Conservative MP Derek Sloan received a donation from a white supremacist and his own party is now trying to kick him out because of it.
He tweeted in the evening on January 18 that he only learned about the donation from Paul Fromm, who is known for being a white supremacist and neo-nazi, that day.

He said that $131 was given to his campaign, which he stated received more than $1,300,000 in total from over 13,000 donations.
"At no time was I ever aware of this donation," Sloan said.
He said that the name "Paul Fromm" was not known to his team but now he's asked for the donation to be returned.
Then Sloan tried to turn it around on the party and tweeted that his "own investigation" found they took a 10% cut of the donation he got from Fromm.
