Governor Smart was the Governor of Tracy’s state in 2007 and took part in a charity event where he, Smart and Dick Tracy spent the night in the haunted Hennessy mansion. Unknown to Tracy, Governor Smart owned the mansion and planned to have it demolished to make way for a super highway, making a pretty penny on the deal. While spending the night, the son of J. Tucker Hennessy, murdered years ago took Smart captive with the intent to kill him for his part in stealing the house from his late father. The son and Governor Smart may have been in league years before in a plot involving the deaths of
J. Tucker and his daughter Rachel Hennessy. The depths of the Governor’s involvement was unclear, but enough evidence was produced that Dick Tracy had the state Ethics Committee look into it.
