Greens Misusing Taxpayer Funds Again, Breaking the Law

The Green Party is using Parliamentary funding to sponsor the attached Facebook advertisement. The advertisement includes the message “Vote Marama Davidson”.


Furthermore – the Greens Facebook page is rife with breaches… where Parliamentary Funded ads now feature a vote message.. this is quite illegal…and suggests their parliamentary funding for the anti-asset sales efforts by them was also illegal:

parliamentary services funging

Fat chance of them ever being prosecuted, the Police haven’t acted on any complaints from the Electoral Commission. The Greens know this and so just willy-nilly break the law.

    Another case of “do as we say, not as we do”
    Hopefully the respective authorities will have this brought to their attention and act just as prudently as they have done with PD & United Future’s breaches of the law.

    Is this an ad or just a post on Facebook?

    • tarkwin

      Even worse, it’s groundhog day.

  • sarah

    I believe it to be an ad as it popped up on my News Feeds and Im not even subscribed to their stupid page

    Where is Graham McCready when you need him.

    • Travis Poulson

      Probably a Green voter.

      • WayneO

        I contend the Mr. McCready would be one of those morons that spoils his voting paper with some hurriedly scrawled statement in orange pen protesting outrage at ‘the man’.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Storm in a tea cup. Nothing to answer here folks, just move on.

  • Muffin

    What don’t a dozen or so of us file a complaint with the police?

  • Scott

    I think Labour should seek an inquiry into this.

  • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

    Mr Slater, you filed a complaint with the police regarding Phil Goff. How about you file one for this if you haven’t already?

  • steve and monique

    Speaks volumes about the integrity and the intelligence of the Greens. Should a Complaint be laid..Would not bother,it is not worth the ink,and effort. Russell and his village idiots wont have the collective brain power to see they were wrong.

    If the police refuse to act and the parties are thinking the law is a joke then why not give the electoral commission more teeth? Surely a case of clear wrongdoing should be punished by way of holding funding by parliament when it comes to electoral funding. If matters such as this are not nipped in the bud then it will be anything goes for any political party. If our so called leaders are allowed to screw the system they can hardly expect the public to follow the law.

    Just take the web page down, someone must be able to do that, solve the problem.
    Noddy Norman question time in the house,” PM did you take my web page down if not why not”

    Bloody idiots and someone needs to give Clint a rev up for not knowing about this. That Green MP and former diplomat Kennedy Graham would be horrified to see his party breaking the law.

  • Spiker

    Vote Green – the wanker’s choice.

    • jeffy tang

      Lol yeah wankers I bet they masturbate and stuff eh

  • jeffy tang

    Do you remove comments Mr whale oil? CENSORSHIP!

    • jeffy tang

      I did do a swear, which is shocking.

    • WayneO

      Posts often take several minutes to show up. It’s Disqus’s server, not censorship.

    Our kids got individually addressed mail pieces yesterday from Genter paid for by Parliamentary post with a Freepost response card also paid for by the taxpayer. Their names were obviously taken from the election roll.

  • GeorgeRomero

    Can anyone explain where this magic land ,full of rainbows and unicorns that the greens call ‘Aotearoa New Zealand’ is?I can’t find it on the map

  • Troy

    If Clint said it’s ok, it’s not for the Green MP’s to question that. Reminds of when people challenged H1 and got dealt to by her lesbian lover H2.
