G.K. Chesterton On The Current Congress

No, G.K. Chesterton never met Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska). Chesterton died in 1936. But he clearly had someone very much like him in mind when he said,
"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - The Cleveland Press, 3/1/21
I can't think of any time in America's past, except possibly when the New Deal legislation was passed, when this was more true.
