Not cheating on an election means never having your reputation besmirched.

Calgary PoliticsDavid Aftergood, husband of former (and now possibly disgraced) alderman Margot Aftergood has been running through the courts trying to stop the provincial inspection into wrongdoing during last fall's ward 10 election. He's concerned that the inspection will ruin his reputation. I can see why, he's just been charged with two counts under the Local Authorities Election Act.

David, here's some advice from our 2005 catalogue of clues, if you break the law, you're reputation is going to be harmed. If your reputation is so important to you, perhaps you and your pals shouldn't have cheated on an election.

My concern on all this is that the people who ran Aftergood's campaign, also ran Hung Pham's campaign. Now there were no mail in ballots during the provincial election, but since identification need not be shown at the poll to prove who you are, and that the PC campaign manager's wife was the returning officer, given the charges, one has to wonder what shenanigans happened during that vote.

I'm beginning to think that Alberta needs its own Gomery Inquiry into the antics of the PC party during the last election.

Hung Pham's re-election is suspect after the Ward 10 fiasco in the Civic elections; and I wouldn't be surprised if there is a significant amount of rot lurking in the upper layers of the Alberta PC party, and those that it has embedded over the years in the senior bureaucracy.
