Andrew Gall in trouble for his disgusting tweet

The other day I blogged about a disgusting tweet by a Department of Conservation employee about John Key’s daughter Stephanie, after Kim Dotcom started with all the creepiness.


I challenged Andrew Gall on Twitter about it and he justified his position. He first claimed that he was a follower of mine, I asked him about his disgusting attack on Stephanie Key, his reply and my final comment are below.

At least he can’t now deny his account was hacked. He admitted to sending the tweet by justifying it. However it now seems Andrew Gall is in a spot of bother now. 

I refer readers to some correspondence that has come my way.


Comment: For Director General

You are no doubt aware by now  of the actions of your employee, Mr Andrew Gull, System Support Administrator, in his tweet to Kim Dotcom where he volunteered his services to f**k the daughter of John Key and send a video of it to the Prime Minister.

You may be aware that such action may constitute an offence under Section 66 of the Crimes Act 1961.

You will certainly be aware that such conduct is not in keeping with the State Services Code of Conduct for Public Servants.

Would you please advise the action being taken by your Department in this matter.

Thank you

    looks, shoots, scores….

  • Gungadin

    His next roll might be at the SPCA with other sick puppies !

  • cows4me

    Mr Gall could well be on DOC’s endangered species list by now, If it was my daughter he would be waiting in the taxidermist’s deep freeze by now.

    • Nechtan

      Surely you wouldn’t want it stuffed and mounted?

      • cows4me

        No you wouldn’t want that over the fireplace but he would be a good talking point mounted over the bar in the shooting shed.

        • Nechtan

          Nice. Like it.

  • JC

    I mean.. what else did the fool think would happen?

    Next bit of fallout is on Dotcom himself.. it was his suggestive tweet that inspired this and given that he has personalised his run in with the authorities to himself versus Key it looks like he was looking for just such a reaction from someone like Gall.


    • Nechtan

      Did Dotcom give any sign of disapproving of Gall’s tweet? If not, makes him just as disgusting.

  • maninblack

    haha!! shoots he scores!

    Thanks Cam.

    and what is the chance that the MSM will report this? You would have better luck getting your money back from Ross Asset Management and putting it on a Labour victory in Australia

      Maybe I was a little hasty. Hope this embedding works.

      @AndoNZ hello, would you like to comment on the situation re: your Stephie Key tweet for a Stuff story?— Nicole Pryor (@NicolePryor) August 30, 2013

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        Embedding didn’t work bro…

        • wanarunna

          Funny, actually looks as if it did from my end. Anyway, Nicole Pryor from Fairfax tweeted asking for whether he had any comment for a Stuff story….

          • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

            My mistake wanarunna, it looks fine now, when I looked at it before, it had the embedded code underneath the message, so I thought some of the text didn’t come through….

  • GregM

    Good job. Actions have consequences which the worlds second best sysop has just found out.

  • Patrick

    Somehow the MSM will turn this around & that nasty overlord John Key caused all this & then had the poor chappie sacked.

    All power to Al Morrison though – go get ’em & kick his ass Al.

    • AngryTory

      Doesn’t matter. The courts & CYFS take a very dim view of incitement to rape, and an extremely dim view of incitement to rape as a political weapon

      Incitement to rape the daughter of the PM – in my view (and I’m not a lawyer) is clearly “incitement to the use of force for the purpose of overthrowing the Government of New Zealand:.

      and that’s treason.

      • Bryan

        in the states he would have had a visit from the Men in dark suits glasses and bulging pockets dragged out the back door and never seen again and offered a cuban holiday if it had been obamas daugther

        • AngryTory

          Naa. They’d have just shot him for resisting arrest.

  • steve and monique

    Hope he used his work computer. What a Dickhead!!

    • Patrick

      Better work stories – or is that a different Government Department?

      • Hazards001


    • AngryTory

      Doesn’t matter. Inciting rape as a tool of politics is pretty much as bad as it gets. He won’t be allowed to resign – and given what he’s done, I doubt he’d be offered a plea bargain either.

      His best but would be not to contest the divorce proceedings, plead guilty to incitement to rape, accept say a 10 year sentence and the rest of his life on the “do not employ” and sex offender registers…

      • steve and monique

        Fair point, But figure this mongrel will only get a slap on his hand.

        • AngryTory

          Nope. Doesn’t work that way in the NZ public service, in CYFS, and especially now with Crusher’s list.

          • steve and monique

            Well let the kicking begin. Mongrel deserves everything they can throw at him.

      • Jonathan Pull

        He didn’t incite rape you moron, he suggested someone should fuck her. Plenty of young people “fuck” or are you suggesting that they are now all raping each other?
        Whos to say his suggestion didn’t mean befriending her with the intentions of having sex or “fucking” her to the use it against Key?

        Naturally you like to blow things out of proportion and go all medieval on punishment which is rather boring as its all you ever suggest.

