Sigh. A few days late and what will ultimately prove to be millions of dollars short.
Two days after corruptocrat Terry McAuliffe won the governorship, tabloid site Gawker finally decided to acknowledge that yes, Virginia, McAuliffe is a “sleazebag”:
Meet Virginia's new sleazebag governor. http://t.co/MYj1FkRTfJ

Tweeters couldn’t help but wonder why Gawker didn’t think this was worth knowing before Election Day:

That’s right. Mother Jones also took its sweet time with its McAuliffe exposé.
It was smart of Mother Jones to save this for election day. Wouldn't want to *actually* hurt The Macker: http://t.co/s3rOCiB3Gn

At least Mother Jones didn’t wait until after the election was completely over, but this is still a major journalism fail. Did it ever occur to MoJo that voters really could’ve used this information before going to the polls?
Would have been nice to know this a couple weeks ago: http://t.co/JIXLncXbSC

Way to go, media hacks.
