Ottawa: Peterborough MP Dean Del Mastro, who was found guilty last week on three counts of violating the Canada Elections Act, says he is resigning his seat in the House of Commons.
Del Mastro, a former parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, was convicted of exceeding spending limits during the 2008 election, failing to report a personal contribution of $21,000 to his own campaign and knowingly submitting a falsified document.
