Misconduct In Public Office?

"Misconduct in public office is an offence at common law triable only on indictment. It carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. It is an offence confined to those who are public office holders and is committed when the office holder acts (or fails to act) in a wayLink that constitutes a breach of the duties of that office" -

The Crown Prosecution Service.

Don't want to kick a bloke when he's down and all that, but doesn't seeking funds for a private company, even a non-profit one, when you're a member of the Cabinet fall within that definition?
