A senior official in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's office, Claude Eric Gagne, is being investigated for inappropriate behaviour toward women.
He's been on leave, pending an investigation, since the allegations came to light in early November.
It's the middle of December now. The Liberal Party kept this information from the public for six weeks, while they tried to manufacture a sexist boogeyman out of the right wing with ridiculous finger pointing.
Environment Minister hijacked her own press conference, ignoring a question about hydroelectricity to accuse The Rebel of sexist bullying, and demand we stop calling her "Climate Barbie."
In early December, Liberal MP Sherry Romanado accused Conservative MP James Bezan of sexual harassment because he made a crude joke. After three apologies and a formal investigation, no findings of misconduct were made — but that didn't stop Romanado from going on the record in the House of Commons to smear, by most accounts, a pretty decent guy.
Anyway, both instances of victimhood seemed contrived and scripted. And I think we can guess why:
The Liberal Party is a festering cesspit of sexual harassment and misconduct allegations.
Since 2015, Massimo Pacetti, Scott Andrews, Darshan Kang, Nicola Do Iorio and Hunter TooToo have all left the Liberal party caucus because of allegations of inappropriate behavior.
Now the latest allegation has touched the PMO.
You know who didn't have a lot to say about any of these instances of bad behaviour? Catherine McKenna and now Sherry Romanado.
