It's easy to figure out whether that person is quitting the party or not by this sequence of events:
1. Deny that such thing exists.
2. Ominous rumours from third-party that this politician has personal problems.
3. Someone ex-from the party says that there will be one or two people from the party that will jump ship.
4. Sometime later on, the man who is about to quit nods in affirmation by releasing a press statement.
The latest trend, happens to Wangsa Maju MP Wee Choo Keong, a few days ago.
His departure was already predicted sometime back ago. Two weeks before the general election he once said that despite being a small size party in MDP, he was contesting on a PKR ticket. This means that he's not entirely bound by the PKR laws, just I see that not many people know what is really MDP apart from the big three of Pakatan Rakyat.
What was written in the press statement is only part of the entire picture of why he decides to quit. There were whispers around that claim that Wee has an affair with two mistresses, sired an illegitimate child and this has found the attention of UMNO. Indeed UMNO has caught him by the balls and threatened to expose the scandal.
Could this quote from Pete alludes and fills the other half of the puzzle?
“Wee Choo Keong’s problem is more complicating. It involves two mistresses and one who has just given birth and Umno has threatened to expose this scandal. He also has this RM35 million legal problem with Ambank and if this can be settled ‘out of court’ then Wee will certainly become another ‘independent’ Member of Parliament.”
A friend of mine did mention of possibility of Wee's problems and jackpot....he got it right. That was way past few months prior to yesterday that is.
It's predicatble really.
