Greens say fundraising error is less than $10K but Murray camp is not so sure
The Green Party of Canada says the amount of money accidentally deposited with the party rather than Glen Murray's leadership campaign adds up to less than $10,000.
Murray says he is not yet convinced the damage stops there but credits the party with doing what it can to fix the problem.
He says the damage to his campaign has been done, preventing his team from doing some planned work because it didn't think it had the money.
The party says in a statement today it has forwarded $9,630 from 35 donors to Murray's campaign, and added under 10 people to the membership list whose memberships weren't properly approved.
The party says the donations were ``incorrectly processed'' but the situation has now been rectified.
Murray says media coverage of the problem has led to many phone calls from supporters who say they are concerned their donation didn't go through, or didn't get a ballot to vote in the leadership race.
