Twenty people connected to David Del Mastro, Dean's cousin, or to his electrical business in Mississauga, are such political activists that they each gave Dean Del Mastro a thousand dollars in the 2008 election campaign:
He said it was reasonable to believe that his employees volunteered to each give $1,000 to a candidate running for election in a riding three hours away.And if you believe that, I've got this bridge I could sell you...
“Why wouldn’t they?” he asked.

Yep. And I'll bet you about ~33% of us (judging by current polls) are dumb enough to buy that bridge.

I trust Rev. Canada will get onto these donors...they get a tax deduction for $1000.00 but then get reimbursed for this $1000.00 so in fact, they never really made a donation. Then they got a $50.00 bonus for having done so. As one blogger said: Nixon had plumbers, the Cons. have electricians.

Must have been an electrifrying moment - bit of choir in the background - when the dollars started slithering down the legs of those employees, in unison perhaps, although "only 50 dollar bonus" might have occurred to some as an afterthought. Where's the video?
This is really encouraging news. I've always been terrified that some really intelligent fascist would arise to take away our freedoms. Looks as if we dodged that bullet once again. What a pack of effing clowns.
Conspiracy to commit a crime is a crime in itself. Let's hope Elections Canada uses the RCMP in cases where our elections laws appear to be broken, and third parties appear to have a hand in it. We really need to have a clean, transparent, and credible election process - it is one of major pillars of our democracy.
