Liberal hopeful sued by party members; accused of depleting funds

A Liberal riding association is suing one of its potential candidates, alleging he spent party money wooing support for his own campaign – the latest case of infighting in an Ontario riding where Conservatives already have their own heated battle.

The Liberal association in the newly created riding of Oakville North–Burlington filed the $260,000 lawsuit this month against two former party riding presidents in the region, spouses Rohit and Catherine Dhamija.
