Convicted blackmailer Graham McCready at it again

I see Graham McCready is at it again, pursuing people through the courts, wasting their time, wasting them money. The media just play along with him too, calling him a former accountant.
United Future leader Peter Dunne says a private prosecution being brought against him by a former accountant is “nonsense”.
Wellington man Graham McCready filed papers today at the Wellington District Court and sent documents to Mr Dunne.
Mr Dunne said he received the documents today, but had not had a chance to get a legal opinion on them.
He said his initial reaction was that the charges were “simply nonsense”.
Mr Dunne is the third politician Mr McCready has targeted for prosecution, alongside ACT leader John Banks and Labour MP Trevor Mallard.
Mr McCready has accused Mr Dunne of fraud by receiving $3846.10 between April 30 and June 1 as a fortnightly instalment of his $100,000 payment as a leader of a registered political party.
During this time the party had determined there were insufficient numbers to declare United Future had 500 members, and Speaker David Carter had made no determination that Mr Dunne could keep the money in the meantime, Mr McCready said.
Why won’t the media call him for what he is…a convicted tax fraudster, a convicted blackmailer, banned director and a former bankrupt?
He is a vexatious litigant and he needs to be declared as such. It is people like him who have far too much time on their hands that clog up the court system with frivolous, time consuming and expensive litigation. It is high time the threshold to qualify as a vexatious litigant was significantly lowered.
