Garth Turner and Voo-Doo economics

Stephen Taylor has a blog post on another irregularity in Liberal Garth Turner's campaign.

Garth Turner: "I did not think to change the wording on my website from the Garth Turner campaign to the Halton Liberal Association, so cheque-writers would face no delays or hassles in getting tax receipts. Whoops. Screw up."

The gist is that if Garth moved over $1100 from his Garth Turner trust account, into his Garth Turner Liberal Candidate account, it may be illegal, and he is spending money on his campaign that he is not entitled to spend.

Should Turner be called before a Parliamentary committee, so MPs can study what happened, and make sure this sort of thing never happens again?

You've got to be kidding! A Liberal having to play by the same rules as everyone else. Don't you know that as the cultural and political elite of the country that they may interpret the rules in any way they see fit. And they can do it with the blessing of the federal bureaucracy

Seems a little Shifty to me. But we all know how Garth adores the shift.
