|Info||Edmund V. Bobrowicz (May 1, 1919 - March 13, 2003) was an American politician from the state of Wisconsin. |
Bobrowicz was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the son of Polish immigrants. He served in the Army during the Second World War, in the South Pacific. In 1946, Bobrowicz (then working as a union organizer) ran successfully for the Democratic nomination for Wisconsin's 4th congressional district, ousting incumbent Representative Thaddeus Wasielewski.
Before the election, however, Bobrowicz was accused by the Milwaukee Journal of secretly being a Communist and was subsequently expelled from the Democratic Party. Wasielewski, hoping to prevent a Communist from taking his seat, re-entered the race as an Independent, but the two politicians split the Democratic vote and allowed Republican John C. Brophy to win.
Bobrowicz subsequently left politics and became a union official. He later moved to Green Bay, where he died in 2003.
