Gordon "Psycho" Stamp Gone, Income Trusts Still Here

I'm still not back, but I promised to post if something big hit.

One controversy that was unfolding, was that of comments made by Gordon Stamp, the campaign chairman for Edmonton East and Conservative candidate Peter Goldring. He was quoted as saying [Bouquets of Gray, Conservative Official: "Alberta has no future in Canada", easterners are "idiots"]:
[Same-sex marriage] was not an election issue. Canadian voters never really considered that - which is why the Liberals are terrified to have that "hot potato" around in the upcoming election. That is why they shoved it through both the House of Commons and the Senate - they know most voters are stupid and will forget that the next time they vote.

Which confirms to me that Alberta has no future in Canada. We refuse to be ruled by a corrupt dictatorship that continually stays in power by a bunch of eastern voting idiots."
That has since been resolved [Bouquets of Gray, the last time I did this...]:
Statement by Peter Goldring:

"This evening I learned about comments posted on the internet by Mr. Gordon Stamp, who has been serving as manager of my campaign in Edmonton East. I was deeply disturbed by these comments, which in no way reflect my views or those of the Conservative Party. To the contrary, I have spent my entire adult life fighting for a united Canada, and, in fact, was drawn into public service to fight for Canada as a united federation.

"Mr. Stamp has stepped down as the campaign manager for Edmonton East."
Good job, Buckets, and good job, Mr. Goldring.

Mr. Stamp does not belong in any Conservative Party that I know of, and he certainly doesn't belong in mine.

Mr. Stamp, good riddance.


So, that's one controversy down, and another to go [M.K. Braaten, CTV provides evidence of possible leak]:
Tonight CTV National news had even more devastating news for the Martin Liberals. CTV has found individuals who offered evidence of a leak from within the Ministry of Finance.

...

The theory previously floated by some that investors purchased only on speculation appears to be more and more flimsy by the day. With heavy hitters on Bay Street claiming they received emails from Liberal strategists containing information about the yet-to-be released tax announcement, one can only think the most plausible outcome of this scandal is that there was in fact a leak. It appears the reason the RCMP initiated a criminal investigation looks more and more warranted by the day.
Head over to M.K.'s site for the full quotes.

We'll see if that one resolves as nicely. My guess, is no. And, my guess is that this won't be resolved by January 23rd.

Conservative response ... we'll let the Liberals explain it for a while. That way, we can continue to talk policy.

I anxiously await the resignations of Michaelle Jean and Jean LaPierre.

Hey Ferret Face, are you going to kick the Separatists out of the Blogging Tories? Or what? Or is the Blogging Tories a warmy comfy cozy furry welcoming place forr Alberta Separtists like PSYCHO, just like the Liberal Party is was a warm cozy fuzzy welcoming furry welcoming rug for the wacky Gurmant Grewal and his wife Nina- (who I hear is willing to stand up on her head to win her election)

Don't get your undies in a knot. Mr. Stamp just said that he would not want to stay in Canada if another Liberal government is voted in. That's it. By putting his freedominion handle as his middle name to try and make it seem like he is a psycho really just reflects on the childishness of yourself. Just post the facts please.

No, a campaign manager of a Conservative candidate posting anonymously as a "Conservative insider" with thoughts of separation - that could paint negatively on the campaign - is childish. Calling himself "Psycho", moreso.

Why wasn't he "Gordon Stamp" on the message boards if his statements were so innocent?

Just post the facts please.

I'm not a news organization, nor do I answer to an editorial board.

On freedominion he explained his handle.

That is not childish, geez, you obviously do not understand the definition. It might have been poor judgment, but that's about it.

Again, to insinuate that he is a psycho, is childish.

That's fine, just remember people are going to dispute your opinions/lies and will post facts to show when you're doing your thing. Admitting that you're lying though by your post has just proved my point.

Jim said...

I insinuated nothing. When did I call him a psycho? If his nickname was "The Man", and I titled the post "Gordon 'The Man' Stamp", would you be invoking the same level of hyperbole?

And, when did I lie? I stated my opinion that Mr. Stamp's comments, as a campaign manager for a Conservative MP have no place in my party - you are of course free to disagree. The comments and the actions are a matter of public record.

Jim, you can do your little subtleties all you want, I just exposed it for what it is, childishness.
