Voters Have Hit Indiegogo With a Mission to Remove Alistair Carmichael From Parliament

Following his unethical actions during the recent elections, UK voters have taken to Indiegogo to raise 60,000 to remove Alistair Carmichael from his position as Orkney and Shetland’s Member of Parliament.

Alistair Carmichael 1According to The Guardian, Carmichael admitted he was responsible for an election leak intended to discredit the SNP leader, Nicola Sturgeon. Following a Cabinet Office inquiry, the Lib Dem former Scottish secretary stated he authorized his special adviser to release a memo about a private conversation in which Scotland’s first minister purportedly said she wanted David Cameron to remain as prime minister.

The day after the story was published in the Daily Telegraph in April, Carmichael denied having had any involvement in situation:

“I’ve told you the first I became aware of this, and this is already on the public record, was when I received a phone call on Friday afternoon from a journalist making me aware of it.”

Recently, Carmichael offered an explanation as to why his statement wasn’t a lie:

“What was true was that the first time I had seen that document in its detail, in its text, was when I saw it published in the pages of the Daily Telegraph. The proposal came to me by my staff, who said this is what was in this document, we think it should be put in the public domain, we believe it is in the public interest that it should be put out there that there’s something different being said in public compared to what is being said in private.”
