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?”

    i am shocked. no, flabbergasted. a liberal staffer, who would have imagined.

  2. Fay Says:

    calling kady o to get the bottom of this… HaHa!

  3. Fay Says:

    Is anyone else questioning the credibility of the Ottawa Citizen after this? I believe the Ottawa citizen pointed the blame at the NDP.
    Is this the reason for the latest robo call scandal reported by the Ottawa Citizen?

    • BC Blue Says:

      That Citizen reporter ran a good story and didn’t directly blame the NDP. They followed up with the person connected to the NDP and IP address and got their side of the story without smearing anyone.

    I believe this is called being honest and transparent. Its a quality that conservatives could learn.

    • BC Blue Says:

      You back again huh?

      • Gerald Says:

        It was just on the news that they have the name,and Justin Trudeau was involved.Rae has been saying that it went to the top with this election thing,but he didn’t dare to say anything about it today.PM has more class than all of them combined,and I know he won’t accuse Rae of being behind this wikileaks.I hope that some of the Conservative MP’s accuse Ray of knowing, and even gave permission to his staffer for the wikileaks affair.

    • Bec Says:

      Did you miss the part where The Speaker informed the Liberals? It would be pretty hard to hide after that, don’t you think?

  5. Anonymous Says:

    Gosh, whoda thunk it, maybe they are behind the robo calls scheme too, something they devised to discredit the Conservatives with.

  6. Ontario Girl Says:

    Wonder if this will be on The NATIONAL CBC for a week and CTV and Global? Looks like the Liberal party’s research dept was busy…Its on CBC…Bob Rae is on and he’s talking in french to the reporters..no translator The staffer\s name is Adam Carol.He’s in his 30’s and been on the hill for many years. French again . Are the media going to say he was thrown under the bus by the Liberal party?

    […] CTV do not make Bob Rae out to be some kind of hero and his staffer a martyr.   (2) According to BC Blue, the Liberal staffer has been identified as Adam Carroll. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike […]

  8. Gerald Says:

    CTV. National Affairs Tasha Kherridien,and that other lib on there must not have watched Question Period.Rae’s on National Affairs now and he’s making excuses for his staffer.Rae said that the staffer was angry about the C-30 bill.Tasha said that was a lame apology.

  9. guffman Says:

    I’m just anxious to now hear how this Liberal staffer got his hands on private documents that he posted regarding Vic Toews divorce. Another law suit on the way?…
    And I love to hear Rae have to confess Liberal culpability here, after accusing the Conservatives all weekend of illegal activities and dirty tricks, and Harper of fostering a toxic political culture… If this robocall nonsense doesn’t turn out the way he expects, he and the Pat Martin are going to lose major face over this.

  10. greyburr Says:

    Just curious,but did Carroll work for the twitter twit Trudeau ,smells like something is being covered up here.

    • BC Blue Says:

      It’s still not clear who he was working for. Rae is saying he worked in “research”. He did work last for Bonnie Crombie and Joe Volpe before then.

  11. bettie Says:

    I wonder if Bob Rae will eat his words… “Nixonian attitude”, “fault lies with the leader”, etc. That is what Bob said about our Prime Minister when accusing him.

    The comments at the Globe and Mail are very pro-Rae, saying Harper could learn from him how to apologize… They didn’t say what he should apologize for, however!!

  12. Allan Says:

    In the picture above it shows two liberal MP’s and a whole bunch of media. So why is it that they hear stuff about liberals but they say much about it?

  13. Ed Says:

    He worked for Joe Volpe? That in itself says a lot.
    But Rae didn’t do this without a purpose. The twitter twit was caught red handed and Rae had no choice but to admit it.
    Now Rae will be saying “We owned up, now it’s your turn. Tell us the truth about Robcalsll” or words to that effect.
    We already had a preview of it with the comment from “Anony-mouse.” above.

  14. Mack Says:

    Will Bob Rae be held accountable for his Nixonian-style politics? After all, the fish rots from the head.

  15. Gerald Says:

    I’ve watched a lot of this on the left media,and I have a feeling after watching the Power Panel on P&P this evening ,that the left media and the liberals set this up.The liberals have won anyway,as all they and the left media wanted to do is put it into people’s minds that the Conservatives rigged the election,whether they did or not isn’t important.There’ll probably be no evidence that the Conservatives are guilty,but there’ll also be no evidence that they are innocent.It’s just going to be a lot of he said,she said.Even some of the Conservative voters will be suspicious of the CPC.As far as I’m concerned,I don’t care one way or the other,because if there’s one thing I do know is the liberals and NDPPQ are despicable,especially the liberals and their media.What we do know about the liberal scandals could fill a thousand page book,and that’s only what we do know.What we don’t know would have put most of them in jail for life.As far as I’m concerned,I’d rather have PM Harper as a leader than I would any person in the world.

  16. Hans Says:

    So I guess it the “NIXONIAN LIEberals” once again engaging in a little vendetta for the team.

    Yum, yum your gumshoe leather is served…chewed out and boiled over!

    And of course PMSH is ‘so meanspirited’ why he’s got horns growing from his head.

    Thank you for the little history lesson er I mean histrionics lesson.

    I want to add that PM Harper has a lot of followers here in New Brunswick.I promote PM Harper almost everywhere I go.John Williamson is my MP.He has the seat that used to be Greg Thompson’s,the Veteran Affairs Minister

  18. Ontario Girl Says:

    Rae is no hero. Stockwell Day on P&P said an investigation from the” speakers office” had this on radar and Rae said he knew this yesterday from the whip Judy Foote. Wonder if he knew when he was out this weekend with his signs, all holy talking about dirty tricks. Wonder if this Liberal research dept had anything to do with the robocalls on the taxpayers dime.

  19. Sean M Says:

    “Liberal” dirty tricks is nothing new and vikileaks is part of the pattern. IMO, “Liberals” and their media are behind “robogate” as well… Still trying to steal an election they lost and seize power through a campaign of dirty tricks. “Liberals” are a disgrace!! The “Liberal” “culture of corruption” at it’s ugliest, aided and abetted by the corrupt media.

  20. taxpayer Says:

    “They were public documents and have been circulated for years in Ottawa”

    I’m curious about that statement. I presume from it that you had a copy of Mr T’s divorce proceedings? I didn’t. You have a copy of mine then? Because it seems pretty obvious from how fast these people got the dirt out that I, who did not know (or care) that Mr T was married, had kids, was divorced or their was any “dirt” to be flung about it. If I had taken the time to investigate Mr T, how long do you think an average joe like me would take to discover any of this and get it to press, so to speak?

    Longer than these guys did. I say they had all this “in the can”, just waiting to lob it at Mr T. Similarly, this “robocall” steal an election from us, boo hoo, that Harper is some MEANIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIE crap has been sitting in the can for quite some time. Like a smoke screen, for Bob Rage’s little Vikileaks caper, quick throw some body under the bus,

    Next time I need some dirt on someone, I know who to call.

  21. taxpayer Says:

    I didn’t say that. I found it odd that you would refer to Mr T’s divorce proceedings “have been circulated”, as if that was expected or normal. I wouldn’t think so. And thanks for the complement.
