Robocall probe spreads to Conservative HQ: Source

Elections Canada investigators have spread their robocall probe to Conservative Party headquarters, according to a story by Glen McGregor and Stephen Maher, the reporters who first broke news of the case.

From the Ottawa Citizen:

Nearly a year after the investigation began, the agency is trying to determine why database records provided by the party appear to be missing entries that could help identify who downloaded the phone numbers used to make fraudulent robocalls, according to a source familiar with the probe.

 Investigators also are inquiring about a phone call from Conservative headquarters, made the day before the election, to RackNine, the Edmonton voice-broadcasting company whose servers were used to send out the robocalls.

The party has consistently denied playing a part in the alleged robocall scheme, which is said to have involved fraudulent calls to non-Conservative supporters during last year’s federal election.

  1. So it looks like somebody accessed the CIMS database acess records and managed to wipe out entries in the logs.

    Remember that is was from these logs that a couple of CPC interns got into trouble for looking up details about Harper. Highly unlikely then that these are going to be unprotected or have access given to just anyone.

    I think that while this does not identify who exactly in the party has been doing this, it points out that this is *not* just some rogue staffer. There’s higher-ups who knew and who’ve been taking steps to cover their tracks.

  2. Future quote?:  “I can say categorically that no one in the Conservative War Room, no member of this government, presently employed, was involved in this very bizarre incident.”

  3. Given the various access levels used to secure the database, it seems extremely unlikely that removing entries would be set at a low level access point.

    Generally, only administrators have that kind of access to keep people from messing everything up.

    It’s highly suspect as well that the managers of that database wouldn’t know things had been removed.

    Perhaps they were hoping Elections Canada wouldn’t notice or be able to tell?

    How much you want to bet that this is the issue that creeps up on the party and defeats it?

    You know, it took a few years before adscam caught up with the Liberals, and this seems similar in nature.

  4. I was right he(Mr. Harper) would do anything to be in power.

  5. “Robocall probe spreads to Conservative Headquarters”. Now why would any of us be surprised by this bit of news? Elections Canada just has to follow that treasonous stench straight to Stephen Harper’s backside. Stephen Harper will be our next Richard Nixon.

  6. The dynamic dipshits Maher and MacGregor strike again… zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
