Joseph McCarthy – In February 1950 Senator R McCarthy, a Wisconsin Republican, charged that there were scores of known communists in the State Department. He proved utterly unable to substantiate his accusation, and was soon dismissed as a radical, although he did have a significant following during his peak.
