Conservative MP who grilled Mulcair over NDP’s satellite office spending had to repay House $326 on his own re-election campaign

Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth, who helped grill NDP Leader Tom Mulcair for nearly two hours Thursday at the House Affairs Committee over allegations the NDP used public money for partisan work at a Montreal office the party established for its flood of rookie MPs in 2011, had to repay the Commons for $326 worth of telephone and printing services he used for his own election campaign that year, Elections Canada records show.
