UKIP in the spotlight

UKIP could very well go into the General Election with at least five of their MEP's facing prosecution for fraud. Farage is one of those under investigation. Is this another reason why he suddenly decided to stand down as leader?

From the Times:

UKIP MEPs’ expenses probed

EU anti-fraud investigators are conducting an inquiry into the United Kingdom Independence party over its MEPs’ use of expense allowances. Olaf, the body that polices MEPs, has sent officers to the UK, who were last week interviewing potential witnesses.

The development comes in the same week that Tom Wise, a former UKIP MEP, was convicted of embezzling taxpayers’ money intended as his assistant’s salary while he was working for the party.
