Fourteen Conservative MPs signed on with a well-connected Republican company during last year's election campaign, contrary to the party's claims, the Star has learned.

On its website, Front Porch Strategies, a "voter contact and constituency outreach" firm based in Columbus, Ohio, boasts: "In May's federal elections, Front Porch Strategies won all 14 of their races."

Among their clients was Peterborough MP Dean Del Mastro who, on Thursday, led the charge in the Commons over the voter dirty tricks scandal, accusing Liberals and notably Eglinton—Lawrence MP Joe Volpe of paying over $25,000 to a calling company with offices in North Dakota.
