DBP in hot water again.

David Benson-Pope gets himself into hot water once again, this time selectively leaking the police file to the Herald on Sunday.

What is even more embaressing for DBP is that his office initially denied the allegations. I am surprised, however, given his track record to truthfulness so far, that he sought to correct the error when he hasn’t admitted such lies in the past.

Leaking the file has done him no favours n the long term because eventually the leak would be, and has been revealed. Any short term benefit has vanished and more opportunities have arisen for the opposition to question DBP’s judgement and ability to serve in the cabinet.
