It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

Joseph Stalin Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin (born Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili in Georgian or in Russian patronymic nomenclature Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili; 18 December 1878 - 5 March 1953) was the first General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union's Central Committee from 1922 until his death in 1953. In the years following Lenin's death in 1924, he rose to become the leader of the Soviet Union.

Stalin launched a command economy, replacing the New Economic Policy of the 1920s with Five-Year Plans and launching a period of rapid industrialization and economic collectivization. The upheaval in the agricultural sector disrupted food production, resulting in widespread famine, such as the catastrophic Soviet famine of 1932-1933, known in Ukraine as the Holodomor.

John Wentworth "Long" John Wentworth, whose nickname was inspired by his stature (6'6", 300 lbs.)started out as managing editor of the Chicago Democrat, later to become owner and publisher. He served six terms as an Illinois Representative to the U.S. House of Representatives, from 1843 to 1851 as a Democrat, and from 1853 to 1855 as a Republican. It seems fair to speculate that his party change was due to his personal friendship with Abraham Lincoln.

Wentworth served two terms as Mayor of Chicago, in 1857/1858 and again in 1860/1861. I cannot be sure which campaign it was that inspired this utterance.
