Martin Has No Problem With "Under The Table" Payments

An aide now in Prime Minister Martin's office told the sponsorship inquiry that he and two other party workers were paid under the table to work for the Liberals in Quebec.

Gaetano Manganiello said that while working at the party's Montreal headquarters in 1998, he was approached by Benoit Corbeil (boss of the Quebec wing) who told him the party was in dire financial straits and Pluri Design would pick up his salary. Jacques Corriveau (friend of Jean Chretien) owned that firm.

here's the kicker:

Manganiello, now a media officer for the Prime Minister, says he's on a paid leave of absence from his job, so he can appear before the inquiry.

There ya have it folks, not only does the Prime Minister have crooked staffers now working for him, he pays them with your tax dollars to testify about their dirty dealings!

Is anyone else "burnt out" over scandal? I'm almost looking forward to hearing something more interesting like "Paul Martin severed some guys hand" for not supporting the Liberals.

Would you call me apathetic?

Just remember to watch out where the huskies go and don't dare eat that yellow snow. (from the gospel according to the late Frank Zappa)
And also remember that SpongeBob uses the ocean as his bathroom.
