More Giambrone Humor, and Ashley Madison

He sort of announced that he has dropped out of the mayoralty race this morning, in a press conference that had him race from the lectern after some useless apologies, and send his executive assistant out to read the full statement. I am astonished that the clown thinks he can stay on as TTC chair. We shall see. It's not as if he could claim he has been doing a good job in any sense.
I am a bit sorry to see him go, as it would have been nice if there were a few Miller 2.0 candidates to split the stupid people's vote. But I did fear that he might have won, and I do not feel bad on that front.
But on a more amusing point, the TTC refused to carry advertising for the Ashley Madison web site, which is devoted to enabling affairs for married people. That company now believes that, given the behavior of the TTC chair, they have a case for appealing that decision.
Ashley Madison, the website designed to hook up attached clients with people outside their relationships, may again table its “Life is Short. Have an Affair” ad to the TTC in light of the Giambrone sex scandal.
“I just find it really ironic that only a few months ago, there was this huge uproar over the notion of us trying to assist the TTC and riders with extra revenue and now the TTC is in a big mess,” Ashley Madison CEO Noel Biderman said Tuesday.
In December, the TTC’s advertising review committee rejected Ashley Madison streetcar ads, contending they didn’t comply with community standards.
Biderman sympathizes with Giambrone, saying infidelity is just part of being human.
The world is too wonderfully funny at times. (Not for Giambrone, but he deserves what he's getting, and worse.)
