Guilt-by-association tactics by Liberals backfires.
Personally, I think the guilty-by-association tactic is dumb and pointless.
People should be judged by their own actions, not who they may have known or come across at some point in their lives.
However, if the Liberals want to play that game, then it’s only fair for them to be held to the same standard.
The Liberals have been attacking the Conservatives, because a current Conservative candidate happens to have been friends with Faith Goldy.
Yet, the Liberals have now been forced onto the defensive, after Scheer brought up allegations that Justin Trudeau once bought Faith Goldy drinks at the Chateau Laurier.

Here’s what Scheer said at an announcement:
“I look forward to Justin Trudeau‘s response to allegations that he took Faith Goldy out for drinks”
The Liberals have now responded:
In Andrew Scheer’s news conference today, he made reference to an allegation (that has surfaced on twitter) that Justin Trudeau has drinks with Faith Goldy. Here’s the liberal war room response: pic.twitter.com/tVVInKChQn

While the Liberals response is witty, they are now facing the reality of their guilt-by-association tactics.
Even the fact that taking someone out for drinks is being referred to as “allegations” is absurd, since it’s obviously not a crime.
But if the Liberals want to demonize everyone who ever knew or interacted with Faith Goldy, they will be held to the same standard.
They must answer the same questions they raise about their opponents, and the hypocrisy is out of control.
