26. Cllr. Gary Stagg

Labour Councillor (Sutton/Surrey) Gary Stagg – Convicted on 2 counts of corruption and jailed for 18 months in 1998 after being caught trying to solicit cash backhanders from a local charity in return for supporting a land deal they were pursuing. The Labour sleazebag was caught red-handed attempting to trouser a £60,000 bung from the charity after being secretly filmed and taped by undercover police officers. Stagg was recorded saying: “I have to be careful. Tony’s (Blair) lot would not like this and I could be imprisoned.” http://tinyurl.com/yun9c4
