Barbara -- or Bab -- Marvin (Corinne Griffith) is engaged to lawyer David Darrow (Webster Campbell). Darrow thinks that he would be a good politician, but Bab's father, Senator Marvin (George Fawcett) disagrees. Bab agrees with her pop, so she promotes the town's most notorious derelict as a candidate. He winds up winning the election, and Darrow figures that he should stick to law. That decided, the Senator gives his consent to the couple's marriage. This picture was based on a story by Forrest Crissey, which appeared in Harper's magazine.
