Here they go again... but this time there's a difference.
Only hours after this story broke, Paul Martin acted.
No "well, fundamentally, y'know, lookit" blah blah blah. Just BAM, out. No defense, just action.
If he and his spokespeople had tried to waltz around this, peoples' heads would have exploded.
I guess it's safe to assume that the NDP allegations are true, or else there would have been protestations as well there should have been under those circumstances.
And it's probably also safe to opine that the Liberal candidate who allegedly offered the bribe figured he'd get away with it under the heading, "Business as Usual". But not this time. Martin can't have another scandal and he cut this one off at the knees. Good on him.
But I'm still not voting Liberal this time around.
