George Murphy, NDP candidate for St. John’s East, says a fundraising letter sent out prior to the issuing of the election writ was done by accident and is asking his supporters to ignore it. Candidates are forbidden by law to raise money until the election writ is officially issued, which isn’t expected to happen until next Monday. The chief electoral office has also received a copy of Murphy’s letter and a spokesperson says Murphy will be asked to repay any money raised.
