A Second Front Opens Up On Huhne

Another tape has surfaced that could hang Huhne. Two former LibDem councillors from his Eastleigh constituency have recorded Huhne’s agent apparently admitting they overspent above the legal election limits at the last election by £10,000. The Sunlight Centre was working on Huhne’s election expenses last summer, but hit a brick wall when Huhne, and his agent, refused to cooperate with any investigation. Last July Guido wrote:

…there are some serious questions involving interesting invoicing practices, possibly designed to hide the true cost of printing. You can read some of the background to the Sunlight Centre’s investigation here, but essentially the invoices for Huhne’s leaflets are from the “Itchen Valley Printing Society”, who mysteriously share his constituency office. The material produced, however, was in reality printed by Park Communications Limited. Park is an interesting organisation that is very, very close to the Liberal Democrats – their chief exec hosts events with the head of the LibDem campaigns department.

Huhne’s tight re-election spending was dodgy, as was the deafening silence as soon as it was probed. The Sunlight Centre never got a reply to this letter to Anne Winstanley, Huhne’s agent, which is no surprise now, given she was apparently going round telling people they overspent, and this letter had worked out how:

Finally now the Electoral Commission is investigating. Full background for Sunday paper Huhnters can be found here.
