Taito's vote-rigging allegations

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

It’s all like a domino effect – once one skeleton falls out of the closet, so do the rest.

Its seems around a year ago, El Jefe was at the centre of an allegation of vote-rigging in the 2004 Local Body Elections, and was also accused of being in breach of the local electoral act with a leaflet he sent out.

During the election campaign, it appears that El Jefe sent out a leaflet to Mangere residents urging them to vote for local Labour council candidates. It is alleged that the leaflet did not contain the appropriate authorization and was also sent with tax-payer funded envelopes and stamps.

Local Govt Minister, and El Jefe friend, Chris Carter was asked to act on the issue, but was of course silent and would not comment.

Police were also asked to investigate but, as expected, nothing as been heard since. I wonder why?

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
