The Dompost has this about Kris “Memories” Fa’afoi;

Meanwhile, the frontrunner to win the seat, Labour’s Kris Faafoi, has come under fire on National-leaning blogs for claiming he remembered when the first McDonald’s came to Porirua – to stress his family links to the area despite growing up in Christchurch. He was too young to have remembered the event.

He has since said he “mis-spoke”, and meant to say he had heard it was the first McDonald’s in the country and it was where he had his first McDonald’s burger.

He mis-spoke…Ironic since Hillary Clinton is here, that’s her line, the real world translation is that he lied. Clearly “memories” is intending to continue as he started, with lies.

A note for the DomPost too. The headline screams “National’s candidate doesn’t live in Mana”.

I hope during next years election campaign they will run similar headlines for John Key, who lives in Parnell not Helensville, Phil Goff, who lives in Clevedon not Mt Roskill, Ross Robertson, who lives in Clevedon not Manukau East, and David Cunliffe, who lives in Herne Bay not New Lynn. I am sure they are more, and I intend to do a post on this sometime but it is hardly the headline issue when the Labour candidate has been caught fair and square lying.
