“Brexit: Electoral Commission reopens probe into Vote Leave”

From the UK here is an interesting matter involving election finance limits from the Brexit referendum: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-42055523

Was the paying of the bills of a third party in accordance with the rules, or did it result in the Leave campaign exceeding the spending limits?

That will be up to the Electoral Commission to decide and then surely for the courts to adjudicate. An interesting set of facts that provides insight into just how much money is involved in elections and the steps that political actors take to spend as much money as possible without running afoul of the election finance laws that seek to limit their influence.
