Running for election, with police in hot pursuit

The RCMP has launched a criminal investigation of the federal government.

Has anything like this happened before? I'm searching my memory of various election books, but I can't find anything quite like a criminal investigation of the government in power right in the middle of an election campaign. Surely if anything like it had ever happened, John Duffy couldn't have resisted mentioning it somewhere in the in-between parts of Fights of our Lives.

What really blows me away, though, is that We the People are hardly batting an eye. I'm not suggesting the outraged citizenry should burn down Parliament, but couldn't we at least laugh?
