You can't make this stuff up

Nominations for local body elections closed today, and so the Manawatu Standard finally revealed that one of the candidates for Palmerston North's mayoralty, Arshad Chatha, is in prison until the election on passport fraud and forgery charges. Naturally, he's planning to run on a law and order and moral issues platform.

Still, it could be worse. We could have John Banks.
