Prime Minister Boris Johnson is apparently in deep trouble. According to the Electoral Commission, Boris Johnson is under investigation for alleged wrongdoing; misuse of funds, and failure to actually notify the commission of improperly raised funds. Much of the investigation surrounds Johnson ‘s decision to renovate his Downing Street flat, some of which, he allegedly used conservative donors and their donations to do so.
But those aren’t the only allegations hitting Downing Street. According to a previously written CNN article, Johnson is also facing allegations that he was happy to let Britons die to prevent another wave from hitting the country.
One of the larger controversies is that of the alleged funding for the renovation. Having totaled a reported 200,000 it is unclear exactly how Johnson got the funding. What is clear, however, is that Johnson did not declare such to the Electoral Commission which is tightly regulated by law. As a result of that inaction, Johnson is now on the block for possible fines and prosecution for breaking a law even he is not immune from.
Under UK law, any donations or funding rounds of more than £7,500 ($10,400) must be reported to the EC.
