SYDNEY — Two former Cape Breton MLAs are among those facing charges in connection with the RCMP investigation into last year’s MLA expense scandal.

Halifax

Former Glace Bay MLA Dave Wilson is charged with fraud exceeding $5,000, 31 counts of uttering a forged document and breach of public trust.

Former Cape Breton West MLA Russell MacKinnon is charged with fraud exceeding $5,000, eight counts of uttering a forged document and breach of public trust.

Also facing charges are Richard Hurlburt (fraud exceeding $5,000, uttering a forged document and breach of public trust) and Trevor Zinck (fraud exceeding $5,000, two counts of theft over $5,000 and breach of public trust). They are all scheduled to appear in Halifax provincial court April 20.

The charges come after auditor general Jacques Lapointe released a report just over a year ago that uncovered several cases of what he described as excessive and inappropriate spending of constituency funds allotted to the 52 members of the legislature.
