The leeches congregated among the underground slime and dark sludge of InsolvenCity's water authority appear to have become aggressive. The solution would likely involve an investigative flashlight (controlled, this time, by someone other than the politically compromised, personally conflicted and morally bankrupt).

UPDATE: Rich Lord, Joe Smydo and Tim McNulty lack subpoena power, but they can be handy with flashlights, as if on cue.
UPPERDATE: Speaking of handy, InsolvenCity solicitor Dan Regan provides (inadvertently, we assume) a useful signal concerning the value of what follows when he introduces his legal opinion with "To our knowledge . . . "
