Over the years, he starts misusing municipal funds with the aid of the City Treasurer. In 1871, the Great Chicago Fire rebounds to a stock market crash, prompting him to be bankrupt and exposed. Although he attempts to browbeat his way out of being sentenced to jail by intimidating Mr. Stener, politicians from the Republican Party use their influence to use him as a scapegoat for their own corrupt practices.
