Dirty Politics Was Never Better ****, 2 October 2012
Author: edwagreen from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

What has the Attorney General done in office that merits him now running for governor of Illinois?

Go know who was behind that door that Kalinda was waiting for gun in hand. Imagine, he is also a client for Lockhart-Gardner. Go know that Will's 6 month suspension would lead the firm into a downward spiral where a trustee has to be assigned to the firm. Nathan Lane plays that person and he is an efficiency expert to boot.

Politics really gets dirty when Zack is picked up by the police on trumped up charges. How fortunate he is to have had his mother defend him in court and that dad-the attorney general- can get the cop to apologize and have this expunged from the youth's record.

Is it any wonder that Eli Gold has such a worried look on his face? Christin Chenowith comes across as churlish with her baby voice intonation.
