(2007) New Labour Vote Rigging

Labour paid drug addicts to vote up to 25 times to rig a tightly fought election, a BBC investigation has alleged. Respect party representative Abdul Aziz claims that Labour spent £10,000 to gain a 666-vote majority and oust him from the ward of Aston in Birmingham. A community leader told Newsnight that he had been offered £20 for every postal vote he rigged and a drug addict claimed he was paid £5 for every vote he cast - netting himself £125. http://tinyurl.com/b3e5ob
