One thing you see frequently on the blogosphere (and the MSM) is that the headlines get quoted if the detail isn’t favorable, and the detail gets quoted if the headline isn’t favorable.
The Winston headline that he was let off by the electoral commission has been all over the radio this morning, but reading kiwiblog, it looks like the detail is more damming but has not been released.
The fact remains however, that Winston knowingly received donations from a trust he stated clearly did not exist, that he did know existed, of the type he had spoken out against loudly and often.
The man is a hypocrite, and corrupt. This ruling changes nothing of that.
Meanwhile Act get pinged for not declaring the discounted use of an office that was never used for campaigning. Hardly the same thing but you’d never know it if you only listened to Morning Report.
