LeBreton dealt with dozens of demands and requests, particularly when Senate seats became available. Seven prominent Tories explicitly asked for appointments: I had John Reynolds on the phone lobbying for a Senate seat for himself, and giving me this pitch that it should be someone that could go on the talk shows. I said, "Gee, John, I haven't noticed you being out there." (1)
Marjorie LeBreton is the consummate crony. She knows all the games and who will scratch her back. She's had years of practice.
But her latest comments about one of the most undemocratic maneuvers in our history, is the last straw.
She must resign immediately.
