Sebastien Togneri, the senior ministerial aide who ordered the "unrelease" of a sensitive document last July that might have cast a negative light on the Harper government, testified before the House of Commons ethics committee today.
He was reportedly less than impressive--bumblingly hesitant and unclear in his answers. Conservative MP Greg Rickford (Kenora) to the rescue! Magic word!
[He] took committee chair Paul Szabo to task for the general tone of the hearing, which Mr. Rickford said had been “politicized.” Then he mentioned the money that went missing a decade ago in the Liberal sponsorship scandal.
It is not reported whether or not the Liberals on the committee instantly disappeared in a puff of smoke. Not that they don't routinely do that anyway, of course.
