Disavowed Ouisconsinites

ARTIFACT: Candy dispenser commemorating one of the Communists who secretly worked in the U.S. State Dept. during early 1950s, according to U.S. senator and Ouisconsin native, Joseph Raymond “Tail-Gunner Joe” McCarthy (1908-57). McCarthy never produced any evidence of his charges, leading aficionados of “commie consternation collectibles” to disagree as to whether there should be 57, 81, or 205 items in full sets of pinko-sympathizer novelties.
