Read lots more by Brandon Laraby who has a roundup of links, Curiosity Cat, and Sixth Estate. When the latest documents from court appear online, I’ll post them with the rest.
RoboCon got a little more interesting and solid today after Glen McGregor made a trip to the courthouse to do a little investigating, unbeknownst to me. I was prodding CBC to ask Maher about RoboCon.
Then Stephen Maher appeared on CTV to explain what Glen found Elections Canada learned in MARCH of this year.
CBC report on Prescott’s computer.
“Elections Canada investigator Al Mathews filed the statement on March 20 to support a request for a court order compelling Rogers to turn over subscriber information about the account that used that IP address on that day. The company complied with the order the following day.”
“RackNine records provided to Elections Canada showed that Prescott’s account had been accessed from a Rogers IP address in Guelph, 126.96.36.199″
On May 2, 2011 — election day — both clients “accessed Racknine within four minutes of each other,” using the same IP address, Mathews says in the court document.
“The IP address was registered with Rogers Cable, who said the billing information for the account goes from March 26 to May 5 of last year. The election was called on March 26, with the vote on May 2.”
Sounds like an election ISP account, possibly at the Guelph campaign office of the Conservatives (opposed to a residence of Prescott), as I’ve seen others suggest (but I haven’t seen the evidence that proves that, yet). ADDED: http://bit.ly/ISd9px Star says location of computer not confirmed yet.
Matthew McBain and Christopher Crawford said Michael Sona talked about “calling electors to tell them their poll location had changed” and “making a misleading poll moving call,” according to Matthews’ court filing.
Globe and Mail’s version of events.
The latest report confirms the accusation by LaRue of Prescott, made a month ago. Prescott has not been charged by Elections Canada, and the allegations have not been proven in court. Prescott has returned to Twitter the last two weeks, but hasn’t continued blogging at his Blogging Tory affiliated site “Christian Canadian Conservative”.
