BC's solicitor general resigned amid an RCMP investigation into campaign finance laws. The RCMP's commercial crimes unit looked into Kash Heed's campaign for the May, 2009 election, and a special prosecutor was appointed to the case. Heed insisted he had nothing to do with the allegations. (Heed was reinstated after he was cleared by special prosecutor Terrence Robertson. But soon after Heed was welcomed back to cabinet, Robertson revealed his law firm had donated money to Heed's campaign. Robertson stepped aside to make room for a new special prosecutor, and Heed once again resigned from cabinet on May 5th.)
