Labour's Phil Woolas has been found guilty of election law:

The former immigration minister broke electoral law with what had been described as a "toxic" dirty tricks campaign against the Liberal Democrat candidate Elywn Watkins. His election win in May has now been declared void.

Mr Woolas, who won May's general election with a majority of just 103 votes, is the first MP for 99 years to face a successful challenge to his election victory on the basis of publishing false statements about an opponent.

On 5th November as well, how apt. One down...
