Resign as an MP

This petition had 13,047 supporters

Alistair Carmichael, for your part in the leaking of a false document designed to deliberately sabotage the election campaign of a political opponent while being a cabinet minister. You should resign.

An action you denied at the time.

It was a clear misuse of your office, your position and trust of the public. 

You retained your seat in the House of Commons as well as a £67,060 salary (plus expenses) at the tax payers expense. You retained this by using dishonesty and smear tactics.

You won by only 817 votes.

The people of Orkney and Shetland deserve an MP who is honest and trustworthy. Something you have now proven yourself to be incapable of.

We the undersigned demand that you remove yourself from your position and allow a by-election to take place.
