Stars Kent Smith. Despite his disagreement with their political philosophies, Hughes defends five Socialists denied seats in the New York State Legislature after their election in 1919. His argument that the men cannot be lawfully refused seats costs him the presidency he desires. Issues: the liberties of Americans vs. security of the nation, the Red Scare of 1920, and the role of third parties.
