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.
