Ontario Liberal leadership candidate Harinder Takhar is confirming that he called police last week over a bogus interview.
According to Mississauga.com, Takhar was fooled by someone purporting to be Toronto Star reporter Martin Regg Cohn:
"In an interview this morning, Takhar confirmed he did call in police after someone called his campaign office and asked a number of questions in a 35-minute telephone call about how many party members he had signed, who he was approaching for signatures and what ridings he was concentrating on in his run to become the new leader of the Ontario Liberals.
After Cohn denied making the call, Takhar said, police were called in, "because we were concerned about our safety.
"We wanted to know who was approaching us because, to us, it was very sensitive information," Takhar said."
Was it a prank or a nefarious act by another leadership camp?
