Celia Jones meets with Jackie Sharp, urging Jackie to help push for funding for the new breast cancer clinic in her district. This is Claire's doing, as through Celia, she promises $3 million for Jackie's congressional campaign in exchange for pushing for federal funding to build the clinic. So Claire has co-opted Celia in her quest for power, playing on the altruistic nature of Celia's mother, Doris, and is attempting to wheel and deal in Washington without Frank's help, or knowledge. Leann assures Claire that Jackie will gladly accept the money, but should she get cold feet, Leann has arranged to blackmail Jackie — using photos of her rendezvous with Remy Danton for leverage. "They always use the same hotel. I've got a guy set up across the street," Leann tells Claire.
