Ethics violation collapses Japan's minority party

Why do these people think for a moment that they can pull this crap and not get caught? Once again, we see proof that unethical behavior not only gives you a guilty conscience, but when (not if) you get caught, it'll blow up in your face. Even if it doesn't seem to be working in the scandal-ridden US government at the moment, it will. Meanwhile, Japan's opposition party has just shot itself in the foot, big time, by faking an e-mail alleging connection to a corporation under investigation.

Party leader Seiji Maehara and his lieutenants stepped down after the party's credibility was torpedoed by one of its own lawmakers, who used a fraudulent e-mail in an apparent attempt to discredit Koizumi's ruling Liberal Democratic Party.

The funny thing is I'm sure they could have found some real dirt--no need to make any up. then the scandal would have played their way.
