Senator Francis Bennett—or “Benny,” as he prefers to be called—is one of only a handful of black senators currently serving in the Senate, which makes him a popular senator to be photographed with. Benny and Jack became friends when they first met as roommates during their freshman year of college. Jack’s pomposity was only rivaled by Benny’s wikipedic knowledge of 80’s cinema. He loves science fiction, video games, and any album that debuted on the top 40 as a cassette (particularly old-school hip-hop). His hobbies include legislating. Yes, he’s been called “Senator Benator,” and no, he doesn’t like it.
