Another minister misleads parliament

Nat reveals porn teacher continued to work – Stuff.co.nz

Another minister has been caught with his pants around his ankles. This time it is Steve Maharey who has misled parliament.

Maharey told Parliament that the man no longer held a practising certificate and was not employed at any school.

But today National’s Katherine Rich revealed the art teacher – who posted hard-core pornographic pictures of himself and two women on internet sites seeking sex with girls “the younger the better” – worked at a secondary school for around 10 days over a three-week period up until last week.

Yep that’s right, Minister Maharey was wrong, and it seems there is nothing the government can do about it either, leading one to speculate as to why we bother having practising certificates if they don’t need them to work in the sector.

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.
