A FORMER PP politician on corruption charges claims his wife blew the lid on Town Hall money laundering because she is mentally ill.

Alfonso Grau, an ex-deputy mayor in Valencia, said depression caused Maria Jose Alcon to make the claims to her son in a 2015 conversation, which was recorded by police.

Alcon allegedly outlined how dirty money from the PP could be used to fund the PP’s municipal election campaign that May.

Grau claims his wife’s admittance to hospital and her demotion to number 16 on the PP’s electoral list explain her actions.
