The ALP doesn't need any more headlines like this. The ALP is trying to shake off their corrupt image and having a member of their leadership slapped with two more charges doesn't help their cause and only reinforces their public image is a gang of crooks. If the ALP hopes to win power, they're going to have to convince Antiguans and Barbudans that their thieving days are behind them and that they are a New ALP. But, so long as the charges keep mounting, that case will be impossible to make.
Cutie says that the prosecutions are political, but, that is likely to ring hollow in the ears of voters who grow tired of the long list of charges that have been leveled against ALP members.
