If Google's autocomplete feature is any indication, lots of people want to know about John Liu in the context of his "scandal." 

As of yesterday, Google's autocomplete was still turning up only innocuous words when I typed the names of other 2013 mayoral candidates.

Quinn: "twitter"

Stringer: "baby"

De Blasio: "family" (well, and also "worst landlords," but only in the sense that he is loudly opposed to them)

Thompson: "2013"

Allon: "wiki"
