A proper campaign then

There are those that embrace negative politics and those that run screaming for their mummies if anyone dares tell the truth about politicians.

People are upset that Len Brown had the truth told about him…look at what happens in the US.

They know how to run proper campaigns.

It was a nasty election—the kind that would have made her grandmother proud. During the campaign, present-day photos circulated showing her opponent John Sweeney at a fraternity party; questions were raised about money he received from disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff; and a police report was leaked in which Sweeney’s wife said her husband was “knocking her around the house.” 

Sweeney tried unsuccessfully to paint Gillibrand as just another New York City carpetbagger, but Gillibrand’s connections to the area were evident. Many of the campaign staff spent the campaign living in Noonan’s old house. Gillibrand won with 53 percent of the vote.

Negative campaigns are by far the most truthful.

The rest is just window dressing. I really don’t know why people get upset about it all.

    They’re all troughing cunts. Shine the light and kick the shit out of them all I say.

    My favourite quote of all time “Any man that seeks a role in politics should be automatically disqualified from running”

    or words to that affect!

      Cant have that hazards, how would Len ever manage to attract another mistress if it weren’t for his title of Mayor.

    The last thing we want is the disgusting American style of politics here.

    Their country is a mess and you want to emulate that here??

    Go live there and wallow in the filth if that is what you want to become Whale. Because unless you didn’t notice, the kiwi public are not too fond of that sort of carry on.

      Really? The left have never been shy about howling to the media about a perceived personal wrong doing of a Right MP. aka Aaron Gilmore.

      However when the light shines on them it’s a different story isn’t it?
      Certain red headed faggots and aunties flats in Wellington spring to mind for example.

      What the kiwi public are not to fond of is the way the left in particular are so often seen as corrupt, mendacious, bullying, low moral, self righteous sleaze bags.

        Given that Brown is still the mayor, Whale’s attempts to remove him democratically through the media have backfired on him and those who put the Brown affair story out there are now seen as the villains in all this, so you keep on living in your made up world.

        The rest of us have said no thanks to this American sleaze method and moved on.
