ACCUSATION OF ELECTORAL FRAUD Todays Leicester Mercury

by simongalton on 23 May, 2009

Dear all,

 I am writing to inform you of an article in todays Leicester Mercury that alleges that Senior Conservative County Councillors have possibly engaged in electoral fraud and have been reported to the police. The piece quotes the Liberal Democrats, but i must emphasise that these are allegations only.

What i would say is that at the current time, when the people are feeling betrayed by their MP’s over expenses and the Government over empty promises – the possibility of senior local Politicians engaging in something like electoral fraud is troubling indeed and will need careful consideration before and after the election.

The article is available at: http://www.thisisleicestershire.co.uk/news/Police-probe-allegation-election-dirty-tricks/article-1017451-detail/article.html

I will update you with information as i get it.
