Conservative Party strikes 1,351 names off membership list after investigation

The Conservative Party of Canada has removed 1,351 names from its membership list after discovering they were purchased anonymously and inappropriately.

The announcement from the party comes a day after reality TV star and Tory leadership candidate Kevin O’Leary alleged “widespread vote rigging” in the race to replace Stephen Harper as the next permanent leader of the Conservative Party.

This arrived in my inbox this week, evidently widely circulated, it details how the Bernier team aka the Patrick Brown team allegedly employs pre-paid credit cards to generate “grass-roots’ support within ethnic communities. (Open the jpg in a new window for a readable version)

    Imagine my shock…Liberal tactics in a Conservative race.

    And, gosh, poison pen letters as well.

    Looks like Maxime actually wants to win this thing and the red tories are freaking out.

    I do not see how anyone can purchase a membership anonymously. I have to provide my name, address and telephone number and if using a credit card must provide the name on the card, the number and expiry date of said card. Perhaps I am just too naive and not up on how to fraud a membership.

    Who cares? By the time conservatives win another election (if ever) we’ll all either be speaking arabic or have had our heads lopped off. Time to nuke ottawa and start fresh.

    I have too wonder they traced 1351 bogus memberships to a couple of IP addresses in one day? Seems fishy. Did the old boys network know about it all along and only do something when their participation was about to be exposed? If they did only just figure out all of this they should be giving lessons on investigation to law enforcement.

    This is how the disgusting CUCK – Patrick Brown – got elected. 1,000’s of East Indians signed up – many I bet are not even Canadian citizens. Basically our democracy has been hijacked by foreigners who do not share our values. If you follow Patrick Brown twitter it is filled with him attending east Indian events – temples. He even spoke at the “Reviving the Islamic Spirit” conference in Toronto. The “conservatives” are no different from the Liberals.

  • Jim ….

    Why haven’t the candidates responsible been expelled from the leadership race?

    Wasn’t there some material of liberals clearly orchestrating subversion of the conservative party?
