The team must go up against Congress to stop a competitive cheerleading company that puts its students at risk.
An injured cheerleader named Marcie and her coach, Heather Cornell, who want cheerleading to be made safer for the cheerleaders.
PEP Athletics and their CEO Wendy Barron, who control competitive cheerleading and write the safety standards to be inexpensive, but do not protect the participants.
The action takes place in Washington DC, in Congress and at PEP's cheerleading camp prior to a competiton.
The main con is to get Congress to pass a law making cheerleading a sport, not an activity, since as a sport, proper safety standards can be imposed.
Episode Notes Edit
this Episode involves Parker caring about other people,
- After one of Parker's aliases (Alice White) is called for jury duty, Nate forces her to attend to learn how to follow instructions and consider other people. While there, she notices some strange things at the trial. It seems someone is trying to buy a favorable verdict, but not if the Leverage team can steal it first.
- The legality alerts that Hardison puts on Pep companies are actually just strings of random words.
