Dean Del Mastro found guilty (may lose seat)

Dean Del Mastro found guilty in election spending case

Former parliamentary secretary to Stephen Harper could lose seat

Oct 31, 2014

A judge has found Peterborough, Ont., MP Dean Del Mastro guilty of spending too much in the 2008 federal election and falsifying a document to cover it up.

Del Mastro now faces the prospect of losing his seat in the House of Commons and possibly being sentenced to up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
