An incumbent Representative embroiled in personal scandal faces a no-holds-barred challenge from a naive newcomer funded by two unscrupulous billionaire lobbyist brothers.
Tim Wattley (Dylan McDermott) shares a name, although spelled differently, with a recurring character played by Bryan Cranston on Seinfeld (1989).

After Cam is arrested, a reporter approaches him and asks "You were charged with drunk driving. Is it true you blew a 1.4?" A BAC of 1.4 would almost surely be lethal; at the very least, Cam would surely have been hospitalized, not walking around talking with reporters. It's possible that the character simply misspoke, meaning instead to say 0.14 which is above the legal limit for driving in all states and a much more believable BAC value.
During the credits there is an additional scene depicting the trial with Motch brothers. The scene also partly explains the origins of Tim Wattley.
An Extended Cut running an extra 10 minutes is available on the Blu-ray. As well as inserting new scenes not seen in the theatrical cut, the drunk-driving scene plays out in a significantly different way. Cam has new dialogue as he steals the cop car, and he doesn't lose control and hit a cow - he realises what he's done, turns the car around (hitting a dumpster) and then drives back to the cop, who arrests him.
