The Tories have been quick to jump all over retired General Andrew Leslie's retirement relocation expenses.
I'll bet they wouldn't have said a word if only he'd accepted their overtures to join Team Harper when his soldiering days were over. According to Leslie, the Cons came courting but he turned them down.
In a speech full of irony and sly asides, retired lieutenant general Andrew Leslie said he talked with "other political parties" when he left the Canadian Army, and in the end chose to become a Liberal.
"One of the other parties didn't take to this too well," he told his audience at the Liberal convention in Montreal.
Leslie explained that he told that party, "It wasn't you, it was me.
"But after this last week, let's be honest, it was really them," he said, referring doubtlessly to Defence Minister Rob Nicholson's comment that Leslie's moving expenses were "grossly excessive," and that he would be conducting a review.
I guess it's true, hell hath no fury like a Harper scorned.
