Election Woes

Al helps the drunk Felicia make election phone calls only to be cast as a traitor.

It's election time, and Felicia is a campaign worker for Feather, who is running for alderman. Al is not thrilled with any of the candidates and is more concerned with his Help Alert clients. When Art and Olaf go to install a Help Alert, the client is having a Tea for Feather, and they're serving cherry juice. The two volunteers return to the office drunk. A few days later, Felicia is supposed to make campaign calls, but also gets drunk on the cherry juice. Al is called at home to install a unit that night, so he and Olaf go to the apartment and discover the drunk Felicia in the office next to it. They get inside and help make phone calls while Felicia sleeps when Olaf has the idea to tell callers to write in Al Calender. As he's making these calls, Feather, Brent, and another worker arrive and catch them. Art and Olaf insist that Al runs and signs him up for a debate. At the debate, Dick, the other candidate accuses Al of cheating. Al and Feather lose the election.
