History of leadership "races"

I'd rather talk about cutting minimum wages
A representative for Jason Kenney, when questioned about putting up a dummy candidate to undermine a rival in the contest for leadership of Alberta's United Conservative Party, said everything the Kenney team did was:
perfectly normal in a preferential ballot election and was within the rules of the 2017 UCP Leadership Election.
He's probably right. As always in Canadian political party leadership races, federal and provincial, the real scandal is what's legal. After all, when the point of the contest is that the side which buys the most votes wins, corruption is pretty much baked in.
