Yet another Guergis staffer caught writing glowing letters to media outlets
It’s amateur hour in Alliston. Maclean’s is reporting that a letter it received defending the honour of Conservative junior minister Helena Guergis was written by one of her employees. We thought we were seeing double, but no: this isn’t Jessica Craven, the staffer who wrote those other pro-Guergis letters to newspapers. This is Valerie Knight, a spokesperson at the minister’s Alliston constituency office, who sent the missive without declaring her affiliation to Guergis or the Conservative Party.
That’s right. Two different women, apparently working independently of each other and independently of their boss, sent glowing letters to media outlets reporting on Ms. Guergis’s rapidly lengthening list of fiascos. When asked about possible affiliation, Knight told Maclean’s, “I just sit here, have my coffee, get pissed off, write a letter, end of story.”
Sounds like Guergis’s office needs some new spin doctors. This self-medicating clearly isn’t working.
