“Testimony provided by Jean Brault, as well as certain statements made by Bernard Thiboutot, now assert improper practices did occur. These assertions may harm the interests of the Liberal Party,” the request says.Isn't this like the rapist complaining that the victim wore a short skirt? You twits were lining each others pockets!
The Liberal request repeats key elements of Mr. Brault's testimony that cannot be reported. It then states: “Based on the aforementioned assertions — and any similar such claims that may emerge in future testimony — the Liberal Party has taken the additional step of asking the RCMP to investigate whether the party was also [a] victim of such collusion.”
The same Paul Martin who is now doing everything within his power to cover his ass had this to say over a year ago:
Martin repeatedly declared he intended to get to the bottom of the scandal, which has seen the Liberals drop in the polls nine percentage points to 39 per cent in a matter of days.A contribution to what exactly? To his friends pocketbooks? Arg!
He said he came into public life to make a contribution, and he will do everything in his power to overhaul government to make it more open and accountable -- otherwise, he will get out.
I just wish a reporter would ask Martin how the Liberal Party's latest actions intend to achieve what he promised before the election. I'll be patiently waiting...
