Greg Russell discusses the word ‘witch hunt’did someone say witch hunt

Shameless Carmichael under pressure to reject money from ‘witch-hunt’ crowdfunder SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2015 – 12:33 AM EXCLUSIVE BY GREG RUSSELL  3 COMMENTS PRESSURE was mounting last night for disgraced MP Alistair Carmichael to refuse to accept money from a crowdfunding website – because the cash was raised to stop an alleged “SNP witch hunt”. Three out of the four people attempting to have the shameless MP’s election result overturned are not SNP members. Sheila Ritchie, a fellow lawyer and friend of the Liberal Democrat’s only MP in Scotland, set up the web page “Help Alistair and stop the SNP”, on which she wrote: “Please donate what you can and help stop the SNP witch hunt. This is an attack, plain and simple.” However, SNP MP Peter Grant told The National: “A witch hunt means you gang up on an innocent person on completely false charges that are physically impossible to have happened in the first place in order to burn them to death. “We have a case here where he has admitted that he broke the Ministerial Code and he would have had to resign as a minister if the electorate hadn’t kicked him out first. He has made statements about his involvement in a leak that turned out to be untrue and that he should have known was untrue. “That again raises the question of potential very serious misconduct for any public figure.”
