The United Conservative Party is facing another obstacle in the tumultuous lead-up to its announcement of the leadership review vote on May 18.

A letter obtained by CBC News shows Elections Alberta is investigating allegations made about bulk UCP membership purchases.

The statement adds that membership purchases are accepted in three ways: with someone paying on a personal credit card for themselves or family, by cheque, or by cash if the person signs a membership application confirming their identity. It is not known if the complaint from the Jean campaign is what spurred the investigation by Elections Alberta., which was passed in December.

Kenny Rogers' roasters

Want to see what PP would be like as PM? Just look to Kenney! I’d expect nothing but this level of nonsense.

Bulk voting blocks!

Corrupt Kenney is always up to no good.

So no confirmation that an investigation is occurring?

Cheating again?

Gee, I wonder if the guys who made it legal to purchase party memberships in another person's name without their consent would ever do such a thing? 😉

MerlinofCanada Her we go……

MerlinofCanada My only question….. was it Kenney or was it Jean…?

Not surprising!!

Can't imagine how that could happen.

Unsurprisingly and characteristically jkenney

So.....Kenney cheated..again.

Ultra conservative nazis

...from the discount bin.

They’re cooking the books? Preposterous. Not with their track record.

It's hard to tell whether the UCP are unable to read rules, or if they are only able to win if they ignore the rules. Whatever is the case, it's not the way honest elections are supposed to take place.

I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!

I’m sure Kenny would make a great Republican Trump would be proud to have with his boys !

Canada is rife with election fraud. Why don't you ask Trudeau ...

Right on time a cbc article attacking a critic of Trudeau

Wake up members dont allow this bully to undo your good work

Oh my! Shenanigansin Alberta Conservative politics, tell me it’s not so! Just shocked. Where is the Kamikaze candidate when you need him

Hey HarrisonFleming UniteAlberta brockwharrison. You thought you were gonna get away with it eh?

This just happened in British Columbia where a right wing candidate managed to find campaign contributions from people who didn't know they had contributed - and from those who lived at addresses that didn't exist. Time for our elections officials to take off the gloves.

Nothing more than a slap on the wrist will be the result Albertans can forget about jkenney and his Co going to jail He himself made enough moves on RCMP and election commissioner that he will not face ANY serious repercussions He learnt from third world despots ableg abpoli
