    What was the outcome and controversy over the 1824 election?

    A:

    The presidential election of 1824 led to the election of John Quincy Adams as the President of the United States, but it also raised concerns over corrupt bargaining. According to votes accumulated by the Electoral College, presidential candidate Andrew Jackson was the first-place winner, securing 99 votes and taking a lead, albeit narrow, over Adams. Determining the race too close to call, Henry Clay, speaker of the House of Representatives, was tasked with selecting a winner; his decision to seat Adams in the White House sparked concerns of corruption and favoritism and was met with criticism and outrage.
