As part of Sun media's "Damn Foreigners" campaign, by which they attack Michael Ignatieff for being part of the clear foreign clique that red-blooded Canadians simply don't approve of, Lilley had this substantial article plastered as front page news in today's Toronto Sun:
Michael Ignatieff has some 'splainin' to do.That's right. Brian Lilley's considerable "talent" was wasted on breaking this huge story sure to blow the entire lid off the campaign the Liberals have been running. Damnit, why did no one do a background check! It was probably on Facebook!
As the Liberal leader scoots across the country asking for your vote, it seems he has forgotten where he has voted in the past.
Ignatieff now claims he has never voted in a foreign country, but quotations from his past suggest he voted Labour in Britain and would vote Democrat in the U.S.
If this is honestly the best scandal Canada's vested conservative interest groups can bring out against Michael Ignatieff, alongside attacking his wife, they are in some serious trouble. I can see it getting a mention somewhere in the paper - but the front page? You wasted people's subscription money on that crap? No wonder you have to sell your papers for so low - it's a bloody rag, not a publication worth people's time.
And word to the wise, Lilley - do you remember every time you've voted in your life? So he skipped over a time he voted in a 1997 election, so what? And he clearly didn't vote for in the United States elections, because as you pointed out, he's not a citizen. Of course, don't let facts get in the way of the most trumped-up scandal since wafergate.
Just get it over with and become a failed Ontario PC candidate somewhere, will you?
