The Anti-communist crusade of Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy came to a close in 1954 after his own committee shifted focus to investigate him for abusing army general Ralph W. Zwicker.

Although a resolution on July 30, 1954 by Ralph Flanders (Republican-VT) merely cited abuse of the general, 46 counts of misconduct were reviewed and summarized en route to the final censure vote on this day in 1954.
