The image of the controversial candidate to Seimas in the Vilnius Naujoji Vilnia district Algirdas Paleckis, who cannot boast any big income, is fairly paradoxical. He has received considerable sums from what is suspected to be the unemployed and pensioners, lives in a house on Laurai street, while a half million litas loan mysteriously up and vanished following some scandalous rhetoric from Paleckis, who had no income to cover the loan himself.
