Control city politicians and manipulate laws in New York and beyond, in the new expansion pack City of Gangsters: Shadow Government.
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps
Prohibition showed how much power is accrued by politicians who pull the levers of government. Now imagine how much power you could have, if you in turn controlled those politicians.
It's going to be easier than it seems: politicians need votes, and votes cost money, so helping with either is a sure way to earn gratitude – and obedience. And during Prohibition, city council members are especially easy targets: as politicians they have great sway over city laws, but they're also small fry who are always hard up for cash. This is where you can make a big difference.
Use your profitable booze operations to finance successful election campaigns, and use your control over large swaths of the city to ensure high turnout of voters who know exactly which ballots to cast. With your vast resources, you will be able to catapult your chosen candidates to high office where they will do your bidding – or to install your own, hand-picked lackeys who will follow your every word.
Just make sure you're backing the right horses in the elections. Because if you lose, your opponents will remember.
