After being disqualified from the Conservative Party leadership race over allegations his campaign violated election financing rules, Patrick Brown is claiming political corruption.
“We regret having to take these steps but we have an obligation to ensure that both our Party’s Rules and federal law are respected by all candidates and campaign teams. None of these problems has any impact on the integrity of the vote itself,” the statement said.
The campaign of Pierre Poilievre responded to Wednesday’s news by saying it’s “latest chapter in a career defined by numerous scandals.”
“We don’t even know what the allegation is. It’s an anonymous allegation being made. How do you respond to a phantom allegation? We’ve asked for information the party wouldn’t give,” he said.
