Is this what Tim Hudak meant when he promised to put hardened criminals in your neighbourhood?*

Protestors “jostled” the upstanding Ontario PC candidate from Niagara Falls, a real family values type. That, or his Blackberry operates all on its own.

And Tim Hudak wants to be Premier? And George Lepp is the kind of guy we want in the provincial parliament?

Maybe the PC brain trust will come up with another whacked-out explanation by tomorrow morning, just around the time when the whole country is laughing at Tim Hudak’s sterling commitment to law and order, and his claim that he will soon be cracking down – as he told the Sun in a front page story just this morning – on “pervs,” quote unquote.  If you’re in his caucus, you get a free pass, I guess.

Here’s a bit of the story the Sun broke tonight, and will likely have on their front page tomorrow:

“Rookie PC candidate George Lepp says he’s embarrassed that a photo of his family jewels was posted on his campaign Twitter account for about 20 minutes before it was quickly unzipped.

Alan Sakach, communications director for the Ontario Conservatives, said the photo was inadvertently taken by Lepp’s BlackBerry when it was in his front pocket. The photo was posted after someone took it from the candidate for the riding of Niagara Falls, according to Sakach.

“He is pretty upset and embarrassed,” Sakach said of a photo that was posted on Lepp’s account Sunday. “It was removed as soon as it came to his attention.”

The Toronto Sun obtained grainy copies of the Twitter page images before they were removed.

The pictures — too graphic to reproduce in the newspaper — are of a man naked from the waist down, showing a close up of his penis and his crossed legs.

Sakach said the device was operating on camera mode in his front pant pocket when it went missing. He added that Lepp suspects it was taken as he was jostled by protesters outside the Dixon Rd. convention centre where the Tories met for the party’s weekend convention.

Sakach said he didn’t know if police were called about the stolen BlackBerry.”

You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

BCL has more, NSFW (or anywhere else). GC, too (even more NSFW).  Already, professional reporters are laughing at the claim – by Tim Hudak’s spokesman, no less – that George Lepp’s Blackberry took those photo all on its own.

Gives “Blackberry Bold” a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?

    So his magic blackberry took the picture while the phone was in his pocket, but managed to make it look like he wasn’t wearing pants?

    “BlackBerry Curve,” too.

    I see RIM stole technology from those old “x-ray specs” that were advertised in old comic books. Guaranteed to make it look like you aren’t wearing clothes.

    Alternate punchline:

    “The PC are committed to 100% transparency!”

  5. Dave says:

    Maybe I’m just going soft, but that little criminal doesn’t look very hardened to me.

    Incredible, i.e. not credible.
