We've gone from convicting Helena Guergis and Rahim Jaffer to wondering if Prime Minister Stephen Harper dumped the junior minister too quickly. It's been a busy and hectic week keeping up with all of the scoops, rumours and gossip about Guergis and Jaffer and you can be sure this story is not done yet.
On Thursday morning the allegation was that there were photographs of "Jaffer and Guergis partying with high-class escorts when cocaine was being snorted" and by the weekend the line was that Harper acted in haste.

Ignatieff won't say that directly but he's been hinting at it since his media availability after caucus last Wednesday.
As for Prime Minister Harper, with the allegations in the public and much discussion about them, he should offer some explanation for why he found the allegations so credible that he had to act as swiftly as he did.
