No Shame Brown sworn in to jeers from protestors

No Shame Len Brown was sworn in last night amid jeers from protestors.

He also shamelessly paraded his wife and professed his love for her.

He did that via text message to Bevan Chuang on Christmas once too…so not sure what that all means.

Len Brown was tonight officially sworn in as Auckland’s mayor for a second term, as cries from protesters interrupted his opening speech.

Yells of “shame” and “you sold our people out” rang out as  Brown spoke to the inaugural meeting of the new council in the Auckland Town Hall. 

He made no reference to his affair with 32-year-old Bevan Chuang, which has dogged him since his re-election as mayor just over two weeks ago.

He thanked his wife, Shan Inglis, for standing by him for the past three years – his first term as mayor. He told Inglis, who was at the meeting with their daughter Sam, that he loved her.

Six new councillors made their maiden speeches later in the evening. None made mention of the affair.

There he was in his Maori cloak with other maori fawning all over him ignoring his shame in the Ngati Whatua room.

This mayor is a disgrace, and his fall will be even more spectacular now he has been sworn in.
