Corruption in party leadership processes, #1,000,000

Regarding the Conservative party leadership "race" in Ontario, let me just note that the party reports having 190,000 members, but only 74,000 of them seem to have had valid mailing addresses, and only 64,000 or so voted.  (And the "winner" trailed in both the popular vote and the vote-by-constituency.) 

How many of the rest of the 190,000 "members," one wonders, were essentially avatars, memberships that had been created by the party leadership but had not yet been assigned to real people when the leadership contest suddenly emerged?  It doesn't seem to matter; no one is investigating it.
