Len Brown will be pleased he isn’t in the Navy!

It looks like the Navy takes rooting of the underlings very seriously, much more seriously than Len Brown does.

A senior navy officer has been found guilty of charges relating to a relationship with a subordinate at a Court Martial.

Commodore Kevin Keat, 55, had denied eight charges relating to offences under the Armed Forces Discipline Act.

The counts cover breaching orders and other acts likely to prejudice discipline or discredit the service.

A Court Martial, which ended today, Commodore Keat was found guilty of five of the eight charges, Radio New Zealand reported.

Interim suppression orders prevented publishing some details including the extent of the affair and the complainant’s name.

The woman at the centre of the trial alleged the Commodore exercised power and control over her employment conditions when she tried to end their affair after several years. 

Her accusations include bullying, harassment, stalking and threats to end her career.

The relationship apparently soured after she refused to any longer keep from declaring it on her security clearance form.

Gee, sounds very like Mr Mayor doesn’t it.

Sounds like the “Brown Standard” of public wouldn’t cut it in the Navy.

As the news piles into the tipline, and the  media starts uncovering more serious allegation Mayor Len Brown is going to have to make a serious decision shortly…at the end of the day all the spin about a sting, a conspiracy and plt to unseat the mayor matters not a bit.

Simply put no one but Len Brown made the decision to conduct a two year affair with a council employee and contractor.

No one but Len Brown made the decision to issue a reference and act as referee for a job for his mistress.

No one but Len Brown made the decision to appoint his mistress to the Ethnic Affairs board.

No one but Len Brown sent those lewd texts.

No one but Len Brown brought his mistress gifts of lingerie, perfume and bizarrely sun block,

No one but Len Brown made the decision to masturbate in his ofice during office hours.

No one but Len Brown made the decision to disrespect Maori by running one up his mistress in the Ngati Whatua room.

No one but Len Brown used his position as Mayor to take advantage of complimentary rooms at swanky 5 star hotels in order to entertain his mistress.

No one but Len Brown caused embarrassment for his wife and daughters.

The only person responsible for all of this grief is Len Brown. He must resign.
