Part 36: A piece of fallout of the 2834 scandals

The local Earth district senator and steering committee member was not available for comment in the wake of Ji-Min Kim's heroic whistleblowing.

In fact he was not available at all, as law enforcement broke into his residence to find it hastily abandoned. A hard drive containing further incriminating evidence of the Social Democratic Party's wrongdoing as well as some downright disturbing Sakkran footage was found on the premises.

In what would become a small blemish in an otherwise promising new chapter for Humanity, administrative officials forgot to remove him from the ballot in the upcoming elections. Enough uninformed voters in the carefully gerrymandered district cast their ballot to allow the incumbent to narrowly win the election, leaving the particular Earth district's seat vacant and empty in the new Galactic Federation.
