Season 7[edit | edit source]
In March 2020, Mayor Richard Splett exposes several high-ranking Iowa politicians, including the Lieutenant Governor, for taking money from a large pesticide corporation. After the Lieutenant Governor is arrested, Ballentine appoints Richard as his new Lieutenant Governor.
Ballantine immediately sidelines Richard, piling him down with pointless assignments and telling him that he will never become Governor.
The next month, Ballentine visits Jonah Ryan in New Hampshire to inquire about possibly becoming Agriculture Secretary. After Jonah acts increasingly rude towards him, he leaves, visibly annoyed.
Shortly afterwards, Ballentine contracts shingles, which leaves him paralyzed and blind. He is forced to resign, and Richard Splett is sworn in as Governor of Iowa.
