Goofs

The Senator asks Hooker if he's going to vote for him, and Hooker said he did last year. U.S. Senators serve 6 year terms, so absent some type of special election , Hooker could not have voted for an incumbent the prior year. This may have been due to Hooker like most Americans lacking knowledge as to how the U.S. political system works. See more »

Quotes

Senator Stuart Grayle: [Title drop] There's not a hell of a lot of difference between politics, police work, they're both blood sports.
