Christina had been tracking Reverend Ripoff for years. In her job as an investigative journalist, she had encountered some slimy people, but she always thought this guy beat them all.
A few years ago, a viewer had told her about a shady charity run by Reverend Rip that was taking donations and government grants for inner city education programs. Instead of providing state of the art computer systems for students to use at the community center, Reverend Rip's stooges some decrepit boxes of transistors that could barely add.
Christina had chased the money trail back to Reverend Rip, and it looked like his innocent followers were footing the bill fora string of four-star hotel stays and a garage full of fancy cars. But he was careful. He chose destinations far from his flock, where nobody knew his name. He tipped generously, so he could hustle out the back entrance at the first sign of a camera crew or a private detective.
Reverend Rip was slick, and he used accounting loopholes to uphold the letter of the law, so the feds couldn't do anything. Christina knew that the only way to help his deceived donors understand his true nature was to capture him on tape.
Christina's cameraman, Bill, jumped at the chance to test out a new gadget. “It," he said. “He hooked it up so that it could send a strong video signal back to their news van, or even a nearby hotel room.
That week, Christina trailed the Rev to a luxury golf resort. All she had to do was stay close by to capture footage of her target in compromising acts.
Because she stayed in public places, she wasn't 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 evidence to convict him of fraud, the footage did make a big splash on Christiana's newscast.
The Rev abandoned his constant public lecturing in favor of a more practical, "no comment."
A few months after he packed up and left town.
Christiana's station helped raise funds for a nice set of computers for those kids -- who also learned a lesson in integrity.
