Jack MacLaren is a Con MPP in Ontario's Legislative Assembly, an absolute clown, and a constant source of embarrassment.
Just over a week ago he disgraced himself by cracking a vulgar sexist joke at a fundraiser.
A Progressive Conservative MPP made “crude and vulgar” comments to a woman who is his federal Liberal counterpart in an Ottawa Valley riding, embarrassing her and many in the audience at a “men’s night” cancer fundraising event attended by 350 people.
And now he's in trouble again.
For running this page of glowing testimonials from constituents thanking him for what he had done for them.
Only to have it revealed that he didn't do anything for them, and they were just phantoms.
Pressure is mounting on Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown to discipline Jack MacLaren after the controversial MPP was forced to remove fake testimonials from his official website.
Who live in places like Berlin.
“Thanks for everything you did to help me resolve my problem with the Ministry of Transportation,” said “Darren,” from Mississippi Mills, Ont., beside his alleged photograph. But the Citizen found “Darren” is actually Sam Muirhead, a New Zealand-born software developer who lives in Berlin, Germany.
Or the Netherlands.
There was also a discrepancy over “Scott” from Almonte, Ont. “Thank you for getting my OHIP card. After trying myself, for a year and a half, I was ready to give up,” he said on MacLaren’s website. However, the photo of “Scott” was taken by a photographer in the Netherlands and has been swirling around the Internet for almost a decade.
And while the Con clown tried to claim that they were real testimonials, and only the pictures had been changed.
“Measures were taken to protect the privacy of individuals who provided positive feedback to my office,” the MPP said in a statement Wednesday. “While this was not intended to be misleading, I recognize that it was improper. I apologize and have asked for the content to be removed immediately.”
Nobody believed him. The website came crashing down.

And as for MacLaren's boss, the sinister Con leader Patrick Brown...#JackMacLarenTestimonials— TheHarperGovInExile (@TheHarperGov) April 13, 2016

He was so embarrassed, and so hapless, he just gave him a slap on the wrist.
Brown refused to discuss the punishment options available, which could include ejecting MacLaren from caucus.
Sources said late Wednesday the troublesome MPP had been demoted from his ceremonial role as chair of the Tories’ Eastern Ontario caucus, a symbolic body that has never held a meeting with him at the helm.
But then why should we be surprised?
When all those fake testimonials sound so familiar...
They are all Cons or Con artists,
They are the scummiest politicians this country has ever known.
And you can't trust any of them...
