Quote:
Michael Ignatieff’s Liberal leadership campaign has been penalized $1,000 for making "unsubstantiated, inflammatory" allegations against rival Bob Rae's campaign in British Columbia.

A Liberal party appeal committee ruling said the Ignatieff campaign’s publicity of unproven allegations had hurt a number of individuals, leadership campaigns and the party.


You call that a fine? It only costs $1000 to slander your opponent?

It seems that the cost is higher though as the fine is the news, rather than the allegation.

... which leads to another interesting question... why is the fine bigger news than the allegation?

I think back to when President Johnson wanted to accuse his opponent of having sex with Animals, just to hear them deny it.

For only a grand, maybe Volpe should try it

Excellent point Stephen... could this be another case of leftist media focusing on the wrong part of the story? I definitely think it is interesting to see that there was little mention of the accusations(I remember seeing a tiny article in the newspaper a while back i think), and now it is a big story?
