Gender politics?
David Akin flags the oh-so-obvious when he notes that former Conservative Party campaign boss Doug Finley and chief party  fundraiser Irving Gerstein -- both still in caucus despite documented charges of electioneering skullduggery -- are treated far more leniently by Stephen Harper than Helena Guergis was, whose supposed misdeeds, months after she was booted from the Tory caucus, still remain as murky as ever. Why then the double standard? One explanation: The onetime Minister of State for the Status of Women is a woman.
