“Lenny” is a collection of recorded messages, designed to fool telemarketers into thinking they’re talking to a real person. Here’s what happened when Lenny got a call from a Conservative campaigner representing Pierre Poilievre.
As Alison@Creekside has reported: “The telemarketer calling here on behalf of the re-election campaign of Pierre Poilievre, champion of the Fair Elections Act, told ‘Lenny’ she was from ‘Campaign Support.’ Guelph-based “Campaign Support” made calls into Liberal MP Irwin Cotler’s Mont-Royal riding in the fall of 2011 suggesting that Cotler may be resigning so how’s about you support our Steve in a non-existent upcoming by-election?
“. . . Cotler was not of course considering resigning at the time and kicked up a stink about the dirty tricks telephone campaign in the HoC. House Speaker and $8198.79 Campaign Research client Andrew Scheer dismissed the campaign as “reprehensible” but not actionable.”
