Laws Are For The Little People.

August 2007:
Harriet Harman, the Labour Party's chairman, has secretly discussed with senior colleagues ways of stopping Lord Ashcroft from using his private wealth to win more seats for the Tories by using a loophole in the Political Parties , Elections and Referendums Act 2000
November 2007:
Harriet Harman, Labour's deputy leader and party chairwoman, was clinging to the support of Downing Street last night after it emerged that her deputy leadership campaign took money from a woman who had acted six times as an unlawful conduit for funds secretly given to Labour by a businessman.
So she was plotting to prevent Labour's opponents spending money raised legally at the same time that she was in receipt of money raised illegally. When John Prescott stood down I really didn't think that it was possible to find someone who wouldn't be both more intelligent and less sleazy, to find someone who fails on both counts is almost impressive.
