Labourâ€™s home wrecker candidate for Tukituki, Anna â€śMargeâ€ť Lorck is another minor loser in our list from the past year.
She reckoned she was going to win by 10,000 but turned out to be a terrible candidate and created bad press just about everywhere she went. As far as bloggers go Marge is a dream candidate as she gives us so many free hits. She has to be the worst candidate in New Zealand outside of Colin Craig, beating even the truly dreadful Sue Moroney who didnâ€™t manage to create anywhere near as much negative press.
IÂ took a strong position on Anna â€śMargeâ€ť Lorck from the very beginning.
There are two groups of people who should not be allowed toÂ hold public office, wife beaters and women who break upÂ marriages.
The tipline hasÂ been running hot about what an awful woman Lorck is, and howÂ she ruined her business partnerâ€™s marriage stealing him fromÂ his heavily pregnant wife.
Personal ethics should be the starting point to anyÂ political career, not an afterthought that is glossed over.
Lorck should be outed as having appalling personal ethics,Â and Labour voters in Tukituki should give their party voteÂ to Labour and their electorate vote to another candidate toÂ send a message that homewreckers shouldnâ€™t run forÂ parliament.
IÂ called out Marge for not disclosing here political affiliations when she wrote an op-ed in the paper. Fairfax withdrew the article.
This is pretty shameless stuff going on here. More fool Fairfax for falling for it.
There should however be a disclaimer telling readers that she is the Labour candidate for Tukituki.
UPDATE: Fairfax have withdrawn the article. Â
