The federal Liberals, who salivate each time they uncover any backroom shenanigans by the Harper Conservatives, have proven once again that hypocrisy troubles them none.
One of the dirtiest campaigns by the Liberals, who claim total innocence in the matter, was the Vikileaks scandal where one of their operatives posted dirty details of Safety Minister Vic Toews’ rather messy divorce on a contrived Twitter account.
The culprit, Adam Carroll, was eventually caught and fired, and Bob Rae got up in the Commons to apologize to all and sundry for such skullduggery — and to Vic Toews in particular.
But what have we know learned? Well, we have since learned that Adam Carroll, the creator of Vikileaks, is back with the Liberals, and working out of their party headquarters in Ottawa.
This is Liberal hypocrisy at its finest.
Wait until the furor has subsided, wait the parliamentary committee had finished its questioning, wait until the House of Commons is no longer in session, and welcome their dirty trickster back into the fold — no doubt with high fives all around.
Flip it around. If it has been a Tory dirty trickster who was welcomed back, the media would have been in hysterics.
But, then again, what else is new?
