So let me get this right.
Luigi Wewege knows for a while that Bevan Chuang has been involved in an illicit relationship with Len Brown.
Luigi Wewege is an aspiring right wing politician who is described as a key member of John Palino’s campaign and who is interestingly described as an acolyte of Simon Lusk. Despite his protestations to the contrary he has been in a relationship with Chuang and knows about her previous relationship with Brown.
Palino’s campaign manager is Cameron Slater’s father John Slater. Slater also knew about the Brown Chuang relationship.
Political activists are some of the biggest gossips that I know.
Yet Palino would have us believe that neither Wewege nor Slater senior nor junior told him about the Brown – Chuang relationship.
Update: The Herald is reporting that Palino met Chuang in a Mission Bay carpark for 90 minutes at night two days before news of the affair was made public. John Slater is reported as saying that they only talked about “general chit chat”. The report also states:
… Ms Chuang claims she and Mr Palino discussed revealing to Mr Brown information about the affair and whether he might resign, claiming poor health. (He suffered a major heart attack in May 2008.)
“This would give him an opportunity to be a hero and assured that … he did not lose any face, and yet allow him to move on to bigger and better political agendas,” she said.
At the end of the meeting she said “John Palino and I walked towards his car and [he] indicated that we cannot be seen together.”
Mr Palino is currently overseas.
