Congressman Richfield is giving his acceptance speech on the eve of his election as Governor of New York when bullets start to fly. The intended victim is missed, but not for long. His wild, irresponsible son stages his own kidnaping and a madame, turned FBI informant, is killed because she knows too much. When a bitter female reporter uncovers organized crime links in the Governor elect's background, the audience is sure it's on to the killer. But then diary notes and possible love interests surface. Who could it be? Certainly not Ms. Pinkbottom, the punctilious, loyal secretary to Mr. Richfield! A tough nosed detective dressed undercover in female garb tips his wig and takes over an investigation that is comical chaos at its best.
