Random Impertinent Questions

Since we are leading up to the National Party conference and the media seems to be focusing on donations, it is time for some RIQs.

National insiders say the party is “awash with cash”. Auckland’s Susan Chou, who is linked to a company hoping to buy the Crafar farms, gave $100,000 in May.

One source said the party has been shrewd about fundraising, appealing to people to donate below the threshold once a year, to maximise the amount they could give, while staying anonymous.

I wonder:

What percentage of funds come from the victory fund?

What percentage comes from the presidents fundraising?

What percentage of the target did the president hit?

    The usual story Cam; never ask a question the answer to which you don’t know. I suspect you know, or have a pretty good idea, that the president’s fundraising attempts have been woeful!
