And now she’s resigning: Helena Guergis steps down from cabinet

Fridays are the best when it comes to the media. It’s the one day of the week that officials unload stories that they’d prefer the public not care or read about. The Harper Tories have become masters of this particular trick, and this Friday is no different: CP24 is reporting that Helena Guergis is stepping down from her junior cabinet post as the scandal surrounding her and her husband, Rahim Jaffer, continues to boil over. The precise reason she gave for leaving is unclear, so here are several to choose from:

• she’s married to a scandal-plagued former MP with shady ties • her staff writes fawning letters about her to newspapers • she yelled at airport officials for asking her to take off her boots • she called P.E.I. a “hellhole”

• Helena Guergis resigns as junior cabinet minister amid scandal [Twitter]
