 46 years and she was very clear about her own ultimate verdict in the Leo Frank Case, her wishes were unmistakeable in her will and she stated that she wanted to be cremated and NOT buried next to or with her deceased husband Leo M. Frank. It was anticlimactic, sad and an almost betraying final verdict coming from the woman who stood by her husband loyally throughout the whole ugly drama, even though her cook Minola Magnolia McKnight had tipped her hand revealing Lucille knew approximately what really happened. The official records State’s Exhibit J indicates Lucy Selig knew the real score, In truth what could Lucille really do?.. other than the only option she really had, cognitive dissonance and double think, her honor, the honor of her family and the Jewish community was on the line. Lucille did what any good loyal wife would do in this situation, stand by her husband , right or wrong, guilty or innocent. Infallible Wives and Mothers We can not hold the same black and white, right or wrong lens to loyal mothers and wives who stand by their sons and husbands invincibly like Lucille S. Frank did, and we do not live in a black and white world, but one of subtle shades and variations of gray. The moral lens of what is right and wrong, can not be applied to mothers and wives who loyally stand by their children and husbands, even if deep down they know of their guilt. Lucille did what she had to do, which was a hard decision and she should not be negatively judged for fiercely standing faithfully by her husband loyally all the way to the end, even though cosmetically she had to put on the veneer of pretenses and appearances, pretending publicly her husband Leo Frank was “not guilty” of the murder. On some level it was probably difficult for Lucy Selig to trick herself into not believing the dozen or more employees who came forward and suggested Frank was a sexual predator, pedophile and whore monger (in essence), some suggesting he was regularly whoring on the Sabbath and trying to turn out girls at the factory. Lucille was provincial, but she was not naive, she knew what her husband was doing since he stopped having sex with her except for the obligatory one time a month during ovulation he would perform manual procreation with her trying to conceive, Leo the Second. Three years of trying and no results. Though Steve Oney, quotes a woman 70 years later who suggested Lucille was prego and miscarried, but none of the voluminous letters written between lucille and leo hint at any pregnancy or miscarriage, condolences, or mentions, not even subtle or couched appear in them (Koenigsberg, 2010).
William J Burns Detective Agency of New York The alleged persistent theme of the Leo M. Frank Case according to Frankites was Jew York City vs. Georgia. Detective William Burns the keystone cop style sleuth employed by the Leo M. Frank team, who was originally dismissed for being too obvious in his bribing, threatening and criminal activity, received a telegram from Marietta Georgia after the lynching of Leo M. Frank. The Telegram sarcastically told him to come down quickly and investigate the lynching, signed H.H. Looney Chief of Police. William Burns had been driven out of Georgia with threats of lynching when it was discovered he was hired by the money bags supporting the Leo Frank defense to try to bribe any witnesses he could and turn the Mary Phagan murder investigation into a carnival side show by publishing grandiose announcements in the local newspapers.
1980’s – Pardon without Exoneration Alonzo “Lonnie” Mann – 1982 / 1983 March 7, 1982, A questionable and suspicious chapter was unfurled for the public. The Nashville Tennessean published a special breaking news report about a story in which Alonzo Mann, Leo Franks former office boy in 1913, said he saw janitor Jim Conley carrying Mary Phagans body to the basement of the National Pencil Company in Atlanta, where Mr. Frank was the superintendent. Mr. Mann asserted that Conley killed Mary and Frank was innocent. 1982, About 70 years after the murder of Mary Phagan and Lynching of Leo M. Frank, Alonzo Mann the former office boy of Leo M. Frank came forward in an other doctored up media expose pushing the Jewish Defense position at the behest of the Jewish Community. Now nearly 83 years old, the senile and ailing Alonzo Mann with a mountain of medical bills came forward to say he had seen Conley carrying Mary Phagans body on the first floor. Alonzo Mann produced an affidavit seven decades after the Leo M. Frank drama, thus giving the Frankites more odious support for their position, but however, because of the Frank Defense’s history of obtaining suspicious and questionable affidavit through criminal means and bribing to defend Leo M. Frank the affidavit was not taken seriously by anyone familiar with the case. Especially since, Alonzo Mann testified he left at around noon and in his old age had a mountain of unpaid medical bills. Moreover, Alonzo Mann brought absolutely nothing new to the Leo M. Frank Case or Trial and his new testimony sounds fake, because Jim (James) Conley had admitted to being an accomplice and that he participated in bringing the dead body of Mary Phagan to the basement at Leo M. Frank’s request. In a statement that makes absolutely no sense and does not pass the scrutiny of common sense, Alonzo Mann said, that the Negro Jim Conley threatened his life if he told anyone about seeing him with the dead body of Mary Phagan and when Alonzo Mann told his family and parents, they allegedly told him to keep quiet about it. Despite Alonzo Mann alleged “taking a lie detector test” and signing