‘House of Cards’ Star Decides ‘D.C. Is More Corrupt Than Hollywood’ After ‘Senior’ Obama Official Told Her This
Feb. 19, 2014 7:29pm Jason Howerton   

Actress Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood on the hit Netflix production “House of Cards,” proclaimed in a recent Q&A with Capitol File magazine that “D.C. is more corrupt than Hollywood.”

One of the details that caused her to arrive at such a conclusion reportedly came from a “senior person” in the Obama administration, who told her that — like on the show — reporters really do sleep with their D.C. sources.

That apparently wasn’t all she learned while researching what goes on in Washington, D.C., while researching her role as a powerful politician’s wife. She just didn’t reveal everything she was told.

“D.C. is more corrupt than Hollywood. It really is. It’s more sleazy than Hollywood… how much infidelity goes on,” Wright said.

The entire second season of “House of Cards” was released exclusively on Netflix last week and has received very positive reviews.

Watching this show, you could not doubt that whitewater was REAL LOL   And watching Scandal is creepy too, they dispose of bodies that officials have killed, ala Vince Foster.

That is why I said on another thread, that these might as well be documentaries. LOL

Hollywood and D.C. may be equally corrupt, but it's what goes on in D.C. that more directly adversely affects all of us.
Just being unique doesn't make you useful.

I have an attorney friend who was a DC lobbyist in the 80's and 90's.  She said DC was a cesspool, even back then, and that the House of Cards depiction is pretty accurate.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
