Skulduggery or Corruption?

Skulduggery is such an awesome word, though seldom used.

I used it extensive to blog about the tricks some ratbags were using in the national party Rodney selection and now Tracy Watkins is using it in discussing the Labour leadership talent quest.

The gloves appear to be off behind the scenes, with claims and counter claims from each side over how many votes they have within the caucus and wider party and among union affiliates. 

There are also claims of skulduggery, with suggestions that offers of winnable list spots are being offered to electorate officials able to bring in local votes.

I know of at least one bribe from one camp if the votes can be delivered…a high list ranking for a decidedly nasty and unelectable candidate if they delivr the local votes for David Cunliffe.
