5829...Loyalty: Tories Throw Staffer Under Bus

A moving bus.

We have seen this before from our beloved Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Remember the loyalty he showed towards Helena Guergis?  From cabinet to law school frosh in the blink of an eye.

Ditto Peter, The Honourable Peter Penashue.

The latest to find out that not only do the wheels on the bus go round and round but they also hurt while doing so is Michael Sona.  The Hill Times reports that he "... who served as communications director to Conservative candidate Marty Burke in the 2011 election, was charged last week as part of Elections Canada’s investigation into allegations of misleading robocalls being placed to electors in the riding of Guelph, Ont., during the election. The calls, which were apparently arranged and carried out by an individual using the alias Pierre Poutine, directed voters to incorrect polling locations."

"... charged under the Canada Elections Act for having willfully prevented or endeavoured to prevent an elector from voting at an election."  he's going to trial May 3 of this year.  Presumably in Ottawa; his lawyer, Norm Boxall, is an Ottawa based lad.
