Billy will call you and tip you off about a crooked politician named Thomas Stubbs III who needs some assistance with a job. Billy proclaims that they're moving up in the world and that his friendship with the lawyer is working out afterall, contrary to Johnny's previous beliefs. You'll be sent to Algonquin, specifically to an upscale club which has massages, saunas, etc. Completing the package is a fake-English-accent-using butler who will give Johnny somewhat of a rough time, demanding that he leaves the premises. Once he discovers you're here to pay Stubbs a visit, his demeanor completely changes and he shows you to the massage room where the politician is currently located. Once the masseuse and butler leave the room, Stubbs gets down to business. He wants you to go to Francis International Airport and shoot down a plane, one carrying his elderly and quite rich WASP uncle. Stubbs needs large amounts of money to guarantee his re-election, and his uncle's death will provide the funds necessary. He wants you to make it look like an act of terrorism on top of everything else, stating that this would be good for him in a number of ways.

Like a true crooked politician, Stubbs has you over a barrel here. He knows what Johnny's been up to and threatens to take him down if he doesn't perform this duty for him. Johnny eventually agrees to the deal. At this point, while watching the end of the cutscene, prepare to cut out your eyes and burn them - you'll see a full dong shot of Stubbs as he walks around the room completely nude. After this horrifying sight, you'll be told to arrive at a specific time to the airport. The time should be sufficiently long enough for you to get to the airport with reasonable time left. Once there, the guards realize you're up to no good and begin firing. Quickly, you pull out your RPG and hit the small plane just before touching down, killing Stubbs' uncle in the process. Once the plane's destroyed, you'll have a four-star wanted rating and the gate you came in through will be locked. Stubbs informs you in a text message that there's another gate - he's bribed the gate guard to let you out. Do so and your rating drops to two stars. Once evaded, the mission ends in success. Shortly thereafter you'll receive a panicked call from Johnny's "friend," Ashley. She needs your help immediately and you're thrust right into another mission.
