My favorite result of Self-Googling:
“Kempa, Adam of Detroit, Wayne County, Mich. Independent American candidate for U.S. Representative from Michigan 1st District, 1960; Independent American candidate for delegate to Michigan state constitutional convention from Wayne County 5th District, 1961. Still living as of 1961.” [link]
Further digging yields the following eerily applicable excerpt, from a summary of the September 12th, 1961 Michigan Constitutional Convention:
“Adam Kempa (Independent American), defeated.”
Bonus points to anyone who can tell me how to find anything else about this guy.
I found the following results page, showing the voting breakdown between the parties involved in this campaign. The Democrat won, the Socialist beat him.
