Plunkitt By Nathan Sullivan The story of Plunkitt of Tammany Hall is a very strange one. He talks about how the things that they do is legal and fair when they are clearly just loopholes in the law. He says that the only reason that someone wont steals as a political is because there was nothing to steal. It was this oddball man that was pulling in must of the votes for New York. This man talks of how to look for human nature in the early parts of this book. However what he means by this is basically how to use and play with people’s emotions. The way that he uses kids to influence their parent’s votes is almost disgusting, along with how he will use the things that people enjoy doing and give them something if they promise to vote for him. These every day people are not the only ones that he takes advantage of, he will more than happy take care of the poor merely because they will vote for him and they will tell their friends to do the same. They way that he sees people only as a way to get what he wants is a thing that can make a person sick yet unsurprised
