Revenge of the Bureaucrats

I have a column in today's National Post examining the reasons behind that Elections Canada "raid" on Tory Party headquarters.

And if you missed me talking about this on Mike Duffy Live yesterday, you can watch the interview here.

To every scandal - spin, spin, spin
There is a column - spin, spin, spin
And a time for every diversion under heaven

A time to attack, a time to deny
A time to whine, a time to bitch
A time to blame, a time to excuse
A time to obscure, I swear it's not too late!

To every scandal - spin, spin, spin
There is a column - spin, spin, spin
And a time for every diversion under heaven

Yes, with the amount of verifiable facts available, there certainly is enough spin going on here.
LPC and other partisians seems to repeat "RCMP raid" as often as possible. If you repeat a lie often enough people will believe it.

That would seem to be the goal of this whole affair and if that does turn out to be the case it will damage the mud slingers more than the CPC.

There are a few things you can trust the RCMP on:

1) Jailing those that dare capture grey market satellite signals

2) Jailing farmers for selling grain

3) Framing French separatists

4) Failing in their duty to protect Canadians from Sikh terrorists despite numerous warnings from the Indian government

5) Acting like the personal paid army of the Liberal hiearchy

As far as this issue what the hell is the leader of Elections Canada doing lobbying for legislation? WTF? I thought Elections Canada was suppose to act arms length from the legislature.

Any honest person realizes limits on election spending is an elitist limit on free speech.