  • Plue

    And nothing on the internet ever dies, this will follow him like a very bad smell for a long time. I feel bad for him….. not

    Good job I hope tis scumbag loses his job , now how do we get ride of the fat german

    • Martin White

      Oh yeah Steve I can’t wait to see that pervy fat kraut being yanked off stage left by a crook to a Federal penitentery – have to be a big crook to fit around the mammoth chins.

  • snakebit

    Oh i love this…good work wo!

  • rrroberto

    This is no defence, and it should not affect the outcome. Firstly the comment was a lot worse than tasteless, as suggested by its author. However to be totally fair, I did not see a comment of rape, though an inference could be made. Secondly the DOS spokesperson seemed to infer that Mr Gall volunteered to do the tasteless deed himself, whereas his tweet specified an ex employee of Herr Dotcom. So if its a trial by media, then let it be a fair trial.
    The comment did have a political undertone of wishing harm on the PM by proxy, and as such its a threat which needs to be taken seriously, and would provide just cause for the GCSB to obtain legal warrants to investigate all employees of Mega Upload, ex employees and current, including the boss

    • Rat

      Yeah thats exactly what I read into it…but hey, you cant argue with pitchforks

      • Lion_ess

        Pitchforks? rroberto is correct – no comment of rape but a rather strong inference. Second observation is also correct re an ex employee of Herr Dotcom carrying out the deed. However, in saying that, anyone who wants their internet footprint to include this history seriously needs some help – particularly someone employed by the Government, commenting from a work computer and making references about the Prime Minister’s daughter; and employees within the IT Sector should understand internet footprints.
        As someone commented on the earlier post, hey dumb, meet dumber.

        • AngryTory

          Help? It’s far to late for help – for him at least – his wife and kids hopefully can be got away from him for good.

          Advocating rape for political ends isn’t stupid. It isn’t just plainly criminal, it’s a crime against humanity

          If NZ doesn’t thrown him in jail – someone like Amnesty could take NZ to the Court of Justice in the Hague.

          • Guest

            He didn’t advocate rape you raving nut job. He suggested someone fuck her.

            Fuck=sex which can be consensual

          • Jon

            Are you for real, you are a nut bar.

      • snakebit

        He suggested sex be used as a weapon…..f*ck him, he deserves what he gets!!!!!

        • Hazards001

          Pffft…sex has been used as a weapon ever since Eve got Adam to eat an apple.

    • OT Richter

      Exactly. I suggest the complainant isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, and couldn’t even get the surname right.

      Great news for Gall tho. I wonder if the msm will pick this up.

      • AngryTory

        According to his twitter account stuff was in touch

    • AngryTory

      It’s clearly “advocating or inciting” rape and as such Gall is prima facie guilty of a crime with a tariff of 20 years inside. As is routine in such matters the police will have informed CYFS and obviously he will have been removed from his children and his partner will be strongly advised to file for immediate separation and divorce will sole custody.

      And whatever the outcome of the police & employment investigation, he’ll go straight to the top of Crusher’s “Do not Employ” list. This is precisely the kind of person that list is designed to catch.

      It’s not: do not work for the government again, or do not work in NZ again – it’s do no work anywhere ever again – or anywhere anyone can Google.

  • Boris

    Looking forward to the change in his Linkedin status….

  • Cadwallader

    His punishment ought include Kim Dotcom squatting on him.

    • AngryTory

      Immediate dismissal, divorce, complete loss of custody of his kids, on the “do not employ” list and up to 20 years inside.

      Whale doesn’t fuck about.

      • Bunswalla

        Yes, we all agree. He should be shot through the head and asked to leave the country.

        Nothing’s too harsh for these evil scum, they should be rounded up like cattle and shot like vermin. Hanging’s too good for ’em, I say!

  • AJ

    Well done Whale. You are truly an asset to NZ

  • kevin

    Does anyone else think that gall was trying impress the tubby german guy hoping to score a job with MegaUpLoad?
    gall will become a leper within the IT trade I suspect. As in, ‘can’t be trusted’… and ‘doesn’t think straight’.

    • AngryTory

      He’ll be straight to the top of the “Do not employ” list.

      And CYFS will be asking him about his kids.

  • mike

    A win for the WO Army!

  • rightoverlabour

    Brilliant. Fucking wanker.

  • pukakidon

    Good to see a Government department taking positive action against these perverts hiding amongst the civil servants. A disgraceful excuse for a man!

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Whale Oil – I salute you. You are a legend. Thanks for bringing down this scumbag. Why are you not on National party list? Nobody can take you on in the parliament.

    • All_on_Red

      He should stand in Epsom. That would be funny.

      • andrew carrot

        What would Mr Goldsmith say about that?

        • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

          Goldsmith bro is National’s sacrificial goat….

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        I would give Whale bro, a top 10 list placing…he deserves that. He has single handedly exposed so many scumbags…..

    • AngryTory

      Whale should be on his own damn list. He’s NZ’s Beppe Grillo – fuck NZ would be far better of if Whale held the balance of power for the next John Key government!

      we’d finally be rid of Unions in NZ – and thus Labour – overnight

  • kehua

    Another on the `Wall“ Cam, I think with this jerk and the `Local Body wannabee/never was exposures` you may need to extend the Trophy room. All power to the Blog.

