253. Cllr. Anthony Bays

Tory Party Councillor and former Mayor (Lambeth, London) Anthony Bays was convicted and jailed for 4 months in 2004 for Electoral fraud committed during a close-run council election in Guilford, Surrey. The court heard how Bays had bullied an 80-year-old woman into handing over her ballot paper and then altered her vote for the Lib-Dem candidate into a Tory vote. The Lib-Dems (not averse to a bit of ballot-rigging themselves on occasion) won the election anyway after a recount. http://tinyurl.com/53c7x5
