Gardai may probe Callely expenses

(UKPA) – 2 hours ago

A Green Party TD has lodged an official complaint with the gardai about the expenses claims of controversial Senator Ivor Callely.

Paul Gogarty, who has written to the Seanad complaining about the politician’s alleged conduct, went to Dublin’s Lucan Garda Station asking for an investigation to be carried out.

Fianna Fail suspended Senator Callely from the party on Tuesday as it launched its own probe into his expenses after fresh allegations that he had used forged documents to claim from the Oireachtas.

This latest grandstanding by this foul-mouthed TD is laughable

If he really has an ounce of credibility he should report the con artistes in the Cabinet to the fraud squad and the CAB should be called in

These crooks have robbed the Irish taxpayers of billions of euro to bail our corrupt Banks and dodgier Developers and are still allowing the same corrupt banks to charge 300% and more on mortgage interest payments to their hard pressed and bewildered customers

This TD (Paul Gogarty) has sold out every core value he had in order to hold on to power and the perks he now enjoys at the expense of the betrayed taxpayers of this country.

In my eyes he is no better that Callely and the rest of the cronies and leaches that populate the senate and the Dail chamber

I call on all TD, s to publish in their entirety all the expanses and recipes so the general public can see for themselves who is calming for what

This should be done on the internet and Kildarestreet .com would be an excellent platform for the Ladies and Gents who  proclaim to be public servants .

  

Please send your TD,s  an  e-mail calling for them to publish their entire expenses now on the web

TDs lavish expenses


 

A TD can currently claim €5,482 in general expenses per year without paying tax on it. A sum of €34,484 is also provided to TDs to pay for a constituency secretary. This position is often occupied by a family member of the TD.

TDs who earn €100,000 a year in salaries can also boost their income with a tax-free daily allowance of €61.53 for attending the Dail if they live within 15 miles of the Oireachtas. Members of the Oireachtas who live more than 15 miles away can claim an overnight allowance of €139.67 tax free.

Critics have claimed that unlike ordinary workers, the existence of these daily allowances effectively means TDs and senators are being paid to turn up to work.

Politicians can also claim a tax-free allowance of €8,888 for running a constituency office and can claim up to €8,782 for “constituency travel”. They can also get €6,348 to go towards their telephone expenses.

The real shock here is that they have not being paying their taxes on these lavish expenses!
