The dirt is the basis for all the gossip magazines and papers. They may find out data that may or may not be true and then plaster it all over their publications. I saw a show the other day about this very topic. Two college girls were running for class president. One girl was an unkind opponent. The second girl was all about good food including fresh fruits and vegetables for the cafeteria and the kiosks. The second girl was loosing when her brother, a knowledgeable computer expert, began digging into the unkind opponent’s life. He discovered that she was not exactly truthful about her past, her falsified schooling and experience. He also learned that when her father became sick, she nursed him until he passed. He presented all this to his sister who did verify the school data. She thought about it and realized that it would be wrong to win by exposing the dirt on her opponent. Needless to say, the unkind opponent won. After the election the unkind girl discovered that that her opponent had checked on her schooling. They met and the winner offered to resign but the kind girl said no, that she had won. So, instead the winner offered her the job to head a committee to bring in better quality food. In the end, the dirt may have mattered but by doing the right thing it all worked out. There was no gossip in the Good Gus series. There was dirt but it was on the ground!
