Taxman probes actresses

Phwaaaar!!! And you thought that accountants have boring jobs eh?
On page N6 of The Star Deputy Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin proudly announces that BN candidate in the Tenang by-election, one Azahar Ibrahim, is "right for the job". Okay, that's wonderful. But then why does the all-wise Deputy Prime Minister think his man is perfect for the job of serving the people of Tenang? Muhyiddin said that Azahar "has no personal issues or scandals". Huh? That's all that is needed to be a good MP to serve the people's needs? Very strange indeed.
UPDATEAnd now maybe the man is not so right for the job after all. Just a day after the DPM declared Azahar free of scandals PAS has alleged that the man, while Segamat assistant land administrator had carelessly issued an order to sell off property belonging to one Mansor Mohamed without the latter's knowledge. Johor PAS deputy chief Dzulkefly Ahmad claimed today that Azahar had caused a private land to be auctioned illegally in 2003 resulting in a legal action against the Umno man.

My my the DPM sure doesn't have a very good track record for picking candidates does he? Remember the Permatang Pasir Umno candidate whom he also said was squeaky clean and was later discovered to be a disbarred lawyer?
While still on the Tenang by-election, the DPM has made a call for Malaysians not to sensationalise the 'handshake issue". This is in reference to Tenang PAS candidate, Normala Sudirman's apparent reluctance to shake hands with male voters when meeting her constituents. But in the same Sun story the DPM is quoted as saying, "It is up to the voters to judge because she might have her own reasons. We don’t want to exploit the candidate’s personal (matters) ... but we leave it to the voters to judge." And of course recently the MCA's Chua Soi Lek was quoted as saying, "She will not come here (to a Chinese temple), she doesn’t even shake hands with the people. I have received complaints about this.
She is like (PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim’s wife (Datuk Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail). She wears gloves when she shakes hands. If you can accept this kind of Islamic value, go ahead and vote for PAS." And Chua's son Tee Yong who is Labis MP said it was rather odd why "some can shake hands and why some can’t".
Hahahaha..... I suppose our idea of NOT sensationalizing and NOT politicising an issue is quite different from those of the YB's.
