Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Judge dismisses case against 2 Ont. Liberals accused of bribery

A judge has tossed a case against Ontario Liberals Patricia Sorbara and Gerry Lougheed Jr., accused of violating the Elections Act in the lead up to the 2015 byelection in Sudbury.

Justice Howard Borenstein granted a directed verdict application requested by the defence that called for the charges to be dismissed before the defence called any witnesses.

      You shouldn’t be. He was the best judge that money could buy.

    Why thats a shocker. It’s almost as if the fix was in.

    • Watchman

      Did this bribery case drag on so long because the right people hadn’t received adequate bribery payments to ensure dismissal of charges?

  • Remember when you were little and were told no one was above the law?

    It was like believing in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.

    Good times, eh?

    This was expected. Check the judge’s party membership.

    The justice system, media, and other institutions in Ontario, are tightly controlled by the liberal elites. The peasants are just expected to pay taxes, and enjoy the pervert parades and Trudeau’s funny socks.

    Liberal Party member and supporter judge dismisses all charges against Liberals accused of bribery. There fixed it.

  • CodexCoder

    The only one that was convinced of the accused innocence was the judge. The public at large had already made up their collective minds. So who is the fool: the public or the judge? And no, this is absolutely no surprise.

    It is never Bribery –
    When a Liberal does it.
    Just ask Justin.

    I don’t know anything about the court system, but could somebody explain why a judge of the Toronto region was hearing a case in Sudbury?

      Because they couldn’t be sure of the partiality of the judges in Sudbury

      Good research Jaedo. Note that, from your first post, it was then Liberal Attorney General Michael Bryant who appointed Judge Borenstein to the bench. I forget the particulars in the case, but charges were brought against Bryant for killing a cyclist in a road rage incident. What comes around stays around…

    A wise man of no consequence should always remains downwind, very calm, silent, and watchful when predators size him up. Whether they are from the government or not.
