Electoral Commission confirms Police referral for Labour

The Electoral Commission has confirmed:

On 15 August 2011, the Electoral Commission referred the following matters to Police:

  • Charles Chauvel MP, Ohariu Census,
  • ACT Party newspaper advertisements in Sunday Star Times and NZ Herald
  • Labour Party ‘Prices are Rising Faster than Wages’ flyer.
It is the Electoral Commission’s view that the publication of each of these items constitutes a breach of sections 204F and 204H of the Electoral Act 1993 because the items are election advertisements that do not contain a valid promoter statement and were not authorised in writing by the party secretary.
As these matters are now with the Police, the Electoral Commission will not be commenting further.

I blogged about Charles Chauvel’s now illegal Ohariu Census back on July 12.

I think I can claim another victim. The really funny thing about this is that Labour used Charles Chauvel to front the last time they got referred to the Police.

Labour can’t run a website and now they can’t even book ads properly. They surely can’t be trusted to run the country.

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.
