Tucker Assaults Clerk at Electoral Office: Will he be charged?

On Tuesday morning at exactly 10.10 am, the electoral office in Vieux Fort was the scene of high-level drama which started when a young man walked in to procure his ID card. However, he could not get it because his birth certificate was invalid .

Apparently, the unsuspecting young man was acting under instructions from Bruce Tucker who arrived on the scene within  minutes after the event, steaming with anger and spitting venom. He did not ask any questions; but went straight for the jugular of the Clerk. 

Pointing his fingers straight into her face, Tucker bellowed: “So, you are the one doing this to my voters! I will deal with you!” He came so close to the poor clerk that the droplets his saliva sprinkled all over her face.

The victim was so frightened that she froze in fear and disbelief. After all, she was doing her duties with due diligence and within the confines of our electoral laws; but in came St. Lucia’s foreign Minister bullying her in full view of the public, and inflicting untold psychological injury to a conscientious public servant.

Why should a government minister ever do that a helpless public servant?

The good news for the victim is, according to the Criminal Code, Tucker can be charged for two offences, namely: assault and threat.

The Powerhouse will monitor the outcome of this case (or cases) and provide updates as they become available.


  1. She should have kicked him in his nuts.

  2. I hope he has no altercation at Cafeiere tonight as he intensifies his Campaign of Bribery. Ti canal like dirt all over Choiseul and there is more to come! Choiseul will have the distinct honour of being St. Lucia's Ti Canal Capital. No development; only Ti Canal!

  3. Tucker has a history of abusing people physically. Just like Fredrick choked-slam King, Tucker did similar damage to Cock-Show a couple months ago.

    She eh finish with him yet. She went to the police this afternoon. Pwesay coutay; pa pwesay parlay. The movie has just started. He interfered with the wrong person! Boy Lawyers like joke on dat case.

  5. She should also go to HTS and DBS: The UWP has long been batterers of women. I'm sure you remember the UWP treasurer who crippled the young woman right in his office.

  6. Such charisma at the beginning and now the reality shows. It is not just the obvious loss around the corner but the true colors of Rufus showing. The short-temper, uncontrollable anger, arrogance, power starving etc.... are all of the real Rufus. He has packaged himself to attract the weaker part of the richly educated Choiseul along with the notorious opportunists. He thrives on the notion that Choiseulians are backward, weak and unable to think for themselves. In his mind, an attractive ride, some rounds of drinks at some bars, being fair in complexion and speaking a few three-syllable English words in the rural areas represents the winning formula. Now that it is evident that Choiseul is made of powerful men and women that disassociate themselves with crooks and make sound decisions he is again buying empty pockets to scrape tracks (what he calls roads) and build poor excuses for gutters. Classic example at Des Tout Canawii where he made it even more difficult for low cars to traverse and people to walk after a little rain. Ma Aimancy doesn't forget that first time he came to contest in Choiseul saying clearly to her deceased husband that they would never get electricity at their little rum shop & hall or dwelling home. Thank God that Labour came in and put poles all over the place for free. I just want to remind my brothers and sisters of their children to come when they make decisions. Rufus has not given any consideration to enact legislation that will improve the lifestyles of our young ones coming behind. As a policy maker he sets no example so that a young man can take him as a role model. Instead he immerses himself in corrupt behavior and selfishly breaks down the moral structure in our society; then again, what can we expect from a criminal. The Lagan road that helping us everyday will be there long after Kenny and Lorne is gone but the Ti Canal Rufus making cannot even last his term in office.
