Myra Fermin's campaign manager Cobb suggests Myra make a deal with plastic weapons manufacturer, Alexander Polys. Vic tries to dissuade her.

As the Question, he shadows her political opponent in the hope of finding evidence that Dinsmore is a racist bigot with links to the Klan. He fails to find concrete evidence.

Next, he looks for proof that Polys provided weapons to Robert Leroy Parker -- aka Butch Cassidy. The question locates a taxi driver named Augie Lumberg who gave ride to Polys and Parker.

Cobb sends a killer to murder the driver to preserve the potential deal with Myra, but the Question intervenes. There's a casualty in the battle however, as the slightly nutty Lumberg's blow-up doll catches a bullet in the head.

Sage manages to repair the doll, as Myra decides on her own to reject Polys' offer.
