In the Herald yesterday, there was a half-page ad thanking Pansy Wong for her “significant contribution” to National’s coffers the country. John Campbell went in hunt of that contribution. Worth watching all the way through for Duncan Garner’s assessment. As a bonus, Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi gets his first media mention that isn’t about corruption.
You have to wonder who paid for that ad, the cost would be in the tens of thousands. One mate wondered if its come out of the $200,000 Wong raised for National in 2007 that (according to the NBR – behind paywall) is thought to be still held in an account controlled by Pansy and Sammy.
