Jaffer's alleged boast about access 'absurd'There are, of course, reasons to investigate this story further. But to all appearances, Jaffer is basically one notch above "drooling simpleton" on the malfeasance scale. So if one con was out to con another, I don't think it necessarily implicates the government in this case.
The Prime Minister's Office has dismissed a disgraced former MP's alleged boasts to his business contacts about access to Stephen Harper's inner circle as "false" and "absurd."
The Toronto Star published an article Thursday alleging Rahim Jaffer, husband of junior cabinet minister Helena Guergis, dined and drank with several prospective clients and prostitutes Sept. 10 — the night of his arrest on charges of drunk driving and cocaine possession.
