Implosion, part V

"Brazeau steps down from Congress job." Late on a Friday, who'd a thunk it?

Now is this resignation really related to the potential for double-dipping at the taxpayer trough or does it have to do with other unsavoury news developments this week? As in, reporting on two instances of sexual harassment allegations involving Brazeau while at CAP and news today that the Brazeau-led suspension of the Manitoba wing was opposed by at least two provinces within the Congress leadership. Draw your own conclusions.

Next up, Mr. Harper really should rescind this Senate appointment if he cares at all about the integrity of the appointments issued by the office of the PM. Time for the editorial forces of the nation to start weighing in here...
