Another Labour representative goes down for fraud

Manukau City Councillor James Papali'i has finally been convicted on 15 charges of fraud for nicking ratepayers money given to a club he ran.

He joins a long list of Labour politicians who have either been convicted or have had prima facie cases found against them. It is an illustrious list including the Prime Minister,  Heather Simpson, Philip "El Jefe" Field, David Benson-Pope and David Maka.

There must be something inherently wrong with the labour Party that it keeps selecting felons as its representatives way above the proportion of felons in our society.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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