Deary me, it's a rough time for former FF public representatives! First of all, there was the Cork hoodlum, then Mister Fictional Expenses. Have I missed anyone?

Anyway, now there's this.

Where did it all for wrong for FF? It used to have people forming an orderly line to throw money at it, but now it has been reduced to demanding it, with menaces.

I wonder whether for old time's sake he was demanding that money be given in an envelope. And handed over in a pub car park.

Fianna Fáil ex-Senator arrested charged with an offence of demanding money with menaces under section 17 of the Criminal Justice Public Order Act?

Is the crook trying to show the troika how money collection works the Fianna Fáil way?

This is out in the public domain:

"A former Fianna Fáil senator has been arrested by gardaí, charged with an offence of demanding money with menaces.
The former senator was arrested at his home in the northeast and is due in court this morning."

FF in the Northeast obviously have abandoned the Sean Gallagher approach to political donations.
