It seems as if Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange is keeping himself busy as he sits in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, evading sexual assault charges in Sweden. Yesterday on an Australian-based hip-hop site, Juice Rap News, Assange released a bizarre rap video promoting his Wikileaks party in his native home of Australia. In the video, Assange dons a blonde wig and croons out of toon in a song designed to skewer various parliamentary candidates in Australia.
In recent years, Assange has been a flashpoint in the growing debate between government overreach and privacy as his website, Wikileaks, has leaked confidential government and corporate documents since it’s founding in 2006. Last week, Bradley Manning, a private that leaked confidential military documents to the site, was sentenced to 35-years in jail. Since being accused of sexual assault in 2010, Assange has been on the run before being offered asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in late 2012.
