  • Allusions

    • Lamont gives Fred a present to celebrate his new position on the committee. He says the gift is something every politician needs. Fred gets a big laugh when he asks if the gift is Elizabeth Ray.

      Elizabeth Ray was at the center of a highly publicized sex scandal in 1976. She had been hired as a secretary for Congressman Wayne Hays, but her actual duties were not typing and filing. She was only required to provide the Congressman with sexual favors.
