Is it enough to remove all whitespace preceding a ';'?
py> text = "email at msn.com ;email at msn.com
py> import re
py> re.sub('\s+;', ';', text)
'email at msn.com;email at msn.com;name, firstname;info;2010-01-01T00:00:00'

Those single quotes are confusing -- they aren't in the original string as
you posted it... Apart from that, my solution worked fine in this example.
