The Con Senator and the Brad Butt Challenge
Golly. I must admit I didn't think ANYBODY could beat out Brad Butt for the title of Con Klown of the Year.
Because when he told the Commons he had "personally witnessed" massive voter fraud. Only to admit he hadn't. He'd only heard about it. Years ago.
I didn't think it was possible to top that whopper eh?
But I was wrong.
It turns out we have another challenger !!!!!
A Conservative senator is pulling back after he seemed to suggest he knew of thousands and thousands of cases of voter fraud in Halifax and Dartmouth, N.S.
Senator Tommy McInnis !!!! Who after claiming, like Brad Butt, to have PERSONALLY witnessed massive voter fraud:
"I can tell you that vouching is a problem, but it's not just vouching. And I've witnessed it, personally on the streets of Halifax, and Dartmouth. And it is a problem.
I've seen them, actually, people take them right in and almost mark their ballot. That's how serious this is and it's thousands and thousands."
And making it sound like Nova Scotia has a REALLY scary voting problem...
Has also changed his story. In a hurry:
A day after making voter fraud allegation, McInnis's office released a statement saying that he didn't claim to have seen any evidence of voter fraud, and that he had calculated an estimate based on numbers provided by Elections Canada.
So now I can't decide which Con clown told the biggest whopper, or has the most active imagination.
Tommy or Brad...
But I do know that having both of them on committees studying the bill, makes the whole process a FARCE.
And I do know who is the biggest LOSER. And that's Pierre Poilievre.
Because he's clearly trying to get his fellow Cons to come up with anecdotal evidence of voter fraud, to try to counter the testimony of all those experts telling him there isn't any.
Marc Mayrand, the chief electoral officer of Canada, and Harry Neufeld, a consultant who studied problems in the 2011 federal election, both say there are administrative errors associated with vouching but no evidence of voter fraud.
And he must be DESPERATE...
Because not only can't he find ONE expert to support his foul Unfair Elections Act, he had to listen to another expert today criticize his bill AND his cowardly attacks on election officials.
The Conservative government’s bitter tone in debate over its Fair Elections Act has caught attention overseas – as a U.K. elections expert urged Canadian parliamentarians to stick to facts, avoid “groundless” personal attacks and consider revisions to the bill.
Just a day after the old Con strategist Jeff Norquay admitted that the reason the Cons are going after Marc Mayrand is because he busted them in the so-called In and out Scandal.
When according to Norquay, he should have busted ALL the parties...
So it is all about REVENGE.
And of course we know where that madness comes from, and what we must do to defend our democracy.
Kill the bill.
Fire Pierre Poilievre
And defeat this dangerous maniac ...
