A 98-year-old woman wants a federal judge to vacate her 1950 Red Scare conviction after newly unsealed court papers show she was railroaded.
"I want to clear my good name," Miriam Moskowitz told the Daily News Tuesday. The conviction "made my life very difficult, and sent it off in another direction entirely."
Her Manhattan federal court suit asks a judge "to correct a miscarriage of justice from the McCarthy era, of which Ms. Moskowitz is perhaps the last living victim."
Moskowitz's arrest was a front page story in the News in 1950 - "Nab Man, Woman in Spy Plot," the paper blared.
But the secretary said she didn't know anything about the alleged atomic espionage plot between her boss Abraham Brothman and his associate Harry Gold.
