Video: Hollywood Star Stumps for D.C.

The D.C. Notebook told you in February that "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere promised to do work with D.C.'s shadow senator Paul Strauss on voting rights issues. Now she's delivered, filming a commercial with Strauss that will begin airing tomorrow on the D.C. government's two cable channels (Ch. 13 and 16).

The way Strauss tells it, he ran into Panettiere on Capitol Hill, where she was stumping for Save the Whales Again. She began lobbying him, but he informed her that D.C. does not have a vote. Panettiere was, according to Strauss, surprised and outraged enough to lend a hand. Fortunately, Hollywood stars apparently have camera crews following them around--or at least she did--and they shot the deal right there, Strauss said.
