On this day in 1932, September 1, New York City mayor Jimmy Walker resigned his office due to a political scandal.

What does this have to do with music? Walker was a songwriter before he became mayor. His best-known song was "Will You Love Me In December as You Do In May," from which the term -"May-December" romance - meaning a romance between a younger man and an older woman or one between a younger woman and an older man -came.
