Patrick Brown was the leader of the Ontario PC Party just three weeks ago. But then CTV broadcast allegations against him, dating back many years, of alleged sexual misconduct.
Brown made a night-time press statement that was a political disaster. But I think what sealed his fate was a statement put out that same night by Brown’s senior staff, saying they told him to resign, and when he didn’t, they did.
Brown did resign, eventually, and other politicians jumped into fill the void — extremely quickly, don’t you think?
Caroline Mulroney, who has never won elected office, suddenly announced she wanted to go straight to the top job, to be leader of the party, and premier. And the senior staff who had thrown Patrick Brown under the bus were working for Mulroney the next morning.
Brown surfaced against a few days ago, with a rebuttal to the CTV accusations against him. As I'll show you tonight, it's a pretty specific rebuttal, and the details are provably true or false.
They raise the kinds of questions that a skeptical reporter might have put to an accuser before going on national TV. But then again, it wasn’t a skeptical CTV reporter. It was a friend of the accused.
Pretty fishy, don’t you think?
Then CTV published a new story late last night:
"[Brown's accuser] now says that she was of legal drinking age and out of high school. Brown was a Conservative member of Parliament at the time of the alleged incident."
I don’t like Patrick Brown, and I don’t think he’s an angel.
I don’t want him to be premier and I’m glad he’s not Ontario leader anymore.
But it is not for him that I call attention to the scheming and the slanders against him — it in the name of fair play and justice and to call out political and media schemers who have weaponized the #MeToo anti-sexual harassment movement for their own personal gain, and to the destruction of a man who seems not to have done what they said he did...
