Summary
Dan McGinty is a hungry hobo who wows the ballot-stuffers by voting 37 times in an election for Mayor. He immediately becomes the protege of 'The Boss,' who guides and schemes McGinty to Alderman, Mayor and ultimately Governor with a series of payoffs, kickbacks, and bribes. In trouble, McGinty flees the country and winds up (or down) as a bartender in a seedy Central American dive where the tale has a gleeful surprise ending
