Stealing taxpayers money? Surely some mistake....

UKIP MEP Tom Wise is facing investigations for alleged fraud over staff salary irregularities according to the Sunday Times' latest investigation. Bank documents show that Mr Wise channelled nearly £40,000 of public money into his personal bank account after claiming that it was for an assistant's salary.

From November 2004 until October 2005, Mr Wise directed £39,100 of taxpayers' money into his own bank account, of which he paid his researcher Lindsay Jenkins just £13,555.

A clerical error, no doubt!
