I’m not going to go into it in detail and I am certainly not going to provide a link, but some asshole named Jordan Sargent just ruined a private citizen’s life for nothing more than revenge and clicks. Basically, a married man (who is wealthy and connected) was attempting to arrange a tryst with a male escort in Chicago. The escort found out who the man was, and then attempted to blackmail the man to apply political pressure on a HUD appeal he was working on regarding his housing situation. The man said he couldn’t help him, backed out of the tryst, paid the escort anyway. The escort then went to Jordan Sargent at Gawker with copies of their text messages, and basically Sargent decided “HELL YEAH I WILL HELP YOU BLACKMAIL HIM.” So now a man has been outed for not acting unethically, his marriage might be ruined (who knows, she may know he is bi and is ok with him doing this when he is out of town), and his kids are going to have this crap thrown at them.
It’s the most disgusting thing I have ever seen on the internet and I read the Daily Caller and have read Chuck Johnson’s GOTNews.
I am now actively rooting for Hulk Hogan to win his lawsuit against Gawker and Nick Denton. Just despicable.
