Len Brown should be held to the same standards the Navy holds their officers

Len Brown thinks he can struggle on as Mayor…ignoring the clear issues with ethics and judgement.

A similar case has just concluded with a Navy officer being sacked for his role in a power play affair…entirely similar in many respects to the actions of Mayor Len Brown.

Disgraced high-ranking navy officer Commodore Kevin Keat has been dismissed from the Defence Force.

Delivering sentence at a court martial today Chief Judge Chris Hodson, QC, said the role Keat had held, assistant chief personnel, was one of the most important in the force. Keat had been deceitful throughout about the nature, extent, and origins of the relationship with a civilian subordinate.

Keat, 55, and married, had started a sexual relationship with the woman in 2008.  

He said it was only casual and ended in 2010. She said it continued through to last December.

The five charges Keat was found guilty of relate to his failure to disclose a sexual relationship with the woman, failing to end the relationship, lying about it when he was asked, and using threatening language to the woman.

Position of power over the woman…check, failure to disclose relationship when issuing references…check, threats about revealing the relationship…check.

Len Brown professes to love the city…he should resign if he does…the reality is he gets off on the power.
