Sabrina Maddeaux suspends Conservative nomination bid citing “corrupted process”

By Clayton DeMaine, True North Wire

Sabrina Maddeaux dropped out of the Conservative party nomination contest for the federal Aurora—Oak Ridges—Richmond Hill riding after what she said was a “corrupted election process” and “potentially illegal actions taken by another campaign.”

In a video and thread she posted on X, the long-time National Post columnist turned Conservative nomination contestant explained why she’s lost faith in the integrity of the nomination race.

“Despite raising concerns with the Conservative party nearly two weeks ago, despite submitting clear evidence of a corrupted process and potentially illegal actions taken by another campaign, nothing has been done,” Maddeaux said. “We asked again and again for action, but there’s been no sign that a promised internal investigation is actually underway. No next steps shared as we get closer and closer to a vote.”

Sadly, I no longer have faith in the election’s integrity.

Maddeaux accused “another campaign” of having access to an updated and full list of Conservative party members in the riding, giving them an advantage.

The Conservative Electoral District Association confirmed with True North that Costas Menegakis is the only approved candidate for the riding. However, they are still in the process of approving other candidates.
