As we told you Friday, we here at PhillyClout have always had an appreciation for the city's political relics. We suspect you feel the same way. So we want to help you get your hands on one.

Behold: The official City Hall office baseball bat of former nine-term City Commission Chairwoman Marge Tartaglione.

This very-well-used 34-inch Adirondack, left behind when Tartaglione left office this month, can be yours if you correctly answer three questions about her.

  1. In what year was Tartaglione arrested and accused of illegally moving voting machines?
  2. Tartaglione was referred to in the 1980s by some political wags as one of the city's three "Boom-Boom Sisters." Who were the two others?
  3. To whom did Tartaglione pose this question during a City Commission meeting: "Are you finished? Then wipe yourself."?
