LDP's Akagi quits over scandal

Agriculture Minister Norihiko Akagi has resigned over a financial scandal involving his political organization, according to NHK. His organization's dubious accounting practices are blamed for the major loss suffered by the governing Liberal Democratic Party in Sunday's Upper House election.

Wouldn't it have made more sense to resign before the election, if he really felt he had done something wrong?
