The West Wing: The Indians in the Lobby

On the eve of Thanksgiving day, Bartlet stresses over all things turkey, especially how to best cook a gourmet turkey. C.J. deals with two Native Americans who set up camp in the lobby waiting to meet with an official about public health projects on their reservation, and threaten to start a media bonanza if they don't get their meeting. Meanwhile, Josh tries to get a teenage boy who murdered his teacher extradited back to the U.S. from Italy; Sam works on the new poverty income index that could bring the President serious trouble; and Toby talks to Bartlet about ways to improve his poll numbers.

Episode Goofs
It's not plausable that Georgia, or any other state, would even consider giving a 13-year old the death penalty. Under the current law, no one under the age of 17 can receive the death penalty as a punishment.
