- 1930: Five socialists expelled from the New York Assembly
- 1999: Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial fails in the Senate 55-to-45 on perjury vote and 50-to-50 on obstruction of justice vote
- 2006: Tom DeLay resigns as House Majority Leader after being indicted
Perhaps there is no relationship between these things, or perhaps there is some. Still, seems like a momentous day in History.
