Armstrong Vs Savile
Lance Armstrong and Jimmy Savile - famous names now synonymous with disgrace and reputational annihilation. While it is unfair to put these two names in the same sentence, both individuals were highly successful at the height of their careers, and built wonderful charities. One writer in The Telegraph put it like this: "Like Jimmy Savile’s charitable efforts, Livestrong provided Armstrong with a cover of respectability and decency behind which he could continue his sporting deception. No one could believe a man who did so much for good causes could be so duplicitous." Someone asked me whether one should return charity received from them, or from other dubious sources.
