OMG. When I heard the news at first I was stunned. And then I was shocked.
And then I was FURIOUS.
This wasn't how my new
It was supposed to be a torrid Con love story not a tacky Con SCANDAL !#@!!!!
And then all I could think of was Dimitri, Dimitri, we hardly knew you.
Dimitri Soudas has been forced out as the Conservative Party of Canada's executive director after trying to interfere with his fiancée's Conservative nomination battle.
Soudas, who was Prime Minister Stephen Harper's director of communications in 2011, has been the party's executive director since December.
I mean gone after only THREE months?
Could anything be more humiliating?
And of course at first I blamed Eve...
Soudas's fiancée, Eve Adams, is fighting local chiropractor Natalia Lishchyna for the Conservative nomination in Oakville-North Burlington, a newly created riding that technically won't exist until the next election.
The Canadian Press has reported that tempers flared when Adams showed up at a riding board meeting March 19, and was asked to leave after an unpleasant exchange. Two separate Conservative sources said one board member threatened to call the police when she stayed on.
However after I read this Biblical boondoggle again, I had to admit that at least Eve had a good excuse to explain her outrageous behaviour.
Adams has been recovering from a concussion from a fall last month in Ottawa.
But who could forget how Dimitri treated poor Wally?
In an email to Conservative headquarters, longtime party organizer Wally Butts expressed frustration with the situation in Oakville-North Burlington.
"I am in a totally untenable situation in this matter as Dimitri is my ultimate boss. Can you please take action in this matter to straighten out this worsening mess?"
Butts, who was close to late national campaign director Doug Finley and his wife, cabinet minister Diane Finley, was let go shortly thereafter.
Or the torrid Tory reaction, or the disgusting way those tongues were wagging.
Butts's departure sent tongues wagging in surrounding ridings. One Hamilton-area riding association president penned an open letter saying Soudas had "let the bedroom get in the way of the boardroom.
Or how I had to hide THAT chapter from my Mum eh? Gawd.
And then I slowly came to the conclusion that they were BOTH to blame.
Because Eve has had her troubles.
It's not the first time Dimitri has been accused of trying to influence a nomination process.
Conservative leader Stephen Harper’s chief spokesman denies he received any kickbacks for allegedly trying to influence the appointment process at the Montreal Port Authority.
And who could forget it was him who first started the practice of limiting questions from reporters to those on his list?
Which was the beginning of the muzzling of the media, and the Age of Con Propaganda and Disinformation. Or the age when they thought they could get away with ANYTHING.
And then I had to agree it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
And that it couldn't be a bigger slap in the face for Stephen Harper.
Because let's be clear eh? Dimitri is HIS guy. He brought him back to try to save the party.
The combative Soudas was Harper's choice to run the party in the lead-up to the 2015 federal election. Soudas was appointed over the protests of cabinet ministers and national council members who pushed for other candidates.
Now the party is revolting. The whole thing is just ANOTHER Con scandal.
Dimitri is just ANOTHER of Harper's REALLY bad appointments.
And just one more sign that the Con regime is crumbling or IMPLODING..
Hey, who said my HarleCon romance was cheap and tawdry? It's a wonderful morality play !!!!
First they corrupt themselves, and everything they touch.
Then their Great Leader loses his judgement, and his mind, and threatens to drag them all down with him.
Then they get desperate, and start fighting themselves.
And then we DESTROY them...
