Liberal staffer found behind anti-Toews Twitter account

Liberal leader Bob Rae has admitted it was a Liberal Party research staff member behind the Vikileaks30 Twitter account:

 “I was advised yesterday that an employee of the Liberal research bureau was responsible for Vikileaks30”

This staffer’s name is still unknown although he has been fired by the Liberals when the Speaker of the House’s informed them it was their employee.

Minister John Baird has also apologized to the NDP for his dumb accusation prior to an investigation being done:

“I unconditionally apologize for and retract my comments” Baird says of his attacks on NDP for Vikileaks30 comments”

Update: The staffer has been named now by Rae as Adam Carroll

Update: Toews has now ‘called out’ Trudeau on Twitter:

@justinpjtrudeau you discovered Vikileaks quickly for an innocent bystander. Again, when did u first know it was your party’s staffer?”

Another company serves legal notice against NDP’s Martin

The company Campaign Research has filed a Notice of Libel against NDP MP Pat Martin for his comments Sunday on CTV:

“There’s one large research company that was guilty of these mischief and nuisance calls in Irwin Cotler’s riding and it’s called Campaign Research…” (see full documents here)

This is the 2nd company threatening to sue Martin in the last few days as Racknine sent defamation papers to Martin Saturday (see here)

Update: Martin has now ‘clarified’ his comments about Campaign Research here

National Post equates McGregor & Maher to Woodward & Bernstein

Many of the Postmedia newspapers have now officially lost their collective minds over the robocall scandal.

It’s bad enough to see a call for a Gomery-type inquiry from the Citizen’s Den Tandt even before any completed investigation as this is apparently the new way to do things in Ottawa.

But the National Post has quickly topped that idiocy with a column from Wayne K Spear who works ever so hard on the Nixonian comparisons culminated with the crowning of the two Postmedia journos who broke this story with the most famous of all American reporters due to their uncovering of Watergate. (see here)

For more of Spear’s lunacy, check out the link to his blog where he further pushes the Nixon/Harper angle of “spying” and “file keeping on critics” and welcoming “All the President’s Men” to his site.

Also: Honourable mention for stupidity goes to the Edmonton Journal’s Mariam Ibrahim (she is a crime writer BTW) who runs a ‘voter-suppression’ story based on this from a NDP campaign manager:

“I did have one or two accounts of folks just popping in the office and telling me that they’d got a call from someone, not a recorded call, but an actual person purporting to be from Elections Canada” (see here)

Makes you wonder if there have their been other crime stories by her based along this same “one or two” exactness?
