Washington Merry-Go-Round Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this political melodrama, an idealistic freshman congressman swears to do his best to get relief for his impoverished constituents who lost everything in the Great Depression. Unfortunately, he discovers that many of his colleagues have been corrupted by avaricious crooks. He begins lobbying to have them ousted from the government. To stop the rebellious young politician, the crooks demand a recount of the votes and then doctor the results to get the man thrown out of office. Fortunately, an older statesman and his granddaughter rally round the honest congressman. Soon they clear his name, and have all the bad apples thrown out of congress. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
