Grover Cleveland issues a veto

Grover Cleveland (1837–1908) was President of the United States and holds the distinction of being the only man to do so for two non-consecutive terms, becoming the 22nd *and* the 24th President. Although a Democrat, Cleveland had a reputation as a reformer and attracted support from reform-minded Republicans during his first campaign, and when in office he fought against corruption and the patronage system. He retained respect for his character, despite the infamous 1883 campaign attack slogan "Ma ma, where's my pa?" over an illegitimate child.
