As Thomas Jefferson Johnson in The Distinguished Gentleman
In this 1992 comedy, a Florida con man uses the passing of a Congressman from his district, and a coincidence of names, to get himself elected to Congress. Washington D.C. looks like a conman's paradise, with endless money flowing from lobbyists. But he soon learns the nature of the game and decides to fight back the only way he knows how.
