‘EXCLUSIVE’ BREAKING NEWS: DID CHRISTY CLARK’S NEW PRESS GURU COMMIT TO AN OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE THE FIRST TIME AROUND???
As you all know, Mike Morton is a very skilled press man. I’ve made this point repeatedly.
On Sunday last, he appeared on the Sean Leslie show, and among the fluff and softballs, he spun, twisted, messaged…
…and lied. This is what we’ve come to expect of the Clark group, but do you notice that the deeper she gets, the more frequent the BC Rail players are trotted out to protect her???
What?! What BC Rail players? Mr. Morton? And his unimpeachable integrity? The love in with Sean Leslie was nausea-inducing, to be sure, but nothing could strike fear into the heart of man who thinks he’s going to get an easy ride than lying about me.
I DID NOT receive any document(s), not now, not ever from Dave Basi or Bob Virk. Ever. Never. Morton is delusional if he thinks I’m going to let him get away with that…considering his own history of deflection and stick-handling where the corrupt sale of BC Rail is concerned.
Last week, after I released the Basi memo implicating Christy Clark as a serial leaker of Cabinet information, I received the following email from someone in Victoria.
I have removed only the last paragraph as it could identify this person.
Have a careful read:
“When the legislature was raided in 2003, the BC Liberals needed a place to hide evidence that they didn’t want to turned over to police. A large stack of boxes was moved from the Premiers office to room 088-A of the parliament buildings. These boxes were labelled “Premier Gordon Campbell’sfiles” and “Lara Dauphinee’s files”. There was all kinds of Cabinet information including BC rail documents. One example of documents was that there was polling information on BC Rail that Basi/Virk defence asked for in pre-trial, but they were told by the judge “this is a fishing expedition”. Meanwhile the information was intentionally hidden.
The hiding room is in the East annex, occupied by BC government members. The reason for moving them to this location was that MLA business was covered under “vote one”. There was no obligation to turn this evidence over as the court did not have a right to see it. A funny thing happened though in June of 2010. The judge ordered MLA information regarding BC Rail to be turned over. It was a huge, precedent setting decision that shocked the BC Liberals. This created a huge problem for the BC Liberals.
A cover up ensued and evidence, was disposed of. There is a lot of email evidence to support this if an Liberal MLA were to request this of their
Caucus. How did they manage to cover up this evidence?
A man named Mike Morton was dispatched to the Government Caucus in the form of Executive Director. In this role he was able to masterfully juggle all the parts of trial, from paying the Lawyers representing MLAs, (including Christy Clark) to making sure the information requested by the defence was never turned over, to spinning media away from the truth. Many people think that it was “just time” for Mike Morton to move on from press secretary, and they are dead wrong. The premiers office was so pissed off by Mike Morton “fucking up” by sitting at the Omnitrax lobbying table, he
was told by Martyn Brown “you fucked up, you fix it”.
So now you see BC Rail clean-up man, Mike Morton ride to the rescue in Christy Clark’s premier’s office. He arrived within days of your news hitting the
premiers office. You think he is there because he is qualified? He is that, but it is not the reason.”
Some context: Mike Morton, while employed as a staffer to the Premier (Gordon Campbell) saw nothing wrong with sitting at the table of OmniTRAX during the 2003 BC Liberal Leader’s Dinner. A key staffer in the Premier’s office saw nothing wrong with sitting at the table of one of the bidders through an ACTIVE process.
Now, um, Mike…still there? Care to comment on all of this? Already dispatched goons to that room to remove anything that’s left???
The author of the above email is not some quack. They clearly know a lot more than just this. They’re sending you a very strong message–through me.
More so, they’re suggesting you committed an obstruction of justice. Did you, Sir? Did you do that?
And another thing: Why did you pay Christy Clark’s legal bill? She was gainfully employed at CKNW in June of 2010. Why did taxpayers pick up her legal tab. Can you explain any of this? Did you talk to her about it? What about your good friend Brian Kieran? Did you ever talk to him about any of this?
I’m sure it’s just a big old misunderstanding and you’re as lily white as the Premier with respect to the sale of BC Rail.
Welcome back, Mike. Aren’t you glad you were so chatty with your buddy Seaner on the weekend?
This is just round one.
Let’s see how you’re faring by early evening.
After you’ve cleaned yourself, first.
A CHALLENGE TO THE MEDIA: Ask Mr. Morton to release the billings of the lawyers he paid on behalf of MLAs and the justification for it (this is with respect to Basi-Virk). Also, why Ms. Clark’s lawyer, too? She was no longer in government, long out of it, in fact. There was no obligation to pay her bill, she should be paying her own damn lawyer.
A CHALLENGE TO BC LIBERAL MLAs: How much longer are you going to spit in the face of taxpayers? How much longer are you going to wait? How much more time are you going to allow the embarrassment to remain the most unqualified Premier in BC history? Do you not see that any of her defenders are unworthy of working for the people–who you all continue to disrespect with your silence and complicity???
