Oh how we laughed at his comeuppance
The Guardian reports…
Luca Morisi, the influential social media guru credited with the surge in support for the Italian far-right League party, has been placed under investigation for the alleged possession and sale of drugs.
Morisi was the mastermind behind “the Beast”, software that helps to produce a constant stream of content – much of it fuelling animosity towards immigrants – across the social media accounts of Matteo Salvini, the leader of the League.
It was announced last week that Morisi had resigned from his role with the party, reportedly saying that he needed to “unplug” for family reasons.
However, the Verona prosecutor, Angela Barbaglio, told Ansa news agency on Monday that Morisi’s name had been “inserted into the register of people under investigation for the alleged transfer of a narcotic substance”.
