Insolent Chutzpah and Atlanta Georgia’s Gubernatorial Political Corruption Honored 100 Years Later: The 60th Governor of Georgia John M. Slaton (Law Partner of Frank’s Lead Trial Attorney Luther Rosser) Commutes the Death Sentence of His Own Law Firm’s Client, Leo M. Frank, to Life in Prison!

by Chief Curator on June 18, 2015

[Editor’s Note: Over one hundred years of relentless media demoralization efforts, anti-Southern deracination, “us verses them” agitation, and wildly over-the-top anti-Gentilism by the hyper-ethnocentric and well-organized Jewish community against African-American and European-Americans continues unabated with this latest disgusting outrage: the centennial clemency decision honoring with a prominent sign-post historical marker erected for the 60th Governor of Georgia John Marshall Slaton (1866-1955) on June 17, 2015, for his June 21, 1915 commutation of Leo Frank’s June 22, 1915 scheduled capital punishment by way of hanging. After 20 months of appeals by the leading attorneys of our nation to every level of the United States legal system, on April 19th 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States voted unanimously against Leo Frank, rendering its last and final decision upon the case. With all of his state and federal appeals fully exhausted, Leo Frank submitted a request to the prison paroles committee to recommend gubernatorial clemency for his death sentence to life in prison, but it was rejected. Leo Frank’s last hope was his lead trial attorney’s law partner the outgoing Governor John M. Slaton, who was slated to complete his term of office in the last week of June.

Jewish activists and their fellow travelers rarely mention that after Atlanta B’nai B’rith president Leo Max Frank was arrested (Tuesday morning, April 29, 1913, at 11:30 a.m.) as the prime suspect for the rape-strangulation-mutilation of Mary Phagan (a thirteen-year-old working class christian girl who worked at the National Pencil Company) the Governor-Elect John M. Slaton and his law partner Jewish-American Benjamin Z. Phillips (of the well-known Slaton and Phillips legal team) merged with Luther Zeigler Rosser’s law firm, ‘Rosser and Brandon’ (Jewish-American attorney Morris Brandon). Together they formed Georgia’s supreme juggernaut law group of Rosser, Brandon, Slaton and Phillips on May 1st 1913.

Luther Rosser received an unheard-of $15,000 retainer to represent Leo Frank and defend him at his summer murder trial. $40,000 more from New York City and Chicago was raised for Leo Frank’s defense before his trial began – a gargantuan sum by 1913 standards for a murder case. During Leo Frank’s incarceration at Atlanta’s “Tower” — the city jail — a legal defense fund set up by Herbert Haas (another trial attorney representing Leo Frank) on his behalf. The Leo Frank defense fund eventually raised more than $250,000 for his conviction appeals, an astronomical sum of money in the early twentieth century for any kind of legal case.

Atlanta’s ultra-reform Rabbi Dr. David Marx, clandestinely went beyond the state borders of Georgia to arrange meetings of imploration with Jewish activist leadership of New York and Chicago, for the apparent intention of seeking a broader coalition on behalf of Leo Frank. The efforts of Rabbi Marx ignited a conflagration of solidarity amongst Jewry that would incite the whole nation, Jew and Gentile, in righteous indignation.   When two of the most prominent Jewish American media moguls embraced the case as a personal crusade (advertising magnate Albert Lasker and Adolph Ochs owner of the New York times) the affair that had began as an embarrassing local scandal, was artificially engineered to go viral through widespread nationwide newspaper circulation pathways and radio transmissions. The big lie strategy was employed then as it is now, that if Leo Frank’s supposed “wrongful conviction” was repeated by enough people with academic credentials, newspaper columnists, magazine journalists, book authors and radio announcers, then the masses would eventually believe it as indisputable fact. The Leo Frank case transmogrified into an ugly Jewish-American media war against White Gentile Southerners that ensued with stop-at-nothing vicious attacks and biased reports against the people of Georgia (an onslaught that sadly persists to this day more than a century later with the greatest ferocity). The Leo Frank case has become by defacto a mandatory study subject for future generations of Gentiles because it continues to be a major source of Jewish activist agitation by their civil rights groups, historical organizations and media outlets. Thus by force of Jewry’s transmogrification of this pivotal event in American legal history into an anti-Gentile morality tale, and after a century of indefatigable employment of the Big-Lie strategy in the academy and mainstream media, the case of Leo Frank has become one of the many epicenters of the Jewish culture war against Western Civilization.

