Alberta’s election commissioner has fined another person in connection with Jeff Callaway’s 2017 campaign for the leadership of the United Conservative Party.

Jeffrey Park has been fined 10,500 dollars for donating cash to the campaign that wasn’t his.

The fines were levied after allegations that Jason Kenney and Calloway teamed up during the U-C-P leadership race to discredit former Wildrose Party leader Brian Jean.

A total of 46,000 dollars in fines has now been handed out by the election commissioner in connection with the Callaway leadership campaign.
