State assembly woman for Bukit Lanjan is one strong woman. Although in my opinion, what was dealt to her was in someway akin to sexual assault of the highest order. Truth is, Elizabeth Wong had been RAPED!
That was in essence, what she said here in her statement regarding the issue. (Malaysiakini)
To me it seems her enemies (and who else could it be? She’s a politician from Anwar Ibrahim’s party!) have run out of ideas to destory her.
You see, I don’t think Eli Wong can be bought with 3-4million RM, or that she can be ‘threatened’ to cross over to BN. What better way to destroy her?
Probably, this is just a first of a series of assault that would take happen to Pakatan Rakyat’s MPs, State assemblypersons, supporters, etc.
But on the other hand, as Jed Yoong pointed out in the comment section (and which I actually mentioned to Elizabeth in the morning), it could also be “an enemy within” – power struggle within the party,etc. It is possible, given the current situation in Pakatan politics.
I spoke to her at 7am on Sunday morning and she was still in high spirits! She was already in the office! I told her not to give in to such gutter politics. That I would stand with her.
It was really very early but Eli Wong already knew that there would be calls for her resignation. Hmm…Khir Toyo?
It’s just too bad I was away from my laptop and internet, and missed all the fury in online news and blogs. I am glad to see lots of support for her.
I’ve never been a fan of sleazy politics. In fact it annoys me terribly when newspapers carry sloppy and sleazy news, as if there is nothing better to do!(read this).
I don’t remember judging former Health Minister Chua Soi Lek when he was caught in a video tape with his pant down. I’ve not asked him to resign. I was glad he took responsibility for his action.
Tourim Minister Azalina Othman, too, have been the target of these low lives. Don’t even start me on Anwar Ibrahim and his ‘mattress’ scandal.
As in Altantuya Shariibuu case and Abdul Razak Baginda, I am really more interested in who allegedly ordered her to be C4-ed and the purported corruption deal that led to her gruesome murder.
Newspapers really plunge to an ultimate low when they cover stories like these, especially when it s merely done to scandalised or cause ill repute to a people’s life by carrying stories like these.
It tells a lot about Malaysian politics, and the dumps we have descended to. It seems the nearer it is to Najib Tun Razak becoming the 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia – on April Fool’s Day this year, the more SHIT we see on the political horizons!
