Election Round-up #6 - Aug 21-24

It feels like we're pretty close to a knockout blow in the Duffy trial, but we're never quite there.  And nobody seems to care.

Steve's lawyer at the time (or whatever), Benjamin Perrin, testified that he thought Steve had okayed the Duffy payment.  Because that's what Nigel Wright said.  And why would he lie about it?

He also says that Ray Novak was in the room when this was discussed, but somehow Steve says he didn't have anything to do with it.  Or it wasn't his fault.  Or something.

Also key is that Benjamin Perrin gave advice to the Prime Minister that Duffy was not a resident of PEI and did not qualify to sit as a Senator.  But of course, that was ignored and we get Steve just making up rules to suit his purposes.

Kory Teneycke is a dick.  Vice details how Harper is limiting questions from journalists to 5 per event, and 4 of those come from journalists who pay the Cons for the privilege of riding around on their campaign bus.

A Conservative candidate sent out pamphlets - funded by taxpayers - in which he attributes opinions to the Liberal candidate that actually belong to a former Liberal candidate with the same first name.

If you break the law in Canada, Steve thinks you should go to jail for a long period of time.  Unless you are breaking a law that Steve doesn't agree with.  Then you're a patriot and deserve an unrequested pardon.  The story behind the pardoning of 10 grain smuggling farmers.

Oh please, please, please, please, please!  Rob Ford says Doug Ford will run for the Conservative leadership if Steve steps down.  Not quite Donald Trump, but close.

Don Meredith gets worse.  He took a delegation to the Caribbean...and it included his own business partner.

Some Conservative candidates who were campaigning in hospitals got kicked out.  That does seem a bit strange.

Steve used some Boy Scouts as props.  Scouts Canada didn't like that.

I haven't read the Margaret Atwood column yet.  But don't wake the beast.  Edit - Now I have.  Very nice.
