The Half Pint Man

The half pint man has nothing to do with the size of the man, the half pint man was a person each political party would have in a  town who when it came time to vote would slip the voter a half pint of liquor and tell him whom to vote for.   It is much less prevalent today as it was back in the 1950s and before.  Today you vote and get nothing for it but another slick politician elected to office.  Oral history as it was told to me said Harlan Tull was the half pint man for the Democratic party in Delmar.
