Lim Guan Eng corrupt? What a joke — Penang Man
SEPT 25 — Gerakan and Barisan Nasional’s (BN) mudslinging jokers should just give up because their relentless attempts at portraying Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng as corrupt only allows voters to see them for what they are.
And what they are, are a bunch of hypocritical jokers with no integrity that my fellow Penangites threw out of power in 2008.
I urge Penangites, Malaysians and the Penang CM to not take Gerakan seriously.
Gerakan Youth vice-chief Tan Kah Leong, BN Tanjung Youth chief H’ng Khoon Leng and Nibong Tebal MP Tan Tee Beng — all three are jokers, or should I call them The Three Stooges — accused Guan Eng this week of doctoring a tenancy agreement of his rented residence they had demanded to see.
What may I ask was the point of the original demand?
And now that the document has been revealed to show that the house was rented for RM5,000 a month and that the CM tops up the amount of RM1,000 from his own pocket to make up the difference from his RM4,000 a month housing allowance, the three men have no other response but to say they stand by their accusations.
This reminds me of the last attempt to smear the CM’s image by suggesting his son was involved in a sex scandal, before it was proven that the allegation was all lies and fabrication.
So I would like to ask these Three Stooges if any Umno, MCA or Gerakan leader can pass the living-beyond-one’s-means test to prove they are not corrupt?
Ask most Penangites if they feel they are better off today than in 2008 and the answer is likely to be a resounding yes.
So if BN wants to ever rule Penang again, it had better show voters that it has some ideas on what it can offer.
Or are these Three Stooges the best they can offer?
