I have finished the research requested by the hopeful soon-to-be candidate. If I had the time and the inclination, I would take the material discovered during this research and see if it might offer enough of a foundation for a novel in the Political Intrigue category. Alas, I have no talent for political fiction.
This was not my first venture into this type of research and I have to admit that it is always fascinating. Running down all the story origins proved to me that there are a large number of ways to disguise the truth and promote untruths. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to do this type of research again.
