FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
(with permission from Eccles)
Senator Soygun York has been arrested and sits under investigation of violating the agreed policy and rules of the FWA. He is accused of leaking a highly sensitive document that could cause political chaos across the galaxy and prevent the FWA from reaching an amiable agreement with Emryc Thorne and his federation of independent systems.
York's problems are vast. First, he has created a wealth of enemies in the Senate, but has not developed friendships with anyone with enough pull to help his case. Second, he is guilty. He did well to plan the leak so that there was no direct evidence to him, but there are enough Senators and people in high positions to keep him sidelined or in custody until the investigation is complete. Because York took great care in how he leaked the document to the press, the investigation could continue indefinitely.
That is, unless there is evidence that someone else is responsible. That will require some creative maneuvering since it will have to be manufactured and planted. York, through his private attorney, has agreed to gift an off the law enforcement grid luxury hideout- an entire floor of his new luxury resort in Kattada that just finished construction. York has guaranteed that it will be completely untraceable from his end as ownership of the floor will be in the name of someone with zero ties to the 5S or their associates. It's all there if they can get York exonerated. The goal is to plant damning evidence on another senator, get significant leverage on him or her, and get that senator to confess to a crime he did not commit.
THREAD 1- An Electronic Plant
The Senator for Humbarine, Victola Maroo, has a reputation as a bit of a troublemaker. He stirs the pot, drops a proverbial grenade, and then likes to watch the carnage. He makes the perfect mark for someone who would leak such sensitive information knowing the turmoil it would cause. The Senator also has become quite chummy with one of his female aids. They often meet discreetly at cheap motels to avoid being seen together. While Maroo is moonlighting with one of his aids, sneak into his Coruscant apartment, and either slice into his senate datapad and plant electronic evidence against him that shows he was the leak or switch his senate datapad with a twin, one that has already been sliced. This will require a small team of two or three associates. One to slice or plant the datapad and at least to one stand guard.

Status: COMPLETE- CUE BORAT- GREAT SUCCESS! - In addition to planting the evidence on Maroo's datapad, they also planted a lot of embarrassing and lewd communication between him and other women. His mistress showed up to chew him out for cheating on him with a new mistress, and she was used to take sultry pictures in his apartment, her prints were placed all over his apartment, then she was murdered and the senator was framed for it. Her body is currently hidden, nobody else knows she's been murdered, but it should be more than enough leverage to get Maroo to admit to being the leak.
THREAD 2- No Kidding Around
Maroo will fight the accusation viciously and any investigation if it goes long enough could uncover the truth. The easiest way to put this issue to bed is to get a confession. What we need is serious leverage over Maroo. With Maroo in Coruscant, his wife and child are relatively unprotected back home. An entire going missing would be noticed, but if one of Maroo's three children were to be kidnapped, we would have all the leverage we need. We will need a team to go to Humabrine, kidnap one of Maroo's children, and make it very clear to Mrs. Maroo that it would be best in her child's best interest for Mom to keep quiet until she hears from the Senator. A team of two to five should be able to complete this mission. A pilot and a ship will be needed.

THREAD 3- Coming to an Understanding
The leverage against Maroo is significant. Maroo needs to be informed of what he needs to do which is to confess to a crime he did not commit. Maroo is one self-centered individual, and it's possible that he may need some convincing to follow through on his end. Make sure that he understands just how important this is for his own health and safety, as well as that of his child. He also needs to understand that if he ever insinuates that his confession came under duress, the consequences will be unimaginable. Get him to confess to leaking the document to the press publicly and quickly. This could probably be handled with two or three intimidating fellows. Please read the mission results to of thread 1 and 2 for the appropriate leverage!

Status: COMPLETE! ROUSING SUCCESS!!!to
The trio of of Tal, It0, and Sal were able to get the Senator to see some reason. He gave a solid confession and appears to be scared enough to not cave to police questioning should they ask him because Sal has his datapad with the planet evidence for his affairs and murdering one of his mistresses in his apartment. Furthermore, they were able to do the convincing without leaving marks on the visible parts of Maroo's body, so there shouldn't be any suspicious sores or obvious injuries that would indicate he confessed after being tortured.
Due to mission 3 being a success, the mission pack was a success!
General Notes: Members of all families can sign up. This opportunity was originally presented the Zaa Fenn Crime Family. Threads one and two han happen simultaneously. Thread three likely has to take place after the events of threads one and two.
Intent: Plant damning evidence against a sitting NPC senator and get the 5S a luxurious place to hideout, meet, or cut deals with zero paper trail for the law to follow.
