"RCMP are conducting a raid on Conservative party headquarters in Ottawa on Tuesday in connection with an investigation into spending on election advertising.
The Mounties, who have a search warrant, say they are assisting Elections Canada.
Conservative party spokesman Ryan Sparrow had no comment as he entered headquarters.
The issue involves party spending during the campaign for the 2006 parliamentary election.
The party gave $1.2 million to local candidates who hadn't reached their spending limits. That money was then returned to the party, which spent it on regional television and radio ads.
Elections Canada alleges that money drove the party over the $18.3-million spending limit for federal elections."
It's amazing how up to speed the Conservatives got in such a short period of time, it took the liberals a decade to become this overtly corrupt. The Conservative's on the other hand had both the Cadman affair and the In and Out scandal pre election win, Bloody overachievers!!!
Just imagine all the things they've done we don't know about yet? Shudder!!
You know I don't usually bother but I think I might just head over and gloat at some Conservative blogs on this one occassion:)Recommend this Post
