Canadian Politician Drops Out Of Parliament Race After Video Of Him Pissing In A Voters Coffee Mug Surfaces

TORONTO — A Toronto businessman who had been running for Parliament with Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s party made the wrong kind of splash and is out of the race after being caught on video urinating in a coffee cup. The tinkling tale of Jerry Bance, who had been filmed while working as an appliance repairman, caps a bad week for Harper. The prime minister now faces re-election as Canada has entered a recession. The Canadian Broadcast Corp. used hidden cameras in 2012 to record Bance peeing into the cup and pouring it down the sink while on a service call. The homeowner was in the next room. Bance runs an appliance repair company, and the CBC was reporting on home repair companies. Bance had been running in a Toronto district in the Oct. 19 election, but a Conservative party spokesman said Monday “Mr. Bance is no longer a candidate.” Bance said in a statement he “deeply regrets” the incident and it doesn’t reflect who he is as person or professional.

 

 

Listen, I’m not a political strategist and I don’t claim to be.  I don’t know the ins and outs of that particular profession.  The people who hold those occupations know how to tap into the specific constituencies of their candidate and tell them what they want to hear. That’s a tool I don’t have in my tool box. I stand in awe of people who are able to do it. With all of that said, I know enough about people to say that pissing in a voters coffee cup is not a solid way to get votes.  It’s just not. Off the top of my head I wouldn’t wanna vote for a guy who is cool with pissing in something I’ll later drink out of.  You especially can’t do this in Canada.  What we just watched in that video is the meanest thing a Canadian person has ever done.  Bar none.  Willingly pissing all up in some nice lady’s coffee mug?  Impossible to get elected after that.  In America that’s like going on a 6-state killing spree and also publicly supporting Jared Fogle.  Unforgivable in the land of poutine.  On second thought, we’re talking about a place that once had a crack-smoking mayor so maybe I don’t know what the hell I’m talking.  Maybe Canadians love getting their kitchenware urinated into.  Like I said up top, I’m not a political strategist.
