Remember the Liberal Adscam scandal?
Liberal-connected ad agencies, pollsters and PR firms billed taxpayers for millions of dollars, but instead of doing the work, they’d give a kick back to the Liberal Party itself.
Or think about David Dingwall, the Liberal cabinet minister who was the head of the Canadian Mint. When he quit, he also demanded a huge severance package. He famously told a Parliamentary Committee that he was "entitled to my entitlements."
That was 2005. Now a new MP from Winnipeg, Robert Falcon Oulette, was running to be the Speaker of the House of Commons.
He actually said he was running because the job would give him “great influence” with the prime minister.
He boasted that if speakers or their friends had issues "which require funding or action, they can call the prime minister to their chair (...) Speakers have influence because they control debate, and prime ministers want to keep them happy.”
He just dropped out of the race. Not because he didn’t mean what he said.
He just shouldn’t have said it in public.
The past ten years of Harper’s clean living has bored people. They’ve forgotten Adscam, the Libranos. The Liberals are going to remind us all.
