RikiLeaks received this rather interesting email, seems Shaun Wright was being economical with the truth when responding to Don Buxton’s recent enquiries. Time for the truth from Shaun Wright!:
“Cllr Shaun Wright has missed the point and failed to disclose his funding declaration for his selection as Labour PCC. The deadline to submit declarations to the Electoral Commission had expired for the selection campaign some time ago. I understand he is now being investigated by the Electoral Commission in relation to this matter.
I think Cllr Wright has tried to hide the truth and confuse matters as his reply to Don is regarding his current election declarations which is a completely different unrelated matter and does not require disclosure until after 12.11.12.
The question Cllr Wright needs to answer, is he being investigated by the electoral Commission for his selection for PCC campaign YES or NO will suffice. What has he got to hide!!!!
If anyone cannot attend the hustings then you can submit your question for the candidate to answer by clicking on the below link- if enough people ask him the question re Electoral Commission investigation then he will need to answer it at the event.”
Rothpol is grateful to this public spirited citizen for bringing this to our attention.
