Doubt he'd be stupid enough to do this deliberately. Probably technical fault or human error by someone else.

Poor oul Dimmy Tooley & Niall - caught by the bollix:-

Quote:
A senior Fianna Fáil frontbencher has apologised after admitting a colleague voted for him on a number of occasions while he was not in the Dáil.

Timmy Dooley, the party’s spokesman on communications, the environment and natural resources, was not in his seat during a time on Thursday when six electronic votes were recorded in his name.

Speaking to The Irish Times on Saturday, he said he understood his colleague Niall Collins, TD for Limerick and Fianna Fáil’s foreign affairs spokesman, voted on his behalf.

“I was present in the Dáil on Thursday and went to the chamber after the voting bell sounded,” he said.

“I left the chamber to take a phone call. I was made aware yesterday that my vote was recorded.

“I understand from Niall Collins, that under the mistaken belief that I was at the back of the chamber on the phone, he pressed my voting button.”

Mr Dooley, a TD for Clare, added: “I have spoken to the Ceann Comhairle today, to explain what happened and apologise for the misunderstanding.”

Mr Collins confirmed he voted for Mr Dooley on six occasions on Thursday, adding that he did so without being asked.

“I thought he was up the back of the chamber, in the lobby, on the phone up there, but when I checked it with him, he had actually exited the chamber,” he said.
