Every story told thus far about Ches Crosbie and the riding in Avalon has the unmistakeable odour of bullshit about it.
The latest twist, namely that Senator David Wells was scuttling a potential rival as The Biggest Conservative in Newfoundland and Labrador, is a bit more in the realm of plausible but it still doesn’t quite ring true.
Jihad against people who dissed Harper?
Well, the fact they took Blue-lit Fairity O’Brien in Gander puts paid to that excuse. Fairity jumped enthusiastically on the Danny Williams bandwagon and never let go of it even after Williams left office. Fairity laced into the federal Conservatives and Stephen Harper at every chance.
So if the Harperites would take Fairity as a fit candidate, it’s hard to imagine what Ches Crosbie did to make him unacceptable.
Then there’s the venom that John Crosbie has been spewing. It’s just a little too…well… venomous. it’s Danny Williams kinda extreme bullshit and that is always a sign that he is trying to mask the truth with a wild accusation or 16.
Elections Canada donations.
In 2012 and 2013.
500 bucks to Justin Trudeau and 500 bucks to the Liberal Party of Canada.
That would make Ches Crosbie an unfit Conservative candidate.
And it’s the kinda stuff John would want to distract attention from with Danny-esque accusations about imaginary personal vendettas.
