Horwath Can't Hide NDP's Close Ties to Cornerstone

TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - While refusing to answer questions about the whereabouts of $100,425 of taxpayer money granted to the NDP's corporate entity - the Ontario Cornerstone Leadership Corporation - Horwath denied any links to the corporation:

"It has nothing to do with me... the corporation is a separate entity... It's an independent organization..."
(Andrea Horwath, TorontoSun.com, September 27, 2011)

Really Andrea?  Former NDP Leader Howard Hampton was clear about Cornerstone's central role financing NDP election campaigns:

"Welcome to the Cornerstone Campaign - a new initiative to purchase a permanent Ontario NDP headquarters, fund our pre-election activities and finance the 2007 election."
(Howard Hampton, NDPcornerstone.ca)

And all eight members of the Ontario Cornerstone Leadership Corporation Board of Directors are close associates of Andrea Horwath:

1. Sandra Clifford Cornerstone President and NDP President
2. Darlene Lawson NDP Provincial Secretary and Andrea Horwath's 2009 Leadership Campaign Chair
3. Barb Dolan NDP Vice President
4. Susan Barclay NDP Vice President
5. Mike Seaward    NDP Vice President
6. Diane O'Reggio 2007 NDP Campaign Co-Chair and former NDP Provincial Secretary
7. Doris Middleton  Current NDP candidate in Simcoe-North and Former NDP Vice President
8. Andrew McNeil      Former NDP Treasurer

Any doubt?  Sandra Clifford, NDP President and Cornerstone President, is travelling with Horwath this election campaign: (see photo)
