Update to Controversy for Cambridge Liberal Nomination

February 14th, 2008

I wrote about the local Liberal nomination a few days ago, and quoted extensively from a Cambridge Times article on the subject, including the following:

Zielstra [nominee Gord Zeilstra]… emphasized other candidates were also given membership signup forms without having to dish out $1 each for them.

Today, the following (excerpted) letter is in the Times from Zielestra’s opponent, Robert Konduros:

No free forms here

…I would like to set the record straight and make it clear that I never received any nomination forms from the association…

Also, readers should understand that the essence of the misconduct was not in failing to pay a dollar for each membership form which sounds petty, but that the candidate and the local riding association conspired to ensure his victory contrary to basic fairness and party rules…
