OTTAWA—The federal Conservative party said Thursday its membership list wasn't compromised in an incident involving fake financial pledges made to Jean Charest's leadership campaign.

The Charest campaign discovered multiple pledges all linked to an IP address originating in Ukraine after a long-time Conservative party member raised concerns.

Strategist Melanie Paradis said she received an email from Charest's campaign thanking her for pledging $120, even though she says she hadn't committed the money and is staying neutral in the race.
