What excuse will Len Brown use this time?

With the EY report due to be released publicly anytime soon, Len Brown must be preparing his grovelling excuses.

Last time he was busted this is what he said:

Mr Brown said he was apologising for sloppy record-keeping and said he wished he had never been given a council credit card.

He said if he had a weakness it was spending too much time out of his office and not enough time in his office on administration.

He said he would ask the auditor-general to investigate his expenses and if he won the Auckland mayoralty his integrity would never again be questioned.

It certainly looks like he hasn’t learned at all. He has been out of control for sometime. 

The only difference this time is it is sloppy seconds that have got him on trouble.

He certainly hasn’t addressed his stated weakness, spending far too much time in hotels and the Ngati Whatua Room.

To cap it all off his integrity is very much in question. He has lied in LGOIMA request answers, he covered up a trip to Hong Kong, he conducted an illicit affair for two years, and hasn’t learned a single thing.

Pants Down Brown must go.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
