On the Bones episode “The Senator in the Street Sweeper,” two strange sanitation workers in Washington, DC discover the shredded body of a senator while on the job. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) go to Capitol Hill to investigate. They intend to get answers but it’s not easy getting the truth out of politicans, especially US Senator and majority whip Hayley Winters.
Senator Hayley Winters is portrayed by Brenda Strong. She’s been on tons of TV shows including Cheers, Dallas, Twin Peaks, Murphy Brown and ER. But she’s best known for her recurring roles on Party of Five (Kathleen Isley), Seinfeld (Elaine’s braless friend Sue Ellen), Sports Night (Sally Sasser), 7th Heaven (Marsha Palmer), and last but not least Desperate Housewives (Mary Alice Young). Bones airs Thursdays at 8pm on FOX.
