Who the hell is Owen Lippert and why are the Tories throwing him under the bus?
Statement by Owen Lippert:
'Since the beginning of the election campaign, I have been employed by the Conservative Party of Canada at Conservative Campaign Headquarters.
'In 2003, I worked in the Office of the Leader of the Opposition. I was tasked with -- and wrote -- a speech for the then Leader of the Opposition. Pressed for time, I was overzealous in copying segments of another world leader’s speech. Neither my superiors in the Office of the Leader of the Opposition nor the Leader of the Opposition was aware that I had done so.
'I apologize to all involved and have resigned my position from the Conservative campaign.
Typical Tory MO. Find some obscurity to take the blame.
This is Owen Lippert.
