Bunch up everyone to make room for Steve's latest Perp with Perks, Saulie Zajdel.
Arrested today and facing five counts of corruption, breach of trust, and fraud from 2006 to 2011 in the anti-corruption sweep that also bagged the mayor of Montreal, Zajdel is better known to us as the guy who was put on the public payroll as a "cultural liaison" by Heritage Min James Moore for an alleged $60G's to act as the Cons' shadow pretend MP in Irving Cotler's riding after he lost to him in the 2011 election.
Here's Steve campaigning for Zajdel three days before Election Day.
Here's Nick Kouvalis from Campaign Research defending their "reprehensible" calls made into the riding on Steve and Zajdel's behalf implying Cotler would not run.
After his election loss to Cotler, Zajdel gave speeches in the Mount Royal riding, such as one advertised as : “How the Federal Government Relates to Israel.”
A 2011 election campaign vid uploaded by Zajdel, along with the tagline :
"Let us thank our prime minister Stephen Harper for how he supports the land of Israel, he is its strongest advocate of any leader in the world."
