“This is pure partisan politics,” Liberal House leader Pablo Rodriguez said on Friday, referring to a Conservative motion that would have the House of Commons establish an “anti-corruption committee.” It shouldn’t surprise Rodriguez — an MP with more than a decade of experience in Ottawa — to find partisan politics going on around him.
