The Case of the Cons and the Demon-Dialers

Golly Sherlock, I see the bizarre case of the Cons and the Demon-Dialers has taken another strange turn. It seems that the Harper mob is trying to shop one if its own. 

A young campaign worker named Michael Sona, seen here posing with Great Robot Leader...

Don't they make a lovely couple?

Although I'm not sure Sona makes a good scapegoat. Because while he may be rabidly partisan.

Several University of Guelph students claim Michael Sona, the communications director for Guelph Conservative candidate Marty Burke, attempted to put a stop to voting at the special ballot held Wednesday. The students say Sona approached the Elections Canada balloting site claiming that the process unfolding at the location was illegal and at one point reached for but never took possession of a container with ballots.

He also appears to be as dumb as a spoon. 

Which leads to some pretty obvious questions eh? If he is the guilty party, who gave that gopher a brain transplant? Why would the communications director for a losing candidate in Guelph be sending out messages to about TWENTY other swing ridings?

Who chose the ridings, who gave him the numbers of Liberal supporters,  who paid for all those calls?

And who taught him to act like a criminal?

“The customer tried to make themselves difficult to trace,” said a source familiar with the investigation. “They went to an effort to misdirect and to conceal their identity from Racknine.

“They weren’t particularly smart about it,” said the source. “They made the recordings from a cellphone that they bought in cash. This is a common approach by criminals — you pay cash for a prepaid cellphone. So they did this, and that gave them the illusion of security.”

Not that when it comes to electoral fraud, the Cons haven't been there before.

But does anyone seriously believe that even if Sona did it, he was acting on his own?

I don't. I'm inclined to agree with Bob Rae.

“Why would they only find the guy today, after the story has come out? They’ve known about this allegation a long time.”

“The prime minister has created a Nixonian culture,” Rae said. “This stuff doesn’t happen unless the boss lets it happen.”

And remember, these are the people who want to read our e-mails. 

Golly. You don't think this sordid scandal will make even even more Canadians feel like they can't trust the Cons with ANYTHING? Oh definitely.

You know this is one of my favourite pictures, the day the police paid the Cons a visit...

Count on it happening again.

Will Stephen Harper suffer the same fate as Richard Nixon?

I wouldn't be surprised....

The same fate as Nixon for Harper? Oh God, please please! As we were taught to pray at bedtime, "Deliver us from evil."
