Pundit Calls Andrea Horwath A 'Whore' On AM640's John Oakley Show

CP

AM640 pundit Lou Schizas might be in hot water after calling Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath a 'whore' on the John Oakley show on Wednesday morning.

The bastard.logic blog has a rough transcript of the comments:

Schizas: Just to get back to our previous quick quotes on Andrea Horwath. I think whore is the operative syllable there.

Oakley: Well, well let’s not take it that far

Schizas: What do you mean? She was bought.

Oakley: (in agreement) Alright, bought and paid for. Alright, it’s pejorative

Schizas: Alright, Sorry, I’ll take the hit.

Oakley: That’s alright.

Schizas: I’ll take the hit.

Schizas is an equities analyst and "business expert" for the John Oakley show. His "Happy Capitalism" segment is syndicated on a number of radio stations.

A number of left-leaning activists angrily took to Twitter and called out the AM640 host on his comments.

SO MUCH WRONG with this. RT @UnionSt: True story: AM640's *business analyst* Lou Schizas called Andrea Horwath a whore on @am640oakley.

Horwath, the leader of Ontario's NDP, propped up the province's Liberal government and avoided another election by helping pass the recent budget.

The Liberals are taking fire over the cancelled gas plants scandal.