an affidavit, the Alonzo Mann’s story lacks the common sense test, truth and veracity, because at the time “Negroes” were second class citizens, and no White Family or Parents would tell their White Children to be quiet about a negro allegedly murdering a White Girl. Even today in modern times, no White Family would ever tell a White boy to be quiet about a Negro murdering a White Girl. It doesn’t make sense and comes off like total bullshit, to be blunt. There was something about Alonzo Mann’s testimony that tends to affirm Jim Conley was called in to work on a holiday to sit in his usual place under the stairwell and watch for Leo Frank. Alonzo Mann State’s Adds More Evidence that Leo Frank Lied on the Witness Stand What is more interesting is that Alonzo Mann’s 1980’s revelation, is that he said he saw Jim Conley numerous times in the morning and early afternoon on April 26, 1913, sitting on a box under the stairs on the first floor. Because Mann says it was from the morning till noon, this eye witness account may further prove that Leo Frank lied on the stand on August 18, 1913, about Frank not knowing Jim Conley was sitting on a box under the stairs on the first floor, acting as a watchdog and look out for him. Leo Frank said he had come and gone from the factory in the morning, and would have seen and known about his roustabout lackey waiting there for him, (Read the August 18, 1913, murder trial testimony of Leo Frank) Alonzo Mann: Dead Man’s Affidavit However, the ADL of B’nai B’rith, American Jewish Committee, Atlanta Jewish Federation and numerous other Jewish organizations used the affidavit after Alonzo Mann died to push for a Posthumous Pardon and Exonerate Leo M. Frank for the murder of little Mary Ann Phagan. First Pardon Failed Attorneys for three Jewish organizations petitioned the State (Georgia) Board of Pardons and Paroles to pardon Leo Frank, but the petition was denied on December 22, 1983. Pardon Achieved: Posthumous Pardon without Exoneration – March 11 1986 Pyrrhic Victory for the Jewish Community After successful pressure from the ADL of B’nai B’rith, and other Jewish Organizations, they get the Georgia Board of Paroles to pardon Leo M. Frank, but they would not exonerate him of the Crime. Jewish Power and Political Correctness Prevailed On March 11, 1986, the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles granted Frank a pardon, citing the state’s failure to protect him or prosecute his killers, though they stopped short of exonerating Leo M. Frank of the murder of Mary Phagan. Leo Frank’s murder conviction is still today black letter law and binding legal precedent. The Judge and Jury have the last word, as do the vigilante lynchers who were never prosecuted. Spun Pardon and Pyrrhic Victory The Jewish Community saw the Pardon at face value as vindication of Leo Frank, but it was really a Pyrrhic victory. First, because in order to pardon someone of a crime, the person has to be guilty, you can’t pardon someone unless you acknowledge they are guilty. Therefore the guilt of the individual has to be affirmed and in Leo Frank’s case it was indisputable binding settled law. So the Prison Board in the 1980’s basically acknowledged the veracity and truth that Leo M. Frank was guilty, but they refused to exonerate him of his guilt, though they forgave him of the Murder of Mary Phagan, because the state failed to protect Leo M. Frank and because his lynching prevented him from further appeals – there is only one problem with that… Further appeals at any level of the United States Court System? The prison board has a clear and full understanding of the law, and yet they made a bald face lie. They were patently in error concerning the lynching of Leo Frank preventing him from any further appeals within the appellate court system, because Leo M. Frank had fully and totally exhausted all of his court appeal options at every level of the State, District and Federal Appellate Courts, with the Supreme Court unanimously overruling any further review of the case, thus closing the door forever at all levels of the appellate court system. When there were no more options left in the court system, the prison board at the time refused a recommendation of clemency and even the bribed Governor John M. Slaton, refused to pardon Leo Frank and actually stated in his commutation letter he was NOT disturbing the guilty verdict given to Leo Frank by the Jury. Not a single legal body in the last 100 years has overturned the guilt of Leo Frank, but attempts to spin the truth have endlessly been made.
The Prison Board Affirmed Leo Frank’s Guilt By Proxy The board affirmed Leo M. Frank’s guilt and quelled the powerful and wealthy Jewish Community, that has for 100 years has been vociferously screeching Leo M. Frank was a “noble and innocent Jew, Framed, railroaded and scapegoated in a vast Anti-Jewish conspiracy”, because in order to Pardon someone they have to have first committed a crime, you have to basically first acknowledge openly or in an unspoken manner, that the individual is guilty of a crime, before they can be pardoned.

Under the 'fair use' rule of copyright law, an author may make limited use of another author's work without asking permission. Fair use is based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials for purposes of commentary and criticism. The fair use privilege is perhaps the most significant limitation on a copyright owner's exclusive rights.

Fair use as described at 17 U.S.C. Section 107:

"Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
  • (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work."
