Who? non-Michigan residents may ask. Well, McCormack's a founder and co-director of the Michigan Innocence Clinic, a professor at the University of Michigan Law School and, most relevantly to the video below, sister to "In Plain Sight" star Mary McCormack, who played Deputy National Security Adviser Kate Harper on "The West Wing." According to the Washington Post:
Mary called [Allison] Janney and [Bradley] Whitford, her closest friends from “West Wing,” and asked them to do a campaign video. “They said ‘sure’ and it spiraled from there,” said McCormack. Others signed on to reprise their old roles: Richard Schiff, Joshua Malina, Janel Moloney, Lily Tomlin and Melissa Fitzgerald. “I think it’s a testament to their good will and good friendships,” the candidate said. In early August, McCormack found herself in a nondescript office building in Los Angeles with the Emmy-winning actors. Veteran TV writer John Cockrell wrote the script; Mary’s husband, producer Michael Morris, helped with editing.
