MP suspension details leaked

Dear editor,

The details surrounding the suspension of the two male MPs from the Liberal Caucus were bound to leak out sooner or later. The two female NDP MPs have still not agreed for their names to be made public, but one gave a television interview on Nov. 25.

What we learned was that a group of MPs were partying until the wee hours, after which the NDPer agreed to accompany the Liberal to his apartment.

According to her version of what took place next, she didn’t say “yes” and she didn’t say “no” to his advances. However, their spouses or significant others, and their constituents will be delighted to know that she supplied a condom, so they really behaved like responsible people, you may say.

Let’s hope there was no leak in the prophylactic, but stay tuned for more leaks coming out of various shadows in Ottawa. Those of us who watch Question Period, and often wonder why so many MPs are looking so tired so early in the day, have now had our queries put to bed, so to speak.
