Chapter One ended with Willie Stark giving Jack Burden the assignment of finding something corrupt  about Judge Irwin, something that might change Irwin's mind about supporting MacMurfee's  candidate for the Senate or that might be used in some other way against Irwin if he continues to  support Callahan.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
