Greens pay up

From our PayItBack Watch:
The Green Party yesterday presented a cheque for $87,082 to cover the amount identified in the Auditor General's report as being outside his interpretation of the rules... "The Green MPs and Co-Leader Russel Norman each paid their share of the amount from their own pocket while the party itself also contributed a large amount."We are incredibly grateful to our members and supporters who rallied around and helped to raise about half of the total amount.
Who's next? Anyone?

UPDATE: Still $1,054,325 of your money to be paid back (and, you might argue, a stolen election to return), and only 136 days until the "end of the financial year"when Helen has promised to pay back her lump -- whenever exactly "end of the financial year" is for the Clark Government.
