Carson - the gift that keeps on giving.

And the Carson story continues to produce boulders in front of the Conservative bus. 

The Halifax Chronicle-Herald is reporting that the head of the RCMP, Commissioner William Elliot, was involved in the original security screening of Bruce Carson back in 2006.  Commissioner Elliott, at the time, was a conservative party staffer and national security advisor in the Privy Council Office. 

Um, while there may be nothing to suggest Commissioner Elliott's prior involvement in this file somehow taints the RCMP influence-peddling investigation into Carson, it is VERY bad optics for the PM and the Conservative Party of Canada.
