Gene Kerrigan: First it's fraud, now it's pained whining
This Michael Lowry nonsense is downright embarrassing. We all know the score -- Lowry is a morally compromised man, with a history of dishonesty. However, Fine Gael can't be sure it won't need him at some point in the future, to make up the numbers. And he rakes in 14,000 votes in Tipperary. And that's 14,000 second preferences that Fine Gael would like to get its hands on.
