All week the Liberals have been calling for Helena Guergis's head on a platter. It was found out that staff members of hers were caught in a letter writing campaign to praise Helena after she had a bad time since the airport temper tantrum episode.
It appears Liberals have been involved in the same sort shenanigans.
I don't condone what Helena's staff did, I think what her staff members have done is just plain wrong so are the Liberal staffers too. No party should be doing this sort of stuff. If its wrong for Conservatives, it's wrong for Liberals as well. There should be no double standard. in the behavior of MPs or their staff in any party. When they engage in this that is unbecoming, they are all equally guilty.
OTTAWA — Helena Guergis is not the only politician to be praised in letters to the editor by her own staff members masquerading as ordinary Canadians.
Indeed, as reported during the 2005 federal election, Liberal Party operatives, mainly from the youth wing, initiated a letter-writing campaign to media outlets across the country praising Paul Martin’s national child-care proposal and bashing Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
One of the many letters was reportedly written by a former speech writer for Jean Chretien and another by a once national director of the Young Liberals.
In those instances none of the authors identified their ties to the party.

NDP MP Pat Martin's assistant, Ellen Ocran was involved in leading the protest at the UofO last week against Anne Coulter. Where oh where are you Bob Fife and Terry Mileskwi on this one? Oh ya, right, this one doesn't involve Conservative staff. Another example of a double standard.
