As October opened, Nast drew Tweed pushing back, perpetrating voter fraud and threatening those who threatened him. The Boss suffered no more than a little indigestion from the erupting scandal.
As the 1871 municipal elections approach, Nast portrays Tweed as unworried. He will make sure his people count the votes, and then what are going to do about it?
And Tweed's artifice will lead to Democrats' victories.
As life for Tweed grows more uncomortable, Nast gives him and his cronies indigestion.
So Tweed turns up the heat, making serious threats to fend off tha law..
