#3 on the list is guilty of the same.
The keyphrase is "boston wedding photography" and the sites in question are ranked #1 & #3 in Google.

Is this something that can or should be reported to Google?

I assume you have viewed the cached page or the source, it IS as you say gibberish apart from the many outbound links in fact the word 'mortgage' appears almost 100times on the page shown to the search engines.
They also have a huge ring of linking sites.
What you do is up to you, but cloaking is against the Google terms :-
1. What is cloaking?
The term "cloaking" is used to describe a website that returns altered webpages to search engines crawling the site. In other words, the webserver is programmed to return different content to Google than it returns to regular users, usually in an attempt to distort search engine rankings. This can mislead users about what they'll find when they click on a search result. To preserve the accuracy and quality of our search results, Google may permanently ban from our index any sites or site authors that engage in cloaking to distort their search rankings.

Too bad they didn't get banned from Google altogether.
