Pictured here voting with his wife, in 1950 Mayor Vincent Impellitteri, the 99th Mayor of NYC, was dumped by Democratic bosses and ran on his own ballot line, The Experience Party. Undaunted, Mr. Impellitteri made history becoming the first mayor of greater New York elected without the support of a major party. A true insurgent.           Source: Corbis