Dishonor Celebrated June 2015: June 21, 1915, will forever live in United States legal history as a day of infamy, because when else in the annals of American State jurisprudence has a Governor commuted the death sentence of his own law firm’s client to life in prison after every state and federal court ruled against the convict in question? In this unique example, Leo Frank was convicted of murder and his jury unanimously recommended a punishment of “without mercy” (death by hanging) to the presiding judge Leonard Strickland Roan.  If Judge Roan had any doubts about Leo Frank’s guilt, he could have sentenced him to life in prison or given him a new trial if that would serve the cause of justice. Judge Roan turned down Leo Frank’s petition for a new trial on 107 grounds – that’s not a typo!

It was Slaton’s commutation of Leo Frank’s death sentence to life in prison, which specifically inflamed the people of Georgia and directly lead to Frank’s lynching, not anti-Semitism (If anti-Semitism was the reason Leo Frank was hanged, there were thousands of other Jews in the state of Georgia that would have been much easier targets).  In direct retaliation to this obvious political treachery, 1,200 people protested outside the governor’s mansion and the national guard had to be called to save Slaton from vigilante justice.  Looking back at all the treatments and retellings of this epic saga, 20th and 21st century Frankites (pro Leo Frank activists) rarely discuss Governor Slaton’s betrayal of the Constitution and grotesque conflict of interest involving his wealthy law firm (Rosser, Brandon, Slaton and Phillips), especially about the fact that it was the impetus for Leo Frank being abducted and hanging less than two months later on August 17, 1915 at former Sheriff William J. Frey’s farm by some of the leading men of Georgia. The claim that Leo Frank was convicted and hanged because of anti-Semitism is an anti-Gentile, century-old racist hatecrime hoax still perpetuated in the Jewish controlled media today with unyielding bigoted ferocity by Jewish activists and their sycophantic allies.

More than one hundred years later, we continue to pursue justice for Mary Phagan.

We demand the posthumous pardon of Leo Frank be revoked or nullified, whatever it takes, for this centenary racist Jewish mockery to be terminated forever. This is Jewish culture war is not over, and if it requires one hundred years of agitation and activism to get this illegal posthumous pardon overturned, then so be it! Until then, this case is not closed, but re-open. We are calling on the people of Georgia, of every county, to get involved in local politics, work your way up from the ground-up, get a law degree and run for office at the beginning or basic levels of politics to get the experience and build trust needed to climb to higher levels. Every generation we must work towards putting Jew-wise people in every position of political office and power from top to bottom. We must not only un-pardon Leo Frank, but keep that as the status quo for every decade and generation to come.

A Lesson for Judges in Memory of the Governor Who Granted Clemency to Leo Frank

Katheryn Hayes Tucker, Daily Report

June 18, 2015

A crowd that included a Georgia Supreme Court justice, an assistant attorney general, a superior court judge and a former governor gathered in the sunshine and 92-degree heat Wednesday to commemorate a plaque at the Atlanta History Center.

It wasn’t so much the simple black-and-white sign that brought them there but the memory of John Marshall Slaton, the lawyer-governor who sacrificed his political career 100 years ago to grant clemency to Leo Frank, widely believed to be wrongly convicted of murder because of anti-Semitism. Slaton commuted Frank’s death sentence to life in prison. But that wasn’t the end of the story.

As Georgia Supreme Court Justice David Nahmias put it in his remarks to the gathering, “In the final blot that the case placed on the history of our state, a mob kidnapped Leo Frank, drove him to Marietta, and lynched him.”

Nahmias continued, “It is altogether right that we still celebrate what Governor Slaton did, because we need to remember those who stood tall in defense of the rule of law, to inspire all of us who need to stand tall when the rule of law is again threatened, as it is in one way or another almost every day. We need to fight for equal justice under the law, even if we do not immediately prevail.

“Governor Slaton is, and should be, a particular inspiration to people like me—judges on the courts of Georgia and on the federal courts—the kind of judges who were unable to protect Leo Frank from the unjust ending that the mob demanded.”

Other speakers included former Gov. Roy Barnes, Cobb County Superior Court Chief Judge Steve Schuster, Assistant Attorney General of Georgia Van Pearlberg and Jerry Klinger, president of the Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation. The Georgia Historical Society also supported the project.

The marker stands beside the sidewalk on Slaton Drive near the former governor’s home and between the history center’s Veterans Park on West Paces Ferry Road and the historic Swan House. The inscription includes the governor’s name and lifespan, 1866-1955, followed by this note:

“John Marshall Slaton was born in Meriwether County and graduated from the University of Georgia before practicing law in Atlanta. Slaton served in both houses of the Georgia legislature and two terms as governor (1911-12 and 1913-15). While in office, he modernized Georgia’s tax system and roads. Concerned by the sensationalized atmosphere and circumstantial evidence that led to the notorious 1913 conviction of Jewish businessman Leo Frank in the murder of teenager Mary Phagan, Slaton granted Frank clemency in June 1915. Slaton’s commutation of Frank’s death sentence drew national attention but hostile local backlash resulted in Frank’s lynching in August 1915 and the end of Slaton’s political career. Slaton lived on property adjacent to today’s Atlanta History Center and Slaton Drive (named in his honor). He is buried in Oakland Cemetery.”

