The RoboCon Scandal and the Con War Room

Well I suppose it had to happen eh? Sooner or later the investigation into the RoboCon scandal had to lead all the way to the Con War Room.

Elections Canada investigators on the trail of the "Pierre Poutine" suspect in the robocalls case have been asking questions about the actions of staff at Conservative party headquarters in Ottawa.

And start to look more and more like Canada's Watergate. 

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.

Uh oh. Do you think they will claim it was just an accident?

Oh I hope so.

What did Richard Nixon say about the scandal that brought him down?

Answer: "It's not the crime that gets you, it's the cover-up."

Golly. I always knew that such a vast conspiracy to steal an election could not have been the work of a rogue operative.

But who knew that history could repeat itself?

They are the only party that was capable of this kind of operation. When you build such an enormous data collection it's only a matter of time before someone will use it for wrongful purposes.

I wish I could say I was wrong.

I hope that this government is held to account before they completely dismantle the country.
