He then becomes involved in the corrupt Chicago political machine and takes part in a scam to help Mike Scullythe political power of Packingtown, elect a Republican to the city council and to help retain his power. It also, however, led to a report issued the same year by the Department of Agriculture's Bureau of Animal Husbandry that refuted the worst of Sinclair's allegations.
