Wormwood's eyes widened, then he pretended everything is normal again.
His thoughts raced as he took course. That is an opportunity if he ever saw one. But what to do?
Talk to him? Maybe steal something while he is distracted?
Well, here goes nothin', he thought, then approached him.
"Hello? Excuse me, do you have a moment? "

The man stopped, along with his entourage. "I have a spare minute, do you need help?"

Wormwood positively beamed at him.
"Thank you, that is so nice of you!
I am going to be honest and straight: I want to ask a favour of you.
I've always been interested in writing and in NYC's politics so it seemed logical to apply at a newspaper. That's basically begging for poverty nowadays, but I love my job. However, if I do not have something to report soon, the job will be given to someone else."

"The hell am I doin' here?!" he thought.
"I wanted to ask you if, maybe, I could get a visitor's pass and get a tour of the office building? I would like to write about the inner workings of our system and the general morale of our finest. Maybe talk to one or two of them, small interview á la 'What is you motivation in the morning to get up and to work?' or 'Where do you think you help people the most?'.
I would certainly not get in anyone's way. You'd barely notice I am there. It would help me out immensely, and I' would make it a candid point that you are an open-minded, approachable man who takes an interest in the people and even takes the time to help out 'the little man'. "

He wore as hopeful an expression as he could, despite knowing the answer.
What politician would be swayed by such a pathetic attempt at persuasion?

The councilor paused for a moment, eyeing the 'reporter' with suspicion. "No, that is not it. What is the real story you are after?"

Wormwood sighed.
"Damn." He looked at the councilor, annoyed.
"If you get a pass and get in, you get to know the people." "Maybe I should get away from here", he thought.
"If you know the people, your well of information will never stop. I ain't talking boring politic stuff here. Theft, fraud, incompetence, infidelity, that's where its at. Do you know how well a story sells that is about the people taking our tax money? Nothin'. But if they screw up, do something wrong ? " He held up 3 fingers. "Not like you'd have lost anything by it. I mean, who wants to work with criminals and idiots? Except if you've got some dirt on yourself, of course." He shook his head and started to walk away.

The councilman smiled "Well, I sadly can't help with that." he said loudly "However I may have something you can do." he said in a hushed tone. "If you would like to join me in my office I have a proposal for you."

Wormwood arched his eyebrow slightly.
"shame." He said aloud.
" When?" He asked quietly.

Wormwood nodded and said
"Well, Thank you for taking the time" and Broke away from them, heading for one of the baristas.
Properly paranoid, he wondered briefly if this might be a trap, then decided it doesn't matter since it was too good of a Chance to Pass up.
He bought one of those desserts passing for Coffee nowadays. Glorious times.

It wasn't long, 15 minutes exactly and the councilors assistant, or at least one of them was meeting Wormwood in the lobby and escorting him up to the office.

"Now I can't just let you go running around the office, however I can turn a blind eye and point you where you need to be." The councilor smiled "Melissa Mark-Viverito" She was the Speaker as well as Councillor for the 8th district, democrat of course. "Rumor is she has been accepting bribes to support some of the... less favorable cases."

Wormwood eyes went wide, then he smiled.
"I can work with that. Is there anything else you can give me? Like who had that money originally? Or a timeframe for how Long that might have been going on?"
