The subject of the case from the files of your FBI is illegal gambling. In the United States, illegal gambling is big business. One bookmaker, back in 1950, admitted to a gross take of 20 million dollars in a single year - and he was merely one of hundreds. With such sums of money at their disposal, sooner or later the men who control the host rooms, gambling houses, and the numbers racket, move in and attempt to control the political machine, with bribes attempting to sty the hand of a conscientious police officer.
