Cincinnati profiles Jon Saylor, a young politician, who has induced illegal voting and election falsification "to win a seat on the Fairfield city council." The report details the circumstances surrounding Saylor's crime and conviction. The story points out that Saylor "could have - well, did - win the election of his own," as he "had everything you'd want in a politician: intelligence, charm, dedication and the right connections." The magazine features the question: "Why would a young man sink to such depths...?" Saylor's explanation: "I let my pride make a crook out of me."
