Aren't green lefties wonderful?

From El Pais:

"A Spanish member of the European Parliament embezzled “tens of thousands of euros” in public money to pad his own pockets or those of his party, the European Union’s anti-fraud office has concluded following a 10-month investigation. David Hammerstein, a US born member of the Green Party who was elected MEP on the Socialist Party’s list in the last European parliamentary elections in 2004, allegedly artificially inflated the salaries of his aides in order to claim the maximum of €15,496 per month in public funding for staff wages. However, most the money, fraud investigators with the EU’s OLAF agency have concluded, was never seen by his staff".

His remarkably empty declaration of interests is available here.

How many pounds of mung beans, pairs of organic espadrilles etc etc will €15,496 a month buy?
