Census 'Fed' case inspires 'Law & Order'

By Ed O'Keefe

NBC's "Law and Order" used the recent investigation of the mysterious death of a Census Bureau worker as inspiration for an episode that aired Friday night.

Two of the show's detective find the body of a campaign volunteer with the word "Fed" written across his bare chest just days before Election Day. Watch the clip above for a sampling of the episode.

Census worker William Sparkman, 51, was found with the word "fed" scrawled across in chest in September. Officials concluded last month that Sparkman hanged himself, but staged his death to make it look like a homicide.

The episode also included a community activist organization modeled on Acorn and featured conservative activists who were trying to video inappropriate organizational activities. It had something for everyone, right and left.
