Disgraced Independent MP Dean Del Mastro abruptly resigned his House of Commons seat, less than a week after a judge found the former Conservative member guilty on three counts of violating the Canada Elections Act. The former parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper became emotional as he said he didn't want to be a distraction or require his fellow MPs to vote on his fate. (Del Mastro was convicted of exceeding spending limits during the 2008 election, failing to report a personal contribution of 21-thousand dollars to his own campaign and knowingly submitting a falsified document.)
