Labor MP and West Yorkshire mayoral candidate Tracy Brabin has raised her eyebrows after being handed brownies on more than one occasion during her current campaign, in breach of the election law.

LibDem local councilor Tom Gordon pointed out now he has seen Brabin “Away from home with boxes of brownies on top that say ‘Vote Work’,” asking West Yorkshire police if it would be considered an electoral offense under treatment laws.
A separate message from local candidate Kerron Cross saw him thank Brabin on “vote for work chocolate brownies ” given by Brabin that day, that the “The whole family loved it”
