I don’t know if it’s icing on the cake, but do you remember all the people calling out Gawker and John Cook for trying to pay a gang member for the Rob Ford video? Today he was sentenced to eight years after pleading guilty to trafficking in guns and cocaine.
Mohamed Siad had tried to sell the video to the Toronto Star and Gawker. As a result, the Toronto Mayor and his driver were put under surveillance. The driver has since been acquitted of drug charges, but he still faces trial for extortion from his attempts to retrieve the video.
