When a politician bluffs, you can count on the other side investigating and fact-checking everything. Private investigation services are often used to call bluffs by providing evidence.
In a notable case, Martin Investigative Services performed an investigation that discovered 2 major factors that ended a local politician’s career.
A transcript of the video follows:
Many private investigators are often asked to do background investigations and surveillance on people running for political offices. One of the more memorable ones we had in the Los Angeles area was a gentlemen who was actually on video tape on a local television station kind of chastising the other side for thinking that he was anything but who he was and saying “catch me if you can, I am not doing anything wrong.”
So the other side engaged our services and what we found out was really interesting.
One, his home where he was living was actually not even in the district that he was running in which is a clear violation. The bigger issue was that we caught him with another woman who had two small children and he actually set up a house where he was the head of the family.
So, once we got our reports together and showed the video tapes to the other side, that was taken to this gentleman and that ended his political career.
