The ramifications of the hijacking are far reaching: It coincides with the murder of Chicago crime boss [["Big Jim" Colosimo]] and heralds the beginning of Torrio's dominance in Chicago; it causes a feud between Nucky and Rothstein that lasts for almost a year; and it causes Jimmy to go into hiding in Chicago. The hijacking also further damages the image of the [[Republican Party]] as the November [[1920 Atlantic City local election]] nears, and while the Republican prospects improve after Nucky replaces incumbent Mayor [[Harry Bacharach]] as candidate for construction businessman [[Edward Bader]] and his own brother [[Eli Thompson]] as [[Atlantic County Sheriff]] with Deputy [[Ray Halloran]], and presents the [[D'Alessio brothers]] as scapegoats for both Schroeder's death and the hijacking the day before voting, Thompson still has to recur to fraud to secure a Republican victory. This eventually leads to his arrest on February 13, 1921.
