It's on the streets. Chicago's favorite political mover and shaker, Eli Gold has found himself in the crosshairs of the Feds. The Department of Justice is more determined than ever to get their man after their corruption case fell flatter than Jennifer Lawrence managing a staircase on international TV. (We kid, J-Law! And we love you! Call us!) Adding fuel to the flames, political gossiper journalist Petra Moritz from the Vindicator released a scathing piece on the "corrupt" Mr. Gold.

Faced with additional public scrutiny, Gold has stepped away from Peter Florrick's campaign. When your record is seen as sullying the guy who slept with hookers, it's safe to say you've been playing some pretty dirty politics. But is this gambit by Eli Gold to protect his rising star too little too late? Readers, share your comments below.
