Gamble reminds me of the New York State Attorney General (Candidate for Governor now)
Folks, we have the same Public Dis-servant problems here in the USA as you do.
Andrew Cuomo is the NY State Attorney General (running for Governor now) and from what I read in the Reg article and comments, Jim Gamble and Andrew Cuomo have a lot in common.
Both have made a career out of literally blackmailing Internet Service providers in the name of saving children from porn and paedophiles.
The result here in New York is that Cuomo made all the ISP's located in New York State take down access to newsgroup services (entirely, not just suspect NG's) and wanted them to sign a literal "confession" that these ISP's had been facilitating KP purveyors by providing customers access to news groups (that the ISP weren't even in control of, only provided access to).
If the ISP refused to comply with the ridiculous accusations, the NYS AG's office threatened to drag the ISP's corporation through a forensic examination of all of their servers and customer data to prove the ISP's were pornographers, not to mention the corporation's good name, and ruin their business through libel and slander in the newspapers.
ALL of this was political grandstanding to raise public (read voter) awareness of just how 'Righteous and Mighty" Cuomo was and how he is a "Champion of Child Protection on the Internet". Does that sound familiar? I thought so.
Yeah, Right....... I think he doth protest too much as the saying goes. If there is one thing I've learned, people like these don't have an altruistic bone in their bodies. Their motto is "Get ahead at any cost", including climbing over the dead, rotting carcases of anyone who gets in their way.
If history is any judge, this type of person also seems to have a lot in common with certain kiddie fiddling religious types. Typically they are above reproach, in a position of trust, spouting all manner of "Holier than thou" platitudes, until someone rattles their cage and the proverbial skeletons (or choirboys) fall out of their respective closets.
Enquiring minds need to know......
I can hardly wait until something falls out of either Gambles or Cuomos closet. Lookout Andy, Paladino's gonna shake your world (and your closet).
Honestly, I'll take Elliott Spitzer the Whoremonger over Sanctimonious Cuomo any day. Too bad he's on CNN instead of running for Governor.
BTW is that the same Sarah Bee I saw on CNN as our moderatrix on El Reg?
