258. Cllr. David Hart

Tory Councillor (Bradley Stoke, Bristol) David Hart was convicted on 2 counts of theft in 2007 after forging a fellow councillor’s signature to steal almost £9,000 of taxpayers’ money from the council while he was chairman of the Finance Committee on Bradley Stoke Town Council. He was given 180 hours community service and ordered to repay some of the stolen money. Hart also had a previous conviction for forgery from 1998, which apparently did not deter local Tories from appointing him to such an important position of trust
