Gen. George van Horn Moseley and Merwin K. Hart were held up to public gaze by Attorney General Robert Jackson tonight as examples of “men who are satisfied with democracy as long as they or their interests are in control of it.”

Addressing the Law Society of Massachusetts, Jackson denounced both men as pro-Fascists and quoted them both as attempting to “brush aside” democracy. Moseley is a notorious anti-Semite, while Hart is president of the New York State Economic Council, which Jackson said was closely allied to manufacturers’ associations.
