Two Axor executives say they were involved in illegally funding Marois campaign

Two engineering-consulting group executives have gone on the record, saying their names were used illegally to hide to source of political contributions made to Marois' leadership bid in 2007.

Jacques Grenier, the CEO of Axor, and Maurice Choquette, internal auditor, have told Le Soleil newspaper that though their names appear on Marois' 2007 donor list, the money did not really come from them.

According to Le Soleil, Grenier says he and his colleagues used a system of fake names to fund Marois' bid, though he says he never met with Marois' husband, Claude Blanchet.

Quebec Solidaire has produced calculations that says employees and directors at Axor contributed $25, 000 to Marois' campaign.

Radio-Canada released a story on Monday, where an anonymous engineering executive alleged he passed $25,000 to this campaign.

The Parti Quebecois leader says the story is likely an act of vengeance from someone involved in collusion who wants the Liberals to regain power.

    Even if it is vengeance or collusion, so what? Bottom line is that it's still illegal.

    ove him or hate him, Rene Levesque must be turning in his grave over the pathetic display put on by these clowns. Can you imagine them running a country?
    Its frighting, I would feel better being an American led by Sarah Palin then having these fools at the helm.

    Thank you PKP, without knowing it, you started a wave that saved Canada
