BREAKING NEWS - Swift Currrent NDP Jeff Potts Candidate Gets Outed as Famouspipeliner

UPDATE - Jeff Potts is now officially gone...
(Damn... this was getting fun)

CBC story here...




This is why the NDP Boogeyman exists.

As reported on CBC Saskatchewan this AM.

The NDP candidate in Swift Current is Jeff Potts. On Rabble.ca discussion board (Babble), the well known left leaning site, he is know as Famouspipeliner.

In the past months, Potts, as Famouspipeliner, has made numerous false comments about his Saskatchewan Party opponent, who just happens to be Brad Wall, leader of the Sask Party. Those comments included;

  • Mr. Wall's father owns a number of rental properties in Swift Current and has forced tenants to place SK Party signs on their lawns
  • One of these properties is a well known crack house
  • Brad Wall stole $15,000 of liquor from the SLGA for his wedding

The problem is that none of these statements are true. Mr. Walls's father does not own rental properties and the SK Party has a letter from the SLGA that Mr. Wall did not take any liquor.

In his defence, Potts claims that because he believes the Sask Party was lying, he was doing it as well.

The Sask Party is calling upon Lorne Calvert not to sign Pott's nomination papers...

In the final two of Famouspipeliner's posts, posted on October 20th on the Saskatchewan Election thread, Potts claims...

"The shit really hits the fan for the SP this week and they don't know what's coming." and "Actually people, our plan is to tell the truth and to use democratic means to seize control of the government. Wall's campaign is already falling apart...more to follow."

Contrarian, yet strangely prophetic....

UPDATE - The Saskatchewan Party issues a media release

We've been talking about Jeff Potts and Rabble's Babble for a lot longer. About time the spotlight focused on the 'grassroots' of the socialist movement.
