Pathetic denial

Muhyiddin Yassin keeps denying that there is controversy over their choice of Rohaizat Othman as the UMNO candidate in the Permatang Pasir by-election. “There is no controversy. Only the Opposition (sic) wants to create the controversy. We have done our homework. We checked and as far as the law is concerned, he is clear."

Poor guy, he is clearly deluded. And still in deep denial. He still thinks that UMNO is the government in Penang. He needs to wake up. Muhyiddin, let's keep one thing very straight: YOU are the Opposition in Penang, not the Pakatan Rakyat state government!

At the same time, it's interesting to read the Bar Council's statement yesterday on the same matter. According to The Malaysian Insider:
The Bar Council has confirmed that Barisan Nasional’s (BN) candidate for the Permatang Pasir by-election, Rohaizat Othman, was found guilty of misconduct last year and struck off the rolls

In a statement today, Bar Council secretary George Varughese said the Advocates and Solicitors Displinary Board disbarred Rohaizat on March 7, 2008.

“The Disciplinary Board’s decision arose from an investigation into the complaint lodged against Rohaizat Othman by the purchaser of a piece of real property. According to the complaint, Rohaizat Othman failed to refund almost RM 161,000 to the complainant after the transaction was aborted,” said Varughese. He said Rohaizat had also appealed to the High Court against the decision of the disciplinary board. The appeal was dismissed by the High Court last Wednesday. Varughese added that the finding of misconduct was personal to Rohaizat as the disciplinary board would not hold a lawyer liable for the actions of his partners.
Now I'm wondering whether they were talking about the same law!

Law of the jungle - BN recognizes let them be. Two wrongs don't make one right - I guess the rakyat will judge the waffler for what he is. Sure - he blames his partner but guess what....who gets his license struck off! Liar liar pants on fire.
