Augie Blatz is a public relations expert. Having spent most of his young career setting up and maintaining a small fortune in ill-earned money, he recognizes the value of a positive public image, and does what he needs to do to come off as 'generous' and 'kind hearted' to the downtrodden public.
Building inner-city playgrounds, making sizable donations to various libraries and schools, as well as offering to cover hospital bills for those without insurance, Blatz is unmatched in his false generosity. Although accused of corruption, his fleets of lawyers are more than capable of sweeping such accusations under the carpet. The closest to Blatz receiving jail time was when Frank Slate was alive. Blatz proceeded to orchestrate Frank’s downfall, and Jack suspected Augie was involved in his father’s murder.
