    This guy took part in the rigging and attempted rigging of around 20 elections in Latin America in favour of right wing governments over the last ten years, often in league with JJ Rendon. Before anyone gets bored of the journalist early on like some of the article commentators, he not only used social media but also used smart phones and malware as vectors to infect the networks of campaign headquarters and tapped many presidential candidates and senior (or is that... SeƱor) advisors phones, as well as leaking many documents and correspondence. It's a pretty interesting look at different applications of black hat hacking to achieve non-monetary goals.
