Senator James Woolsey is a politician who appears as the main antagonist in Gangstar: West Coast Hustle.


Woolsey is a senator and a candidate for the new major of Los Angeles. He is a friend of Elenita and has got a relationship with the supermodel Alexis. When Pedro hears that Elenita has a friend who is a senator, he can't wait to meet him because he thinks that Woolsey could have some information about Juan's murderer.

Close to the end of the game, Pedro meets Woolsey "officially", even though he had to drive him and Alexis around the city for Leatherskin Butcher before. Woolsey wants Pedro to do some missions for him, which include taking pictures of his enemies to ruin them.

Later, Woolsey wants Pedro to kill a rival candidate for the major of L.A.. He sends Pedro to the roof terrace of a house where El Toro is waiting for him to ambush him. After Pedro has killed his former boss, he realizes that it had to be Woolsey who led him into the ambush and therefore also killed Juan. Pedro is furious and phones Elenita to find out where Woolsey went. Elenita tells him that he is at the city hall. Pedro drives there. He has a short phone call with L.C., who wants to warn him that Woolsey is dangerous, but Pedro doesn't care. He points his weapon at Woolsey who is coming out of the building. Woolsey and his men run off to their car and drive away. Pedro enters a nearby car to chase them. After a while, Woolseys car stops at the graveyard. Now, there are a lot of men coming at Pedro, including corrupt police officers, but he wipes them all out. Then, he and Woolsey confront each other face to face and Pedro shoots the senator down, killing him. Then, he leaves the graveyard.

It isn't told why Woolsey killed Juan. But it could be because he was afraid that somebody of his rivals could use Pedro and Juan to kill him.
