More Allegations of Election Misspending Hit Conservatives

Posted on July 24, 2012

KELLIGREWS, NL— Liberal Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics critic Scott Andrews made the following statement today on the mounting allegations against the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Peter Penashue:

“Another member of this Conservative government is denying allegations of violating election spending rules. An audit of Peter Penashue’s books from the last election shows massive overspending, as well as other serious irregularities that could call into question the legitimacy of Mr. Penashue’s 79-vote victory.

Similar allegations of crooked accounting are being levied against Stephen Harper’s right-hand man, Dean Del Mastro.

The prime minister has to ask himself, as he fights to maintain his government’s credibility, if it is now prudent for these members to step aside from his inner circle while they are under investigation.”
