Dinning stewed?

Last Friday, the Edmonton Sun reported that the Alberta Liberals have accused Jim Dinning of interfering with and Alberta Securities Commission investigation.

Let's take a look at the implications of this:

1. If these allegations are true, Dinning may be denied the coveted post of leader of the Alberta PCs.
2. Should Dinning gain the post, opposition leaders (especially Alliance leader Paul Hinman) may play up the allegations - whether or not any truth is found behind them), and deny the PCs their long-held place at the top of Alberta politics.

Shocking times, to be sure. The fact that Dinning couldn't be reached for comment is irksome, but hopefully the facts will come out before long.
