Michael Ignatieff has a habit of not being able to keep his stories straight (see here, and here) and has gotten away with it for the most part but this latest fib coming during this election should be a political disaster.
Iffy quoted in the Glasgow Herald 2004:
“I am an American Democrat. I will vote for Kerry in November”
And when Iffy’s spokesman (Michel Liboiron) was asked about this:
“Mr. Ignatieff is and always has been a Canadian citizen, period. He has never held any other citizenship and as such, has never voted in a foreign election”
Iffy was either lying about voting for Kerry or is lying now and it turns out, that wasn’t the only time Iffy is on record saying he voted in another country.
This is what he had to say about voting for the British Labour Party in 1997:
“Why did I vote Labour? I wanted the rascals [Conservatives]out”
As Brian Lilley puts it, Iffy “has some ‘splainin’ to do”.” (see here)
