Dear Electoral Commission
The Electoral Commission's postbag just got that little bit heavier.
This time the correspondence is from the Secretary of State for Wales - and Work and Pensions Secretary - Peter Hain. Late last night he left Cardiff and left us under no illusions that all donations to his deputy leadership campaign were listed online for all to see.
Tonight he's admitted that he failed to register a #5,000 donation by Labour's new chief fund raiser, Jon Mendelsohn. That the Electoral Commission weren't told about it was, he says, an "administrative error".
This from Mr Hain:
"In the light of recent events, it has come to my attention that a donation from Jon Mendelsohn to my deputy leadership campaign was mistakenly not registered with the Electoral Commission," Mr Hain said in a statement.
"Jon Mendelsohn made a personal contribution of #5,000 at the end of June 2007. We wish to make clear that this was entirely an administrative error on the part of my campaign. I very much regret that the donation was not registered as it should have been and I am taking immediate steps to do so."
Mr Mendelsohn wasn't the party's fund raiser at the time he made the donation but if his name's familiar to you, it's because he's facing calls for his resignation because he was aware two months ago of the donations to Labour made via third parties by property developer David Abrahams.
