CUT TO TITLE
Mark is frantically pacing around the room when his wife Evelyn (Evelyn Claire) comes home. Mark is very uneasy as he chats with her. There’s obviously something troubling him. Finally, he takes a deep breath and confesses to Evelyn that he cheated on her. Evelyn grits her teeth with anger. She asks Mark if ANYONE knows about this. He admits that Codey (Codey Steele), a reporter, contacted him, telling him that he knows what happened. Mark’s indiscretion will be splashed all over the front page of every newspaper in the country soon.
Evelyn grows determined, saying that SHE’LL take care of it.
There’s no WAY she’s going to let Mark’s infidelity cost them the election. She’ll go see Codey and convince him not to run with the story, using ALL the persuasion techniques she has in her repertoire…
