Could it be "Domi-gate"?

From today's National Post.
But while the alleged affair might macho up Domi's testosterone count in male eyes, it will hurt Stronach in the court of public opinion.

While Canadians are far more tolerant of political hanky-panky than Americans and, for the most part, think it's private business best left alone, being named in such graphic terms in a scorned spouse's divorce papers is an image that will stick.
Working the dating circuit hard is a good thing for a single mom like Stronach. But being named as the wrecking ball in the marriage of a sports celebrity - whose claim to fame was hitting first, thinking in the penalty box later - is a political liability.

Domi stands accused of leaving his family for another woman. But the other woman may have sacrificed almost as much for him.
I made a statement to my wife yesterday about this whole thing... "This might just be enough to cost Belinda her seat next time around. There's no way all those little old granny Liberals are going to vote for her."

Those older ladies I refer to may be die-hard Liberals, but they're still old school in many ways... Liberal or not, there's no way they're going to support a "home-wrecker". Times may have changed, and morals may have declined significantly in this country, but a lot of people still despise a "home-wrecker". (and yes, of course he's just a guilty as she is...)

The difference last time was exactly 4800 votes... throw in a few other young mothers who disapprove, and a few Red Tories who fell to the left of the fence last time, and you have yourself an electoral defeat.

"Domi-gate" indeed.

    Belinda is on to some other entertainments in life until she inherits the whole wad.

    See realy rich people desire to run a country just for the kick of it... much like not actually running a company either.

    It would be nice to think that her behaviour would affect polls, but sad to say moral relativism is epidemic now...and 'celebrity status' wins votes...

    "sad to say moral relativism is epidemic now"

    Although some of us would say this is a positive thing and a step in the right direction for our society (again, not that I'm condoning what Tie or Belinda did. If people are going to have extramarital sex all parties should be in agreement, both spouses included).

    apparently this isn't the only marital misunderstanding going around canadian politics.
