Who's the naughty boy!!


Roarprawn is back swimming.
And after a moving and upsetting piece on her own experience of violent abuse yesterday, BustedBlonde is back to her target of rooting out corruption.

Which defeated Labour Cabinet Minister is said to have used taxpayer money to fly his taxpayer-paid and supposedly nonpartisan portfolio private secretaries to fly to Auckland to hand out Labour Party propaganda around his electorate and provide other advice and assistance to his campaign?
Hint: It’s the same defeated Labour Cabinet Minister who, as part of his electorate office’s work in assisting people to enrol to vote, is said to have destroyed voter enrolment forms from people suspected of being likely to vote National, and only forwarded the enrolment forms to the Electoral Commission if he thought the potential voter was a Labourite.

Another hint: It’s the same defeated Labour Cabinet Minister who used his taxpayer-paid staff to write creepy congratulations letters to every kid in his electorate who won a prize at their school prizegivings. And we’re not just talking secondary-school kids. Come third in chess at your local primary school in his electorate and you could expect to get a personally signed letter from your local MP – with handwritten “PSs” to the parents. Yuk.

Inventory 2 thinks it might be Chris Carter, but my guess is Damien O'Connor.
Anyone any other ideas?

O'Conner didn't have an Auckland electorate. But I wouldn't trust Carter as far as I could throw him, which isn't far!

Cheers IV2.

Now, wasn't Phil Goff defeated on the electorate vote?

Why would O'Connor fly to Auckland and campaign when he is from the West Coast?

Strictly speaking only three Auckland seats changed hands. Auckland Central and Judith isn't a man but she also did the same kinds of things. Maungakiekie and Gosche retired and wasn't a minister and Waitakere which was a ugly woman called Lynne Pillay granted but certainly no man.

Thanks Whale Oil.
So what can we say of RoarPrawn's riddle?
What suggestions do you have?

Chris carter was the one sending congratulation letters to little kids.

RP didn't specifically say that it was a Cabinet Minister defeated in an electorate, which widens the field somewhat. I'm still going for Carter, and I'm pleased that Bill agrees. He lied to the Police over Paintergate, and I quite simply don't trust him - he oozes the patronising, superior attitude that characterised Helen Clark's administration.

Is this the same Chris Carter who goes on holiday with his boss? Yuk is right.

Did you hear him on election night (National radio)?
Sycophantic, nauseous.
