Things I Like: Peter Russo (House of Cards)

Peter Russo House of Cards Netflix

Peter Russo was an interesting character on the show. At the start of the series, he’s a not so notable congressman from Pennsylvania. He’s mostly a liar and a semi-bad person. For one he tries to pretend like he’s good friends with the new president to gain some power.

He’s not much of a congressman either. He often fails to bring anything of worth back home to his people.

And Frank Underwood commits his first murder by leaving Russo to die in a garage full of carbon monoxide from a running car, after he proved to be far too much trouble for his own good. Frank sure regretted that one in the long-run.
