    British MP Jacqui Smith had listed on her expenses claim two pornographic movies. Her husband claimed they were his but that doesn't change the fact that they were there.

    The issue basically is why are we (the pplz) paying for politicians to have a wank?

    There was also a bigger issue exposed in her expenses whereby she is claiming expenses (rent) for her family home while she actually (apparently) shares a flat with her sister.

    Here is a blog with a slant but gives you the brief overview:

    Wonko’s World Blog Archive Jacqui Smith puts porn on expenses

    Makes you wonder how many other MP's are claiming untruthful expenses. I also wonder if this has only come out because Jacqui has been having a hard time in politics recently and this is just another nail in the coffin.

    Her husband is also on her expenses as an assistant to her (hence the submission for the porn movies)
