Another conservative elected, another crook revealed

It’s official: our own (not so) beloved Ottawa Mayor Larry O’Brien has been charged with 2 criminal counts relating to his alleged fixing of the 2006 Ottawa Mayoral election to ensure his election and avoid what at the time appeared to be the inevitable election of a gay left-of-centre mayor (gasp!).

The two charges are fraud and influencing or negotiating appointments or dealing in offices.

According to the CBC, OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) representatives and law professors alike can find no historical precedent in recent history of a sitting Canadian mayor having criminal charges levied against them specifically because of issues surrounding their election as Mayor.

Yep, conservatives certainly are the ‘values’ party.

    Relevant to those interested in Ottawa’s politics…though it is written nearly a month ago when it looked like the Ottawa Public Library system was on the chopping block.
