Another #QuickWins bombshell: was a bribe in the works?

The NDP hammered BC Liberal rookie multiculturalism minister Teresa Wat and finance minister Mike de Jong in Question Period on July 15 over an alleged bribery attempt that was uncovered in the nearly 8,000 pages of Quick Wins scandal documents.

A heavily censored Sept. 18, 2012 email originating from multiculturalism communications director Brian Bonney says:

“Have Harry Bloy meet with her and explain how doing anything would damage the Premier and the party. Have him say how he will try to find her work and get her back involved… Assess her response and advise… Have Brian (Bonney) meet with her and do the same… Assess her response and advise… If need be, offer x dollars per month to do non public work up to election (developing her database of potential supporters).”

The identity of the disgruntled staffer is not evident, but speculation is already underway.
