The team is asked to speak to a California Assemblyman about is vote on a bill to fund pre-kindergarden education. Accosting one of his aides in a bar lead to a meeting with the Assemblyman in which it was revealed that his son had been kidnapped by people opposing the bill forcing him to vote against the position he had been paid to hold. Investigation revealed that the group in question was most likely a Southern California cult that operated a number of private pre-kindergarden schools.
The team attacked the leader of the cult — The Exalted Arhat Kesava Jacobs — outside of his mansion near Topanga canyon. After taking him captive and evading police they successfully traded him for the kidnap victim.
