Oh my...you cannot make this stuff up! In a previous post this week, I talked about a fellow named George Damado, who has confirmed yesterday that he plans to run for Calgary Mayor in 2010.
In a strange twist, Dadamo was forced to fire a key campaign organizer just hours before the official news conference to announce his candidacy for mayor! It would appear that his campaign organizer, Joshua Bredo has quite the controversial background. George Dadamo confirmed that he never did a background check on this chap. I find this odd as George's early campaign marketing strategy has been to flood the Internet with marketing ideas and capitalize on social media. This tells me that George or his team is actually computer literate, so why not run say....a quick Google search?
Well a quick Google search under Joshua Bredo comes up with an easy result as noted on the link.
What is the lesson we can learn here from George? Perhaps it is that you cannot just throw your hat into the political ring on a "whim". His rush to get organized and to make a name for himself has backfired. While we all make mistakes, this lack of judgement and planning has destroyed a lot of his credibility and diminished any goodwill media that he would have encountered following his official announcement.
Looks like he got "Dadamo-ed".
