Prime Minister Stephen Harper has officially endorsed the controversial Conservative MP Rob Anders. The scandalous Calgary MP has previously faced sheer criticism for calling Nelson Mandela a terrorist and falling asleep in the Commons and more. Mr. Anders is said to be having a difficult time running against a former provincial cabinet minister, Ron Liepert.
However, the excessively experienced 17-year MP has succeeded in bagging an endorsement from the prime minister. According to Anders’ website, Mr. Harper has said that “Rob Anders has been a strong voice in our Caucus and Conservative Government as well as a valued member of our team.” Additionally, the website quotes Harper saying that “The Road to 2015 is one that needs strong, stable leadership and I’ve been able to count on Rob to get real results for his riding and our country.”