Quotes About the Leo Frank Posthumous Pardon Efforts:

Article ‘Augusta Chronicle-Herald, May 15, 1983, statement by Justice Randall Evans Jr.’ cited in the Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean.

Quoting “Judge Randall Evans, Jr., from the Augusta Chronicle-Herald dated May 15, 1983.

In here, Judge Randall Evans, Jr., stated the review of the case and discussed Leo Frank’s appeals to the Supreme Court of Georgia:

Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean pp. 287

. . . The Supreme Court consisted of legendary giants — Justice Lumpkin, Justice Beverly Evans, Justice Fish, Justice Atkinson, Justice Hill, and Justice Beck. That court affirmed the conviction, with Justices Fish and Beck dissenting as to the admission of certain

Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean pp. 288

evidence; but on motion for rehearing by Frank, the entire court unanimously refused to grant the motion for rehearing.

Frank then filed an extraordinary motion for a new trial before Superior Court Judge Hill, which was overruled, and this decision was unanimously affirmed by the Supreme Court of Georgia.

On June 6, 1914, Frank filed a motion to set aside the verdict, again before Judge Hill, which motion was denied. And all of the justices concurred in the denial, except Justice Fish, who was absent.

So at this point in time the record shows that two impartial judges of Superior Court in Fulton County, twelve impartial jurors in Fulton County, and six impartial justices of the Supreme Court of Georgia, all held that Leo Frank was legally tried, convicted, and sentenced to be hanged.

Bear in mind, this was not in a rural county of Georgia where influential politicians are sometimes thought to sway juries, but it was in the most populous county in the South where it was not shown or even suggested that Jews are the objects of bias.

Leo Frank’s race was not an issue in the case during the trial.

But the Jewish community of the entire United States sought to shield Frank by saying he was convicted because he was a Jew! Nothing is further from the truth! Money was raised on the streets of New York and elsewhere in the Jewish community for Leo Frank’s defense; the best lawyers were employed, including the top defense lawyer in Georgia, Reuben Arnold, associated with and aided by Rosser and Brandon, Herbert Haas and Leonard Haas. But the evidence was overwhelming — and it is still so today.

It is interesting to note that Gov. John M. Slaton’s term as governor expired on June 21, 1915.

Frank’s final date for execution was set for the next day, June 22, 1915. On his last day in office, Governor Slaton commuted Frank’s sentence to life imprisonment, thereby thwarting and overturning the due process of law as set forth by the Superior Court of Fulton County and the Supreme Court of Georgia. People were so aroused and dumbfounded by this maneuver they went

to the Slaton Mansion. But the Governor called out the National Guard for his protection, and succeeded in escaping. Mobs formed in many other parts of Georgia on learning of the rape of the judicial process by Slaton.

The Jewish community nationwide directed its wrath in large part towards Thomas E. Watson of Thomson, charging that Watson had written incendiary articles in his Jeffersonian, which contributed to Frank’s conviction. They urged that Frank was a victim of racial prejudice and bias towards Jews.

Now comes “newly discovered evidence” which is claimed would have proven Frank innocent. Not so! A year ago the new witness, one Alonzo Mann, was first located, and said that as a young man he saw a Negro with the body of Mary Phagan in the basement of the factory building, and that he had remained silent for around seventy years because he was so young at the time, and he just didn’t know what to do about it. Our State Department of Archives even wrote in one of its publications that this “new evidence” seemed to prove Frank innocent. I wrote the Department of Archives and pointed out that this was not new evidence at all — that during the trial of the case it was plainly proven that Jim Conley took the body to the basement — and the Archives Department replied with an apology and, in effect, said it had goofed. That correspondence is now a part of our Department of Archives.

The suggestion that a governor or Board of Pardons and Paroles may pardon a deceased person is completely ridiculous.

