Caroline Righton accused of smearing Lib Dem with fake message

Matt Davies has the story about how Tory candidate Caroline Righton looks to have tried to smear her Lib Dem opponent in St Austell & Newquay, Stephen Gilbert, by faking a message.

Although the story has been taken up by quite a few other bloggers (including Andrew Reeves, Nich Starling and Lib Dem Voice), I’ve yet to see anyone try to defend or excuse her behaviour – or indeed any Tory commenter post a comment on any of these stories at all even those some of the blogs running the story regularly attract comments from supporters or members of the Conservative Party.

It’s as if collectively her Conservative Party colleagues wish the story just didn’t exist – but it does. So why the silence?