  • BR

    If only the rest of DOC could be similarly disestablished.


  • Super_Guest

    How long before he unions up? Public sector employee and all.

    • AngryTory

      Doesn’t matter. The unions aren’t going to be able to do anything.

      The penalty is 20 years to life plus obviously being the very top of Crusher’s “do not employ” list – against which there is no appeal whatsoever.

      The only problem is that he’s still allowed benefits.

  • AngryTOry


    Well done whale!

    That’s two done, something like 300,000 to go!

    GIven he has kids – he calls himself a “father” – shouldn’t this also go to CYFS. And he needs to go straight onto Crushers “unemployable” list.

  • BR

    The bad news is that we taxpayers will have to pay him the dole.

    The good news is that we won’t have to pay him as much as before.


  • Jonathan Pull

    I’m going to cop a lot of flak over this, I’m going to play devils advocate….

    He NEVER mentioned rape, angry tory can bleat on about it all he likes, but he used the word “fuck”. Fuck does not instantly refer to rape. Im not defending the guy in the sense that there shouldn’t be consequences but morons like Angry tory suggesting that he was suggesting outright rape are pathetic and stupid.

    Plenty of people have used sex tapes for black mail or for other less than desirable reasons in the past and have not included rape ( and probably some that did of course)

    Is what Andrew Gall said wrong? Yes absolutely.
    Should he be punished by employer/authorities? Debatable, on work time? yes Private time? Freedom of speech/expression (as unpleasant as it may be).
    Did he at any time suggest someone RAPE John Keys daughter? No.

    • La la land

      News flash – when you are talking about a (presumably) man fucking a woman without her consent and then sending a video of it to her father – it’s rape.

      • hamishnevet

        I think the point he’s making is that there is no mention of ‘rape’ in the original tweet. Just because he says ‘f*ck her’ doesn’t mean it won’t be consensual.
        But don’t get me wrong either… f*ck that dude for tweeting something so repulsive to begin with. He deserves what he gets.

        • La la land

          I understand that but it’s pretty obvious that a woman would never consent to this “suggestion” hence he says you need “… to fuck her”. To me there is nothing that speaks of consensual sex in this idea.

    • emjayblue

      Fuck does not instantly refer to rape. But even putting aside the issue of whether purposely instigating and secretly filming a sexual encounter for the express purpose of using that video as a weapon against your partner’s family thereby calls the validity of their consent into question, the inference in Gall’s statement was pretty clear (obviously not to you, but whatever). Look at it this way: was what the US gvt did to MegaUpload consensual?

    • Harvey Wilson

      I disagree. The inference of rape is there for all to see. For those of you who need proof have another look at his pic. He is a fat fuck public servant loser. She is a young attractive wealthy art student in Paris. How’s he gonna get her in the sack willingly. What, is he gonna tweet her “Hi Steph, you don’t know me but I’m a useless fat fuck and I hate ur old man. Let’s hook up ” ??? Therefore any sexual encounter between the two would either be rape or fantasy.

      Also, he works for the government, of which JK is currently the head honcho. It might be different in the public service but I know that if I tweeted to the world that I was prepared to fuck the boss’s daughter and send him photos, he would make immediate arrangements for the relocation of my ass, and he’d probably hit me.

  • ducky

    karma…what he wish for will come around to bite him. ha ha. can’t stop laughing…..

  • Zoe

    There are thousands agains the GCSB bill, Andrew did not say rape his daughter nor did he imply it. Do you not realise that by you going on your so called crusade, you have, infact, potentially ruined someones life. Did you ever stop to think that maybe he had kids and a partner to support? You must feel so tough sitting behind the keys of your keyboard. If you came across him, or anyone, who said anything on the street you wouldn’t have the nerve to approach them about it. How about you go and look into his kids eyes and explain to them why their dad, who has worked hard for years, is now on a benefit.
    John Key rapes thousands of New Zealanders everyday, building his bank balance instead of building our nation. He ignores the masses for his own agenda and blackmails other politicans so that he and his bum buddies can all end up better off.
    And, no, I do not know Andrew Gall, I simply feel sorry for a guy who’s had his whole life turned upside down over one little comment that has been taken out of context.
    Get a life Cameron Coward Slater

    • Refn8tor

      So did John Key rape you, Zoe? Or anybody you know? Have you ever met somebody who REALLY was raped? Idiot. As for Andrew Gall, do you think he would have had the nerve to approach John Key on the street and say what he said? He’s a victim of his own stupidity and you can’t blame others for that. The only one who needs to look into his kid’s eyes is Andrew Gall as he explains why he pissed it all away for a fat German con man.

  • Troll

    The only words that comes to mind about all this is “internet Troll” get a life Whaleoil, there is no suggestion of raping anyones daughter made by Mr Gall.
    All you are doing is trying to ruin a mans life over a stupid tweet he should have known better to make, and in hindsight id say he realises his stupidity.
    Give the man a break
