New Zealand has its own Weiner: Dodgy LBP Paul Findlay

As Local Body politicians go, we’ve seen our share of dodgy ones.  Dodgy with property, dodgy with money.  But until now, dodgy with sex hasn’t been exposed in public.

It was only time, really, before we had our own Anthony Weiner “SXTing” incident.

Let me introduce Paul Findlay who is standing for the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board in Christchurch under the The People’s Choice – Labour ticket.

Now Paul is single, 27, with no children

But he does have a phone.  And spare time on his hands.

We left Paul a message and he was good enough to phone us back.  He told us he was quite open about his online life, but he repeatedly stressed he has only ever had sex with legal adults in the real world.

Well, the voters in the Hagley-Ferrymead area in Christchurch can now take that into account when they vote for people they want to represent them on their local Community Board.

The question is:  Will Paul Findlay be The People’s Choice?

When Paul said he wanted to “stand for the board to give back to the community“, is this what he had in mind?

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