The Constitution of Georgia provides that “the legislative, judicial, and executive powers shall forever remain separate and distinct.” The executive department has no power whatever to reverse, change, or wipe out a decision by the courts, albeit while the prisoner is in life he may be pardoned. But a deceased party can not be a party to legal proceedings (Eubank v. Barber, 115 Ga. App. 217-18). If Leo Frank were still in life, he could apply for pardon, but after death neither he nor any other person may apply for him. As the Supreme Court of Georgia held in Grubb v. Bullock, Governor, 44 Ga. 379: “It [pardon] must be granted the principal upon his application, or be evidenced by ratification of the application by his acceptance of it [the pardon].” Leo Frank’s case was finally terminated absolutely against him by the Supreme Court of Georgia on June 6, 1914. He lived thereafter until August 16, 1915, and never did apply for pardon. It is too late now for any consideration to be given a pardon for Leo Frank. Pardon can only be granted to a person in life, not to a dead person. To illustrate the folly of such proceedings, could someone at this late date apply for a divorce on behalf of Leo Frank?

The blood of a little girl cries out from the ground for justice. I pray the sun will never rise to shine upon that day in Georgia when we shall have so blinded ourselves to the records, to the evidence, to the judgments of the court, and the judgment of the people, as to rub out, change, and reverse the judgment of the courts that has stood for seventy years! God forbid!

If Trial Were Today, Frank Would Still Be Found Guilty by Jasper Dorsey, Friday, January 20, 1984.

The Mary Phagan murder case has been in the news for many months since Atlanta lawyers, representing several organizations, applied to the Georgia Board of Pardons an Paroles, requesting a posthumous pardon for Leo Max Frank, the convicted murderer.

The murder took place in Atlanta on Saturday, April 26, 1913. Medical evidence proved Mary Phagan, 13 years old, had been beaten unconscious, bitten, raped in an unnatural way, then strangled by a small cord. Three competitive Atlanta newspapers then — Journal, Georgian an Constitution — gave the murder and trial sensational coverage.

A posthumous pardon is an unprecedented action, especially for someone tried and convicted in 1913. A 70-year-old case cannot really be retried. The petition advanced no significant new evidence. After the trial, efforts of outsiders to re-fight the Civil War was a serious mistake, for it induced feelings of anti-Semitism where none existed. Charges of anti-Semitism and racism raised now, are also counterproductive.

What draws attention is the mob violence after Frank’s death sentence was commuted to life by the governor, and way Frank died. He was lynched. Mob violence and lynching are a disgrace. Lynching is an especially heinous crime. Those actions of 1915 are a disgrace today to our state.

But the trial in 1913 was another matter. Frank was represented by legal giants, had a fair trial, and two years of appeals to the highest state and federal courts said that he did.

Alonzo Mann, then a 14-year-old office boy of two weeks, had been a witness for Frank in 1913. His obviously inspired latter-day testimony, if given full credence would not have changed the trial’s verdict. Only if Frank had dolts for lawyers would they have failed to get the whole story from a 14-year-old before putting him up as a witness.

Frank was vigorously defended by eminent counsel, one of whom was a former law partner of the veteran trial judge [Leonard Strickland Roan].

Governor John Slaton who ultimately commuted Frank’s sentence to life, was a law partner of one defense attorney [Luther Rosser]; Another associate had a cousin on the jury.

There were three motions for new trial before two Superior Court judges, three appeals to the Georgia Supreme Court and two appeals to the U.S. Supreme court; each affirmed the trial court’s decision.

Had there been mob influence or intimidation on the trial judge or jury, the judge or defense counsel would have moved for a change of venue or moved for a mistrial.

The three very competitive Atlanta newspapers of 1913, report no mobs during the trial’s five weeks, according to an expert who researched the newspaper files. Historian Franklin Garrett reports no mobs in his definitive “Atlanta and Environs.”

All jurors signed affidavits that there was no mob influence as did court staff. Even Governor Slaton in his commutation order went to some length to deny that mob influence or anti-Semitism influenced the guilty verdict.

Mob violence began when Frank’s sentence was commuted June 21, 1915. The National Guard had to be called out to protect the Governor, who eventually had to leave the state. Years later he ran for a U.S. Senate seat, failing to carry any of Georgia’s 159 counties. The disgraceful lynching occurred August 17, 1915, an indelible blot on the state’s escutcheon.

There is no way to pardon that terrible event. The Pardons and Paroles Board could consider only the trial. They advised the petitioners that to change the verdict, affirmed many times before the nation’s highest courts, new evidence had to prove Frank’s innocence beyond any doubt. Mann’s new evidence was insignificant if the trial is studied in court records: State vs. Frank, 141 Ga. 243; 142 Ga. 617; 142 Ga. 741; 35 S. Ct. 208.

The evidence there also shows Frank’s religion had nothing to do with his conviction. He would have been convicted had he been a Presbyterian minister. He would also be convicted today.

He had married into a distinguished Atlanta family, whose heartbreak was and still is incalculable. His widow was heroic. Al of his class, Jewish or Gentile, who knew him, had no idea prior to the murder that he was anything like he turned out to be.
