Why was Plunkitt so open about how he made his money? There can be various reasons on why he was, maybe correct, maybe incorrect. Truth is we might never really know. One of the reasons I believe he was so open on telling how he got the money, was because he wanted everyone to know how the government worked. Maybe this was the reason why he didn’t get elected again. The point is that since he said that many of the things the government did was plunder, was the reason why he revealed the way he won the money.
