After Plunkitt losing to Tammany on the election, he got very serious about obtaining a job. He was always trying to help people who were in need, just so he could get to know all the people in the district. He became very patriotic about the fact that he had to have a job. He was even able to get some votes, after doing all this work. He wasn’t forced to do it, but as I said before he yearned for a job. So, we can conclude that Plunkitt was crazy for a job.
