"Quicksand"

Maybe I shouldn’t have days off anymore. I read too much and think too much.

But THIS makes my blood boil.

Stephen Harper, the supposed bastion of good government, the man who promised to end internal corruption and brought us the almighty Accountability Act, has been fingered in a possible vote-buying scam.

According to the widow of Chuck Cadman – a former independent MP whose infamous vote for the Liberals and Paul Martin a couple of years ago saved that minority government’s ass (until they lost another confidence vote and the subsequent election) – Cadman was offered a $1 million life insurance policy in exchange for his vote in May 2005.

What really makes the story, though, is Harper’s quote:

“Of the offer to Chuck,” he quotes Mr. Harper as saying, “it was only to
replace financial considerations he might lose due to an election, okay.
That’s my understanding of what they were talking about.”

“They were legitimately representing the party,” Mr. Harper confirmed. “I
said ‘Don’t press him, I mean, you have this theory that it’s, you know,
financial insecurity, and you know, just, you know, if that’s what you say
make the case,’ but I said ‘Don’t press it.'”

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Liberals – PLEASE don’t f*ck this up!! Harper now has an Achilles heel. Expose it.

PS: I always knew Harper was a bastard…
