Poor Old Joe.. He's Just Trying To Get Ahead

Coming to the rescue of embattled hopeful Joe Volpe, in this morning's Ottawa Citizen, Alfonso Gagliano:
"History repeats itself. Whenever an Italian-Canadian tries to go up and succeed in politics, somebody tries to do something to bring him down,"" said Gagliano, comparing Volpe's troubles to his own...
Poor old Joe. All those donations from 11 year olds and the signing up dead party members - he's just trying to go up and succeed in politics, and nobody would object if he weren't Italian.

It's just a hunch, but if I wonder if the Volpe campaign might just be wishing they didn't have friends like Alfonso right now.
