Why do you think political operatives love to leak a scandal just before there's an election, when there's not enough time to set the story straight, if straight it can be set?

So the fact the dual investigations into allegations of vote fraud in the 2017 United Conservative Party leadership race won by Jason Kenney, one by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the other by the Office of the Election Commissioner, continue to turn over new rocks, must be troubling indeed to the Alberta premier's strategic brain trust.

In a way, it's even worse for them that it's happening at the start of the UCP's mandate, when no sneaky political opponent with some fake news up his sleeve would go to the trouble of spreading a false story. Why bother? There's far too much time for the victim of the tale to prove his innocence.
