While South Carolina Governor Sanford was accused of using taxpayer money to fund his trips to Argentina to see his lover, MP David Tredennick received payments for several hundred dollars worth of astrology software and lessons.

“He said that after his studies, he was inclined to believe there was some truth in the astrology and the influence of the planets on the earth and said the payments had been approved in advance by the Commons’ Fees Office.”

Wouldn’t it be great if more politicians got into this kind of trouble!
