Cabinet minister doesn't deny pre-election role

Earlier, Public Eye reported information from a government insider that British Columbia executive council member Rick Thorpe was dividing his time between running the revenue ministry and working on pre-election business for the provincial Liberals. Today, we caught up with the minister at the legislature and asked him for details on that pre-election business. At first, Minister Thorpe said he didn't "understand the question." But when pressed, he eventually responded by stating, "I do whatever I have to do to get our government re-elected."
