Source of claims unknownApr 15th, 2011 | By Coco Cabrera | Category: Politics
The unsubstantiated claims against Helena Guergis and Rahim Jaffer that led Steve Harper to expel Ms. Guergis from cabinet are not the first unsubstantiated claims made against members of the Conservative Caucus and members of the PMO.
In November of 2010 urNews received a sack (made of a material known as “brin”, a sort of burlap), containing hundreds of scraps of paper with numerous other completely unsubstantiated allegations. As in the Guergis affair urNews investigators looked into the most salacious of these claims in the hopes of finding even a thread of evidence to support them. None was found.
Among the unsubstantiated allegations scribbled on to the scraps of paper were: Peter Mackay refused to travel to Afghanistan until a special titanium codpiece had been fabricated to protect his genitals; in 1977 Finance Minister Jim Flaherty lived in Brno, in then Czechoslovakia, as a woman named Gerta Vink; Rona Ambrose drunk-dialed George W. Bush at 3 am and Laura Bush answered; Steve Harper is heavily medicated for bipolar disorders; Jason Kenney woke up one morning and John Baird was just there staring at him; Rob Anders keeps a transexual lover named Mboutou in an apartment in Hull; Fisheries Minister Gail Shea was born in Kenya not Prince Edward Island; Steve Harper calls in plays and line changes to the Maple Leaf bench; Pierre Poilievre has never held a job; Tony Clement cannot sit on suede furniture because he leaves a grease stain; Mike Duffy danced naked in front of the Prime Minister as a condition of getting his Senate Seat.
