Liberals Distribute More Attacks

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The Liberal staffers attending the Ontario PC convention continued to hand out attack materials to the media as the day went on. This video highlights the “Frank Klees Leadership Kit” that included hair gel, teeth whitener and self-tanning materials intended to mock Mr. Klees’ appearance.

John Laforet writes more about this at Laforet.ca:

“I promised I would show the attack buttons the Liberal Caucus Services Bureau (a publicly funded, partisan arm of the Premier’s Office that is used entirely for partisan purposes). Unfortunately, after my first video, Liberal staffers steered clear and no buttons, press releases or other liberal attacks were dropped off.

I did get my hands on a couple of the ‘Frank Klees Leadership Kits’ I had seen Liberal Caucus Services Bureau and Minister’s Office staff handing out earlier in the day. That’s what you’ll see in the video below. It’s another bizarre attack and a total waste of taxpayer resources by Dalton McGuinty to advance his partisan interests. This has nothing to do with policy, or even Queen’s Park for that matter – it’s taxpayer money doing the bidding of the Ontario Liberal Party. It is also literally a ’skin deep’ attack on a man who had the courage to seek to lead his party.” Read more.

Liberals Distribute Inane Anti-PC Attacks to Media

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

Ontario Liberal Staffers at the Ontario PC Leadership convention distributed multiple sets of ridiculous attack materials to the media concerning the phrase “the road ahead” and with misinformation about the process and Randy Hillier’s support of Tim Hudak.

John Laforet writes at Laforet.ca:

“I post this with some hesitation. I have said threats will never silence me, but I would be lying if I said they don’t stick in the back of your mind, especially when you do something that you know will ruffle the feathers of the folks who threatened you.

But what the folks at the Ontario Liberal Party, or more appropriately the political staff at Queen’s Park have done this weekend requires comment.

This video […] will cover two press releases I received from two Liberal staffers that were being distributed to all media. They can hardly say they didn’t want it covered, but they may not like my angle.”
