Moderate Party Leader Files Complaint with Police

Sweden’s liberal-conservative Moderate party Fredrik Reinfeldt has filed a police complaint against a Social Democrat party staffer who carried out an e-mail smear campaign.

The poll analyst has resigned and apologized for sending out numerous e-mails to journalists with false accusations against the Moderate Party leader, purporting to be from members of the public.

A party spokesman says the complaint is directed against the activity and not an individual or the Social Democrat party.
