Well for one glorious but very brief moment Stephen Harper must have thought he was getting a break.
Must have thought that Canadians would be too busy talking about the royal baby to think about all the scandals hanging around the neck of his rotting government.
But sadly for him when the bun finally popped out of his oven, it wasn't the royal baby.
It was Dean Del Mastro !!!!
Federal prosecutors are considering laying charges over expenses claimed by Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro’s campaign during the 2008 election.
Del Mastro has served as the prime minister’s parliamentary secretary since 2011 and, despite reports last year of two Elections Canada investigations into his 2008 campaign, continues to hold the post.
Can you believe it eh? Del Mastro's back. Talk about another massive PR problem.
I mean it seems like just yesterday that the Deaner was leading the charge accusing the opposition of being UNETHICAL...
But that was then and this is now.
And now he's also under a cloud of suspicion, along with the Chief of Staff, the PM's lawyer, two other PMO staffers, Pamela Wallin, Patrick Brazeau, and of course Old Duff.
The RCMP have contacted the Prime Minister’s Office as part of its investigation of a secret payment to Sen. Mike Duffy.
The official wouldn’t say who the RCMP have asked to speak with, or what information investigators have asked for, but reports last week suggested Harper’s office was withholding a key email where Duffy allegedly outlines a deal for Harper’s former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, to give him $90,000 to cover the repayment of his improper living expense claims.
The gift that keeps on giving...
Gawd. And now the RCMP is in the PMO.
Is this a government or a crime story?
One really has to wonder where all this is leading.
And you know what I think...
Because there does come a moment when you are judged by the company you keep.
And everybody knows that a fish rots from the head down.
Yup. The stench may be appalling, but I'm really enjoying this story eh?
Because trust me it will get even
All those scandals are coming down the track like a runaway express train.
And I just can't wait to see who will be the first Con.
To sing this sad song....
