A liar and a repeater

Today Andrea Vance has run a story about Louisa Wall and her partner Prue Kapua‘s nice little earner investment property.

Labour list MP Louisa Wall is using taxpayer money to rent her Manurewa electorate office – from her civil-union partner.

Yes I wonder where Andrea found that out from…not even the cowards way out of saying “on a blog site“.

But I thought Louisa Wall’s answers were interesting.

It was incorrect to say the property was bought before the election. But she added: “I don’t know when it was bought, but it was bought after the general election.

“Actually, that’s got nothing to do with me. I rent a space so I don’t own the building.

Actually Lousia Wall is lying. The building was bought on November 9 and the Land Information and Title details prove that. Not only that the photos of the new office were also posted to her Facebook page on 1 November….before the purchase.

So it looks like she was using it for her campaign headquarters and then they decided to buy it. But according to Louisa Wall she knew nothing of all this…it was a little surprise clearly from Prue Kapua.

The story was bad in that it lacked attribution and worse in that Andrea Vance didn’t call Louisa Wall on her bullshit.
