Joe Biden To Make Appearance On Law & Order: SVU Episode

Current Vice President Joe Biden is the latest in a series of political figures (including the late Senator Fred Thompson, who actually became a regular on three of the Law & Order franchises), who will make a tv appearance. The White House has announced that the Veep (not to be confused with Veep's Selina Meyer) is in Gotham (not to be confused with Gotham) to film a cameo that will be part of an upcoming Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode (not to be confused with Law & Order, Law & Order:  UK, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: Trial By Jury, or Law & Order: LA. 

Although my tone in this post is a little flippant, the theme of the episode Mr. Biden will guest on is not. The episode will feature the backlog of untested rape kits that currently plagues a number of jurisdictions and thus endangers sexual assault prosecutions. Mr. Biden will play himself in a press conference in the episode, recognizing Olivia Benson's work in the area. More here from the Wrap, here from the CBC.
