Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales accused of expenses rort

"Because the last thing I want to do is take a break from fucking your brains out all night to work on your wikipedia entry."

The scandal engulfing Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has spread, with a former executive claiming Wales improperly used the non-profit organisation's funds for his own lavish recreation.

Danny Wool, who was effectively Wales' right-hand man for two years before he left the donor-supported Wikimedia Foundation last year, said Wales had tried to claim the cost of items such as a visit to a massage parlour in Moscow and expensive bottles of wine.

The claims come just as Wales' messy break-up with a girlfriend he met via his free online encyclopedia plays out in the public domain. It includes claims Wales broke Wikipedia's own conflict of interest rules by attempting to influence the site's editing process.

Wales has denied any wrongdoing.
