Cllr Malcolm — in his early 40s — was perhaps the most persistent target of the Mr Monkey blogger who introduced himself on June 22, 2008, promising to provide a ‘unique glimpse of the world I inhabit. A world of intrigue, secrets, cunning, deceit, scheming treachery, debauchery, power struggles’.
The most serious accusation he levelled against Iain Malcolm is highlighted in the papers filed at the court in California. The following claim on the Mr Monkey blog has been categorically dismissed as a ‘false and defamatory statement’ by the people it targets:
‘Mr Monkey has been approached by a woman who claims to have an interesting story about councillor Iain Malcolm and some postal ballot papers. She claims that both she and her late husband witnessed Cllr Malcolm tampering with (postal) ballot papers at their house …’
The ballot papers were collected, it is alleged, on behalf of elderly residents in sheltered accommodation and residential homes during the May 2000 local elections. The couple who supposedly witnessed the ‘tampering’ were members of the local Labour party.
and if it does turn out that the accusations of ballot paper tampering or vote rigging is true, then I expect the corrupt politician should do a nice stretch of jail time
So once again we find those in power, abusing their status and then punishing those who speak out about them
