Election watch: Something hit the fan

A major political scandal might be spreading in Sweden right now. The Swedish Social Democratic Party filed a report with the police tonight. The reason is that the party’s internal communication platform has been infiltrated at the highest level, possibly by an individual or individuals with ties to the Liberal party. This means that – possibly – individuals in the Liberal Party have perfect information about some of the most important details of the Social Democratic campaign.

I was at the press conference, held at midnight at the Social Democratic Party HQ, and I just feel very sad. Whatever happens now, I don’t think will be good for Swedish politics or this election campaign or the general view of politics in this country. It is impossible to say how this will unfold, so let’s start by keep on talking politics and await the investigation by the police.

[Dagens Industri broke the story, read more at and in all the tabloids etc etc].
