Fed up with politics, man eats vote...

Ballot stuffing took on a new meaning in Italy's parliamentary election on Sunday, April 13, when a man ate his ballot paper in protest at the country's politicians.

Police in Naples said they had charged the 41-year-old businessman with destroying election materials.

He said all Italian politicians and politics "are crap" and that he was protesting "against the system."
