A public prosecutor is looking into violations of the rules in the the recall attempt against MP Ian Paisley. The petitioners missed the signature attempt by 444 signatures. They needed 7500. Two of the supporters of the recall effort are accused of forecasting of prediction the outcome or publishing a statement that they signed the petition. One posted on social media that they signed the petition, the other posted a video calling on people to sign.
Paisley was suspended and criticized after receiving unreported all-expense paid vacations to Sri Lanka.
