Classic Chappie

While walking precincts for Ken Maddy of Fresno in Maddy’s uphill bid for the Assembly in 1970, then Assemblyman Bill Campbell of Hacienda Heights was told by fellow GOP Assemblyman Gene Chappie of Cool that he thought Maddy could pull it off.

“What gives you that idea, Gene-o?” Campbell said.

“Some guy just drove by and gave me half the V-for-Victory sign.”
