The director of fundraising for the federal Conservatives has taken over as acting director of the party as it continues to grapple with the fallout from the resignation of leader Andrew Scheer.

Jaime Girard was chosen late last week to replace Dustin Van Vugt, who left his job as executive director earlier this month over questions about party funds used for Scheer's personal expenses.

Van Vugt's departure came on the heels of Scheer declaring he'll resign as leader as soon as a new one is chosen, a vote that will take place in 2020.
