It was also the first election in which all women could vote and to have its results broadcast by radio. The Ku Klux Klan incited hatred against Catholics, blacks, and Jews, prohibition took effect, the Palmer Raids arrested more than 6,000 radicals, authorities charged Sacco and Vanzetti with murder, political terrorism first invaded lower Manhattan when a bomb rocked Wall Street, Socialist presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs garnered nearly a million votes -- from his Atlanta jail cell, and both major party campaigns exploded with sex scandals.--Adapted from dust jacket."@en ;
