Wappel, Tom

Scarborough-East Member of Parliament who recently told one of his constituents to screw off when the constituent asked for help after refusing to vote for him. Hard to say where Wappel learned his democratic practices given that he hadn’t yet been born in 1933, but somebody needs to point out to him that this is a constitutional democracy in which an elected politician represents all of his constituents, not just the ones who kiss his ass or give him money. The most frightening aspect of Wappel’s unenthusiastic apologies for his brainless behavior is that the Federal Liberals didn’t drop-kick him out of the party but rather treated the whole thing as a minor indiscretion that maybe had some justification.
