Tories rake in more cash than rivals Add to ...

Three months of bad headlines apparently didn't drive donors away from the governing Conservatives.

Elections Canada says the Tories raised $4.1-million in the second quarter of the year - up from $4-million in the first quarter.

The Conservative donations came in despite negative ink over the Rahim Jaffer-Helena Guergis saga, the Afghan detainee affair and ballooning budgets for the G8 and G20 summits.

The Liberals raised almost $1.7-million in the second quarter after collecting nearly $1.6-million in the previous three months.

The NDP raised less money this quarter than last, dropping to $747,136 from $900,198.

The Bloc Québécois also had trouble with donations, raising $80,243 in the second quarter compared to $123,069 in the first.
