Harper and Co. accused of f*cking with the last election

Harper and Co. acting in a dishonest way?

No! Knock me over with a feather...

More candidates are coming forward with reports of calls that tried to send voters to the wrong polling stations last election day.

The House of Commons returns Monday from a week-long break as the furor grows over harassing and fraudulent calls on May 2, 2011.

Liberal and NDP campaigns in 36 ridings say they were hit with the calls. One Conservative, MP Dean Del Mastro, said Saturday that his supporters also got calls.

Former Liberal MP Anthony Rota, who lost his bid for a fourth term in Nipissing-Timiskaming, Ont., by 18 votes, says the voter suppression tactics could have cost him the election.

"What I was hearing was, 'Elections Canada told us to go to the wrong poll.' Or they were sending them across town to vote in another location," he told CBC's Julie Van Dusen.

Best bullshit:

Defence Minister Peter MacKay pointed to Sona's resignation and told CBC News that the party doesn't need to investigate any further.

"I think they've identified the individual that was involved in this, and this is certainly not something our party condones," he said.

Translation: Ignore the Man behind the curtain...
