NDP favours non-partisan hiring (sometimes) 
(en francais)

The scariest thing to the NDP is that Conservatives are actually hiring competent people. As Parliamentary Relations assistant to Veterans Affairs Minister Greg Thompson, Ms. Desjarlais is highly qualified for her position.

I guess Ms. Desjarlais didn't get the memo from NDP MP Judy Wasylycia-Leis on acceptable jobs for ex-NDP/Independent MPs.

Former New Democrat clashed with party, lost bid to sit as Independent in January


From Thursday's Globe and Mail

Though some New Democrat MPs say they will have no problem working with Ms. Desjarlais, others, such as caucus chairwoman Judy Wasylycia-Leis, are fuming.

"It was a shock to me and people in our party everywhere. . . . It's hard to understand how Bev could have gone from being an active New Democrat to actually supporting and upholding the Stephen Harper agenda. [It] is just mind-boggling and very disappointing," said Ms. Wasylycia-Leis, the member for Winnipeg North.

To be fair, not all NDP MPs expressed the same sentiments as Ms. Wasylycia-Leis, but it certainly serves as a good example that partisan politics runs deep no matter what party you belong to.
