The sick turd is back

Back in the fold: Dimitri Soudas joining Patrick Brown's campaign team

Stephen Harper’s former communications director and long-time political staffer Dimitri Soudas is joining Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown’s campaign team, according to a party source.
“Dimitri will be volunteering his time and will be providing campaign advice leading up to and during the election,” said the source.
Asked about his involvement, Soudas told iPolitics he would “rather not provide a comment.” Brown’s office was not commenting either.
Soudas is currently a managing partner at the consulting firm Stampede Group but he spent nine years in Ottawa, primarily working for Harper. Soudas first joined Prime Minister Harper’s team as his press secretary in 2003 and was appointed Harper’s director of communications in 2010.
He left the PMO in September 2011 and became executive director of the Conservative party towards the end of 2013. Soudas soon found himself at the centre of controversy after it was reported that he interfered in the Conservative nomination race for the newly-created riding of Oakville North-Burlington.
