At a Pawnee Government Event, Leslie ends up doing a hilarious bit about Councilman Dexhart's indiscretions that accidentally tell the truth about a new sex scandal that's about to erupt. He calls a secret meeting with Leslie at a bar and when the two are spotted meeting, the tabloids and news goes nuts with the story and declares them an item. Dexhart decides that a scandal with clean-cut Leslie would be better than the true story of knocking up his babysitter and sleeping with four nurses. Ron makes Leslie take the day off and she goes on the news to tell her side of the story, only to have the councilman surprise her on the show and to lie and claim the story to be true. Eventually Leslie proves her innocence by mooning the host and showing her butt has no mole.
Meanwhile, Ron and the rest of the Parks staff (plus Mark) attempt to cover for Leslie and realize even with dividing into teams of two, there's way too much to cover.
Oh and in terrible news, officer Dave (Louis CK) got called into active duty by the military and asked Leslie to come with him. We're going to miss him.
In happier relationship news, April asked Andy for gift advice to give her gay boyfriend and they had some adorable flirting. Tom, meanwhile, gave Mark some unsolicitied gift giving advice, but he seemed to do just fine on his own by giving her a laptop bag and NOT making her go with him to a game.
