Reporter has sources saying 29 PC candidates paid over $20,000 each ($600k or so) for a “specific method” that paid international students $200 “per trip” to vote in a PC nomination using the identity of someone on the stolen 407 list.

This is the big question. There have been rumours of this for months and months. I heard whispers in green rooms last fall. Another big question: did the Ford for leader campaign use this specific method?

This story has everything, starting with it being a perfect cautionary tale about the perils of privatization.

Or maybe it was a farsighted electoral strategy.

probably the incumbents didn't need to. And did these 60,000 names just get loaded in the PC membership database? Did they vote in the PC leadership?

the specific method scandal might get more specific in upcoming days. Kinda funny 407 just becomes aware of this this data breach now. And, of course, they have a duty to go public....launching the whole story into the public realm...
