A couple of us went in to talk to the boss about a plan just submitted that morning and he actually had to reach into the trash can for it. At least he had the grace to say that he must have knocked it off the corner of his desk.
Surprise, surprise, the plan wasn't accepted.

The "political reasons I can't share" is a great example of plausible deniability.
