ScantilyCladWoman-gate

Finally, we understand why James Moore is deemed less competent for a Cabinet position than Gordon O'Connor, Michael Fortier, or Jason Kenney - he's a pervert. Yes, NDP MP Irene Mathyssen, has dropped the bombshell that I can only imagine will splash across the front page of the Globe & Mail tomorrow morning. Rather than snoozing, heckling, or pretending to laugh at Peter Van Loan's jokes, James Moore spent question period...on the Internet...looking at...a scantily clad woman!

"There was an image of a scantily clad woman in very flimsy lingerie" on the computer of Parliamentary Secretary for Public Works James Moore, New Democrat MP Irene Mathyssen told reporters. "It was dark in color and she was a brunette."

"It was, I would say, not hard porn by any stretch," she said.

"I would describe it as soft porn, Playboy-type stuff .


My first thought upon reading this was: ewww...Irene Mathyssen is, like, some sort of pornography classification expert. But those unnerving thoughts quickly turned to feelings of anger and rage. While Moore has flimsily tried to defend himself, this is perhaps Canada's biggest sex scandal since the Munsinger Affair. I am therefore proud to be the first to call for a full public inquiry in order to answer the following lingering questions:

Was Stephen Harper aware of this? Just how flimsy was her lingerie? Was this "playboy-type" soft porn or "Toronto Sun-type" soft porn? Is she Moore's "girlfriend" as reported in some stories or just his "friend" as reported in others? Are they "in a relationship" on facebook or are they at "it's complicated"? If she's single, what is her phone number? Given it's a sex scandal, I assume Peter MacKay must be somehow involved - how? Who is Irene Mathyssen and why have we never heard about her before? Did James Moore ever donate money to Jean Charest's leadership campaign? Has he ever signed golf balls? Did he dream of being a back bench MP when he was in kindergarten?

Canadians demand answers. We're mad as hell and, come hell or high water, we need to get to the bottom of this!

  • I find Mathyssen's views on pornography FRIGHTENINGLY puritanical. Actually she looks a lot like the leader of the fundamentalists in the game Alpha Centauri:

  • It's not his high school locker. It's the house of commons.

    It's inappropriate conduct in the House. He needs to grow up and do his job.

  • As I'm writing this I have a picture of my grandson on my desktop. When I restart my computer, that picture comes up as my desktop background. Could he have done the same?

  • but she loves dancing with the nudies in the local Gay Pride parades.

    That's ok. Maybe she just hates heteros.

  • What should she have done? It's not like she has an HR rep to talk to. It's inappropriate for a workplace setting, even if it was his girlfriend. I don't think she should apologize at all.

  • I'm looking for the NDPer to apologize in the House today. Apparently the "soft pornographic" picture was of his Signigicant Other in bathing suit attire, and their dog.

    And the comparison/linkage to the Montreal Massacre ib the same breath by the NDPer? Odious, simply odious.

  • I think they are both idiots.

    There is a time and place for everything. He is an MP, at work in a public place on the taxpayer's dime. Save the personal pics for home. At my last job, we had a coworker who had a picture of his girlfriend in a bikini as his PC's desktop and was told to remove it because, while it isn't porn by any means, it's not really appropriate for a professional work environment. This is no different.

    She's an idiot because she could have approached him privately and resolved this without turning it into a media circus.

  • An additional question is: why are Conservatives MPs bringing their laptop into the House of Commons if they are not going to work? For example, perhaps Anders is writing a sci-fi novel while he sits silently in the House.

  • Since Mathyssen considers herself a pornography expert she should be aware that pornography is not defined by state of dress, but by what sexual activity is taking place. A picture of someone in flimsy lingerie is not porn, soft or hard, unless they are engaging in sexual activity (including solo).

    What a fucking moron!

    (Ok I made that up).

  • Hmmm,

    I always figured he wasn't in Cabinet because he voted in favour of same-sex marriage.

  • Wouldn't you want something to do while Dion is talking about something no one cares about? Lets face it we all have those people at work that we tune out and do other things. and alot of companies let you put your own desktop backgrounds and such on the computers....CP rail for example. damn winnipeg branch area....

  • As loopy as our Parliament is, at least it isn't the US where the House just passed a law making WiFi providers and ISPs responsible for the content users access on their services.

    If you download obscene material, the hotel or internet café whose service you used can be fined $300,000.

    New Bill Would Make WiFi Hotspots, Email Providers, ISPs Responsible for Obscene Content

  • Mathyssen*s distortional reach from what could have been a Victoria Secret ad to the slaying of women in a Quebec University shows such a wild lack of logic it should disqualify her from office.

    Even those who *never watch television* realize that every second advert features a scantily clad woman.

    Moore*s dog is brunette BTW.= TG

    I was going to comment on a decent NDP blogsite and then I realized. . . I am not aware of ANY decent NDP blogsite.

    Any ideas? = TG

  • CG, Mock indignation? . . .

    **Canadians demand answers. We're mad as hell and, come hell or high water, we need to get to the bottom of this!**

    Could we put this on the back burner or write it off as an NDP error and go to priority One?

    Promote the Electric Car across Canada. Zenn and Dynasty [NEVs], have just been DOT approved.

    Why is this important?

    EVs and Brazil*s 90% turn to E-85 fuels lead a trend to $50 barrel oil.

    Lowers the Saudi funding for terrorist producing Madrasses world wide.

    Reduces the bluster from our friends Acmahdinejad and Chavez.

    Puts gas money in my bank not the ExxonMobile bank. = TG

  • here's a scandal ALL Canadians can get behind.

    Our " betters" in TCOTU, aka Toronto, are demanding the Army be called in.

    If this happens concerned citizens want to know what the exit plan is and how the POW issues will be dealt with.

    "T.O. councillor wants army to battle gang violence

    Updated Thu. Dec. 6 2007 2:21 PM ET

    toronto.ctv.ca

    A Toronto councillor wants to bring in the army to curb the gun and gang violence plaguing his troubled north ward.

    Giorgio Mammoliti, who represents York West, admits the idea may be a little "out there," but he says he is desperate to find a solution. He says gang members in the area are as bad as terrorists.

    "I'm not talking about tanks, I'm not talking about armed guards on corners, I'm not talking about any of that," Mammoliti said of his plan on Thursday.

    "I'm talking about bringing the resources and the tools that the army has at their fingertips to be able to resolve the problem immediately, so the army is a good way to do that"

    That's offensive. Couldn't you have used another word? What's the number for the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal? I bet you were celebrating today instead of memorializing, weren't you Calgary Lepine Grit!!!!

  • ScantilyCladWoman-gate does show how the national parties operate:

    Conservatives: Say or deny something, then do it.

    NDP: Yell and complain, no matter how small or meaningless it is.

    Liberals: Do nothing. (Given the state of the party, that was a rare wise decision made.)
