Kenneth J. Minnaert Center Black Box
This humor filled tale of political corruption, ingratitude and revenge concerns an idealistic young Washington attorney who persuades her former law professor, a man of lofty rhetoric, to circle that includes a leering, power drunk senator and a slinky Southern power broker. When the heroine is snubbed by the politically powerful at a fancy restaurant, her hurt feelings precipitate an all-out- war. She promotes a sex scandal that unexpectedly makes her the darling of the religious right.
