OTTAWA — A former Conservative MP who spent time behind bars for electoral offences is accusing Canada's elections authority of having a personal vendetta against him — and he's calling for a parliamentary investigation.

Dean Del Mastro was handed a one-month jail term in 2014 after being convicted of failing to report a $21,000 contribution he made to his own 2008 re-election campaign, overspending and knowingly filing a false report.

The ex-parliamentary secretary to former prime minister Stephen Harper is calling on MPs to launch a thorough investigation into the handling of his case that would include testimony from Canada's elections commissioner.
