Law and Order; Political Animal

This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Larry Craig sex scandal that came to light in summer 2007. Senator Craig was caught tapping his foot in a men's room stall in an airport bathroom, resulting in his arrest on a sexual misconduct charge.

Not the greatest, but still a good episode. With some twists and a few turns, the show was exactly what I have come to expect from Law and Order. The story starts out with three dead bodies, two of which are gay men. One of the murdered victims was tied to a politician, hence the twist of the story. But as anyone who watches this show knows, the first theory or the first guy is rarely the perpetrator.

A powerful scene was when a female politician, who had hired the political fundraiser (that is now implicated in the killings), asked that Jack McCoy make the case go away. Of course, my man Jack would not be swayed.
