The Greens have waded into the Plunket fiasco by slamming the decision to use McKesson Corporation.
 
They cite US news about McKesson where they paid $3 million in settlement of serious fraud allegations. 

[quote]McKesson Corporation, the parent company of McKesson New Zealand, which was recently awarded the PlunketLine contract, paid the US Government US$3 million in February to settle claims that it defrauded the United States Defense Department by overcharging for pharmaceutical products.

The company was also embroiled in separate fraud allegations several years ago which saw its former Chief Financial Officer indicted on charges of conspiracy and securities fraud.[/quote]

Not one to support the Greens but it is hard to argue otherwise on this issue.
