The story of Canadian politician Sam Bulte and her unwillingness to acknowledge how bad it looks for big US entertainment industry types to hold a fundraiser for her days before the election keeps getting sillier. Last week she accused anyone of being concerned about the rights of consumers as being "zealots" -- while also saying that they were trying to silence her voice. As has been pointed out repeatedly, no one is trying to silence her voice -- but to just ask that she also listens to others, something she hasn't shown much interest in doing. In her continued defense, she seems to like redefining things. Michael Geist points out that, despite calling the controversial event a fundraiser on her own website, she's now claiming that the event isn't a fundraiser at all, but "a celebration" for her "support for the arts community." Okay. So, if that's the case, where is all the money from the $250/plate dinner going? To the arts community? Or into her campaign?
