Part 1 of #OilConVoid explained why the Conservatives cheated to raise so much money for their party to grab majority power, and Part 2 explained part of how they did it with corrupt Senators. In the last, third part, you’ll see a bit of when they went about using that ill-gotten money to defraud people and steal the 2011 general election.
–Dean Del Mastro is accused by Elections Canada of circumventing his campaign spending limit, and fraudulently accepting illegal donations then covering it up wit his campaign buddy. Dean’s cousin got raided for evidence.
-Multiple Conservatives in the Vaughn campaign quit and notified authorities of a second bank account used to pay for campaign expenses like a telephone town hall that was not recorded in the campaign filings with Elections Canada.
-Andrew Prescott who worked on the Guelph Conservatives campaign has reportedly obtained immunity from prosecution in exchange for information on those Elections Canada is seeking to charge with the localized election fraud in that campaign. The method in Guelph appeared to be implemented apart from most of the other fraudulent robocalls reported in 247 ridings.
This robocall scheme worked because it only had to fool 0.1 – ~3% of those called in key ridings to greatly influence the seat result. With the great delay in prosecuting In & Out election fraud, and no prosecution for the S-GI robocall fraud in 2008 which benefited the Conservative candidate Lunn, the Conservatives were emboldened to go for the big reward of a majority government through outright fraud nationwide.
