|Title||Chief of Staff|
|Affiliation|| John Prescott's|
2006 Congressional Campaign
|Pathology||Facilitator of murder|
Eric Lund was the Chief of Staff for New York Congressman John Prescott. Fiercely loyal to Prescott, he was notorious for ruthlessly attacking his boss' opponents. He was put on trial for leaking the name of the daughter of a rival, Senator Tom Baker, to reporter Veronica Drake. The daughter, Dana Baker, was an undercover cop with Manhattan North's Narcotics Division who was then in the process of infiltrating an Albanian drug cartel. The exposure of her identity led to her murder, and thus Lund was tried for manslaughter. He plead out to protect Prescott from further investigation from the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. (L&O:"Kingmaker")
- Lund is probably based on Scooter Libby, the former chief of staff for then-Vice President Dick Cheney. Like Lund, Libby was accused of leaking the name of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame to reporter Judith Miller, in an indirect act of revenge against Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, who had written an op-ed piece for the New York Times that dispelled the White House's claims that Saddam Hussein had attempted to purchase yellowcake uranium from Niger.
