Federal Conservative MP Tony Clement got himself into trouble and not only is he leaving his post, the RCMP had to be brought in to clean up his dirty little mess.
Not everyone understands this whole Internet thing. My mother came into it about less than a year ago, and she already got bored of Facebook and dropped out, but all she ever did was post funny animal videos and still uses Pinterest for jewelry ideas and funny animal pictures.
This is how you should be sinking your life on social media.
But Clement was not Internet savvy:
"Over the last three weeks, I have shared sexually explicit images and a video of myself to someone who I believed was a consenting female recipient. The recipient was, in fact, an individual or party who targeted me for the purpose of financial extortion," Clement said in a statement.
Once it is on the Internet, it is forever, Mr. Clement. Do not follow the ways of Anthony Weiner. He also got himself in a shitload of trouble. Do not send nudies of yourself to strangers online, especially if you have a cushy high-paying job where you get paper crowns with minimum effort. That’s just fucked up.
I suggest the Tories contact my mother immediately for the job: she is nice to animals, has an artistic flair, is dedicated to social justice of all kinds, and has a minimum interest in the Internet…
