Grewal Again

If you thought, like myself, that you had your last laugh over Grumant Grewal, well think again. If there is only one MP that has been consistent in providing the Electorate with what can easily be described as slapstick humor, it’s good old Grumant Grewal.

If you haven’t heard, Grewal could be in a bit of trouble over campaign expenses for the 2004 election. It is only the most recent problem facing Grewal, after a long string of events starting with the infamous tape scandal. If I am counting correctly this is only the 3rd or 4th RCMP investigation (tape scandal, airport fiasco, immigration controversy, and now campaign scrutiny) for Grewal since this spring, that’s got to be a record.

After a greuling spring session of Parliament with plenty of Conservative criticism over Liberal campaign spending this latest Grewal situation is more than a little ironic. Although the details are unclear, it appears, to me at least, that Grewal may have pocketed a few campaign donations. At the very least, Elections Act procedures were not followed and proper donation receipts were not provided, which, although less criminal is just another embarrassing blunder which Grewal, and the Conservative Party of Canada, could live without.

It is really quite humorous. It’s almost as if, whenever the Conservatives begin to build something promising, Grewal is there to knock it down. Although not the only destructive force in the Conservative Party, Grumant Grewal has more than proven that he is a self destructive force to be reckoned with.

    The thing I find amazing is how Harper continues to try and spin this against the Liberals, aftreall, the Liberals wanted him in their caucus just a few weeks ago! Nice try Stephen, hire some new advisors already!

    I was checking my MPs contributions on the elections Canada website the day before the story broke. I had hoped to publicly humiliate him, or at the least boycott businesses that donated to his campaign. Sadly, no businesses were named this time around, and no errors were evident. I still wonder if he was pulling a Grurmant.

    It really is amazing. You’ve really got to wonder what is next.

    The Conservatives really have to give this guy the boot already.
