Your Caroline Righton reader

On Sunday Stephen blogged about the behaviour of Caroline Righton, the Conservative candidate for St Austell & Newquay, whose campaign is being accused of faking a message about her Liberal Democrat opponent, Stephen Gilbert, in a botched smear attempt.

The story has also been taken up on quite a few other Lib Dem blogs so, bearing in mind that our readers often ask for more links through to stories on other Lib Dem blogs, here is a selection of the most recent posts:

  • Matt Davies, who was quick out of the blocks with a comprehensive piece
  • Alex Folkes, who rightly highlights that even if Caroline Righton did not personally author the message in question her failure to apologise or explain certainly is her direct responsibility
  • Andrew Reeves, whose post has a comment containing the most curious piece of information that has come to light so far
  • Chris Lovell, who highlights the silence from Tories about the affair
  • Jeremy Rowe, he of the blog post with the scary photo
  • Nich Starling, in typically robust form, highlighting how Caroline Righton recently promised to fight a “positive and honest campaign”
  • and finally some chap called Mark

If I’ve missed any or a new one has appeared since I wrote this, do post up a comment with a link.
