Just when you think the Media Party’s secrets couldn’t get any dirtier, this comes to light:
The court record shows that, in 2010, Bourrie was issued a $500 cheque by one of Duffy’s contractors for what appeared to be “Web site analysis.”
Mark Bourrie is a rabid anti-Harper fanatic who recently appeared as a media panelist at the NDP front-group, Broadbent Institute alongside fellow Harper-Derangement Syndrome sufferer Michael Harris:
Do you think Bourrie told the Broadbent people he had taken money previously from Duffy?
The Parliamentary Press Gallery has confirmed that Bourrie was a member during this time:
Gallery staff confirmed Wednesday that Bourrie was a Gallery member in 2010 at the time he took Duffy’s money and remains a member as of Wednesday, listed on the Gallery’s Web site as a freelancer. (see here)
How long has the Press Gallery known about this and how many members are or have been paid under the table by politicians or political parties?
The Media Party’s glee over using the Duffy trial to take down Harper has now had the tables turned on them – hilarious if it wasn’t so disgusting.
