Earlier today I wrote a screed about who I think is really to blame for all the secretive big money political fundraising that is going down all across Lotusland.
And, more importantly (in my opinion at least), I made note of who I think is most responsible for the fact that the public doesn't understand what is actually going on.
But have no fear....
Because the Dean of the Lotuslandian Legislative Press Gallery, Mr. Vaughn Palmer of the Vancouver Sun, is here to explain that it is all the fault of the 1990's era Dippers.
Or some such thing:
...Granted, for three elections New Democrats have promised to end donations from unions and corporations. As (former leader Adrian) Dix himself used to joke during his successful fundraising drive (in the run-up to the 2013 election), “just as we’re getting good at it, we’re planning to get rid of it.”
But they made no move to restrict union and corporate donations when they were in power for two terms in the 1990s...
Please note: stuff in the brackets, above, is mine for context based on Mr. Palmer's entire piece.
