Mr. Philmore

Mr. Philmore is a minor character and a Stranger in Red Dead Redemption. He gives and appears in the Stranger side-mission "American Lobbyist".


He seems to be a local politician in favor of, and most likely employed by, the soon to be (in 1911, and, in 1914, current) governor, Nate Johns.

His character is a direct reference to the unceasing corruption from just before the start of the Civil War to the turn of the century. Local governments were bought and sold by wealthy persons as you would vegetables from a grocery store. A good example of the politics of the time would be Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall in mid-19th century New York, or similar to the politics seen in the Martin Scorsese film Gangs of New York.


He asks Marston to use blackmail photos to make a rival politician stand down from opposing the governor.
