Disgraced Conservative Lord Peter Cruddas has donated more than £500,000 to Boris Johnson's party after becoming a peer. He was subsequently nominated for a peerage by Boris Johnson despite the advice of the House of Lords Appointments Commission. Following the Sunday Times's story, Cruddas stepped down as co-treasurer of the Conservative Party. Johnson's decision to overrule the Appointments Commission was the first time their advice had been overruled. "An internal Conservative Party investigation subsequently found that there had been no intentional wrongdoing on Mr Cruddas' part."
