I was one of those very sympathetic and supportive of Eli Wong during her most trying times in 2009 – see my post I support Elizabeth Wong; I deplore Khir Toyo's cynical politics.
Even UMNO Minister Mohd Nazri set aside his normal head kicking act for a while to put in a word of sympathy for Eli. And surprise surprise, MCA Chew Mei Fun joined in as well wakakaka.
See my post UMNO's Nazri supports Elizabeth Wong, PKR's Khalid Ibrahim equivocates.
As you can read from the second half of the title of my 2009 post, just above, it had been PKR which was cold towards Eli Wong’s continuing career as an ADUN. I then wrote:
I have to say, in contrast to Nazri Abdul Aziz' correct statement against the contemptible photos and his nice word of encouragement for Eli, I have been deeply disappointed with Khalid's (political) over-caution about rallying to Eli's defence when basic decency had demanded his prompt, unreserved and 'loyal' support. […]
… Khalid Ibrahim, asked if Wong would be asked for her resignation, said the state government would look into all aspects of the incident before making a decision on the matter.
“Let the police report go through (it) and then we will have our own discussion on the issue,” said Khalid.
“We are open to all possibilities but given the situation it is best to give the victim the right of hearing and we have to listen to her explanation.”
Dei Khalid Ibrahim, listen carefully - a good leader always stands by his troops when any one of them is in strife (and who hasn’t committed any wrong). It’s time you have a bit of backbone and come out bravely to support her. If she is the victim as you said, then WTF are you equivocating about?
She must and should be protected and supported.
And WTF do you mean by “We are open to all possibilities ..."
Are you opening the door for her possible dismissal from the Exco?
Then (2009) I thought Khalid Ibrahim was uncomfortable with having Eli on his team (after the nasty release of her photos on the web) when there was also a number of Pak Hajis from PAS, and thus, wanted to conveniently get rid of her.
Well, I suppose that's one way of solving problems - the Mafia were more drastic, making the people they wanted to disappear wear 'concrete shoes' wakakaka.
Now, with the revelation here, we laypeople begin to realize that there was another possibility in the attempted political assassination of Eli Wong, namely an inside job, similar to the political sabotage of Zaid Ibrahim during the Hulu Selangor by-election.
I used the word ‘laypeople’ because it seems those high up in the DAP, PAS or PKR hierarchy knew about that PKR internal backstabbing.
The exposé asked: Who did you guys think set Eli Wong up?
We’re then informed it’s the same person who sabo Zaid wakakaka.
Maybe that explains why Eli had initially wanted to quit politics following that cowardly act victimizing her. Could you blame her when the enemy was within her camp? Bloody creepy!
Just imagine her being devastated by the treachery, more so when her esteemed leader Khalid Ibrahim was also frightened into near silence (hence his initial prevarications following public knowledge of the scandal).
Just as well Eli Wong didn’t leave or she would have been labeled as a traitor/BN mole and grouped together with Nallakaruppan, Gobala, Jonson Chong, Zaid, Jenapala, Johari Jasin, Abdul Rahman (PKR membership No 3 and now in PAS), and a host of others.
