O'Toole campaign believes alleged hack came from MP's office, says it has received confession letter - 2020-06-22
Erin O'Toole's Conservative leadership campaign is alleging that someone in a Member of Parliament's office passed sensitive login information to rival Peter MacKay's campaign, giving his chief competitor access to virtually all high-level campaign activity, according to a letter sent to police and obtained by the National Post.
The O'Toole campaign believes at least 138 Zoom meetings in English were accessed and at least seven meetings in French. Some of the meetings were high-level strategy discussions among senior campaign figures.
The version of the letter obtained by the Post redacts the name of the person in the MP's office who is alleged to have taken the login credentials from the MP's email account. The O'Toole campaign has obtained a confession letter from the person, according to a senior campaign source.
