One down, eight to go

One of the nine charities to which Winston Peters 'donated' money that didn't belong to him (that is, taxpayer money he illegally used for electioneering in 205) has returned it, saying, "it is unclear if the party 'has any right' to make a charitable donation on money wrongly spent at the last election."

Good on the Cystic Fibrosis Association.  Why not reward them for their honesty?

The Dompost today has the Tom Scott cartoon and first three or four letters to the editor ripping shit out of Winston for his stunt.

I am afraid that Adam has felt impelled to post twice today on this matter, given the recent statements by Winston
