Oh. My. Gravy. I don't know if the Chief Electoral Officer likes poutine. But it's good to know that even if he doesn't, he's got a heap of complaints to munch on.
“Immediately following the 2011 general election, the Commissioner of Canada Elections deployed resources to investigate complaints of fraudulent or improper calls. Since then over 700 Canadians from across the country have informed us of specific circumstances where they believe similar wrongdoing took place.
And unlike the Cons he's ready to talk to a parliamentary committee.
“As I have previously indicated, I intend to submit a report to Parliament in due course. In the meantime, as an agent of Parliament, I would welcome the opportunity to appear before the parliamentary committee responsible for electoral matters to provide information on our administrative and investigative processes.”
Which is sure to give the Harperite thugs a bad case of indigestion. And make the Con klown Dean Del Mastro belch out of both ends. Especially when he reads this.
Because now he can't blame the Liberals. This is clearly a vast Con conspiracy. Just like him and the others can't blame a rogue operative. Because all that parliamentary committee has to do to uncover the truth, is subpoena Inky Mark.
So he can can make clear what should be obvious; there are no rogue operatives in Stephen Harper's Con mob, because the PMO and the War Room control EVERYTHING.
He says the party had control over the entire, nationwide database. An MP and his staff were at the mercy of headquarters, Mr. Mark says, because they had the power to allocate and revoke database passwords.
“I always have thought independently, even with [election] signage at home,” the former MP said. “I always knew that I had to do my own thing, because ... they can control you 100 per cent, and that's exactly what happened with CIMS.”
And Great Ugly Leader is a control freak out of control. Like his
Golly. I mean inky dinky doo doo. I always thought Inky Mark was just another Con asshole, but now he's my hero !!!!
And I can only imagine how Stephen Harper must be taking the news...
Probably worse than he did when he first heard his gang had been fingered.
Shortly after the Robocall scandal broke, aides advised Stephen Harper to appear dutifully concerned, and pledge full cooperation with any Elections Canada investigation.
He refused, angrily vowing to remain aloof, and deliver a full-on head-banging assault against his House of Commons adversaries.
Which was crazy enough. And makes you wonder whether he's fit to remain in office. So I wouldn't be surprised if tonight, he's rolling on the floor, biting the carpet, and shouting "Inky dinky poo poo #!@#!!"
But who can blame him eh? The cover up is unravelling, there's nothing he can do to control it, and that must be KILLING him.
Mmmm...I LOVE this poutine story. It makes me hungry for more.
Pass me the french fries. Sprinkle some cheese curds on this delicious scandal.
And let the Cons drown in the gravy...
