Tell me that there wasn’t a deal worked out between Liberal staffer Adam Carroll and the Liberal Party to hire him back (see here) after the storm blew over from him setting up the Twitter account to smear Conservative minister Vic Toews?
Liberal leader Bob Rae obviously lied when he said that “political controversy is one thing, personal attacks are another” or Carroll would not be now be back inside the party he leads.
And will we hear Justin Trudeau denounce this re-hiring since he stated at the time that he was “Appalled to find out Vikileaks came from us Liberals. Yes, I tweeted about it, but I did not endorse it. Personal attacks are always wrong.” or will he be silent because he knew all along there was a deal in place?
What about the media who praised Bob Rae for “unreservedly” apologising to Toews like the National Post’s Andrew Coyne:
“Rae turning a fiasco for his party into something of a personal triumph. This is how an apology is done, folks.”
Can’t wait to hear from them all.
