Christina had been tracking Reverend Ripoff for years, in her job as an investigative journalist, she had encountered some slimy people, but this guy beat them all.
A few years ago a viewer had told her about a shady charity that was run by Rev. Rip that was taking donations and government grants for inner city education programs. Instead of providing state of the art computers for the kids to use at the community center, Rev. Rip’s stooges provided some decrepit old transistors that could barely add.
Christina had chased the money trail back to Rev. Rip, and it looked like his innocent followers were footing the bill for a string of four star hotel stays and a garage full of fancy cars. But, he was careful, he chose destinations far away from his flock, where nobody knew his name. He tipped generously, so that he could hustle out the back entrance at the first sign of a camera crew or private detective.
Rev, Rip was slick, he used accounting loopholes that upheld to the letter of the law, so the feds could not do anything. Christina knew that the only way to inform his donors know his true nature was to catch him on tape.
Christina’s cameraman was thrilled to test out a new gadget. It was a wristwatch with a hidden camera and built-in dvr. He hooked it up so it would send a strong video signal back to the news van or a nearby hotel room.
That week Christina trailed the Rev. to a luxury golf resort. All she had to do was to stay nearby to get footage of the Rev. in compromising acts.
Because she stayed in public places, she was not violating anyone’s privacy. And she got more than she bargained for when she caught the married Rev. sucking face with one of the bar staff.
Whether or not it was enough to convict him of fraud, it did make a big splash on Christina’s newscast.
The Rev. abandoned hie usual public lecturing in favor of a more practical “no comment.”
A few months later he packed up and left town.
Christina’s station helped raise enough money for some nice computer systems for those kids – who also learned a lesson in integrity.
