You know the mood in the country has soured when a music video depicts a major label pop star being involved in a successful plot to "eliminate" a crooked U.S. Senator. Amerie plays a sultry secret agent charged with using her feminine wiles to lure the target to a secluded grassy knoll where the deed can be done.
