That Fiorello La Guardia was running was not in doubt. ” The answer presented itself one night in late summer 1914. By chance—Fiorello would later call it “serendipity”—he was in the Republican club room of the Twenty-fifth Assembly District. The “boys” were filling in petitions for the party’s nomination for Congress in the Fourteenth District. Because no Republican had ever been elected there, whoever ran was sure to lose, so the nomination meant nothing. Unable to think of anyone who might be willing to fill the role of sacrificial lamb, the “boys” sat and stared.

Encouraged by an impressive showing with virtually no party support, La Guardia began planning for the 1916 elections. Based on the near-miracle of 1914, he believed that he’d earned a share of Republican patronage. The post he asked for was “appraiser,” with a yearly salary of $4,000. It went to someone else. Offered a lower-paying deputy’s position in the office of the attorney general in New York City, he saw it as a means to keep himself politically alive. He accepted the offer. In taking the post he understood that all the important work of the attorney general was handled in the capital, Albany.

Under Italian and American regulations, no passenger ship could sail without a signed certification of health. The official whose signature they needed was Fiorello La Guardia. One day, feeling irate at the prospect of immigrants crossing the Atlantic only to be sent back, he marched aboard a Cunard liner that was scheduled to depart that day and informed the captain that the ship wasn’t going anywhere until all immigrants were examined. Furthermore, he declared, the costs of the health checks would be billed to Cunard and the price of tickets for those who were not allowed to sail must be returned.
