Damien O'Connor's ministerial future hangs by a thread

Prison officer’s rugby jaunt ‘inappropriate’ – 08 Sep 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Damien O’Connor is in further hot water after it has been revealed that a prison officer suspended pending a corruption allegation has travelled with the Minister and the parliamentary rugby team. it gets even murkier for the minister in that the suspended prison officer’s wife just happens to be Damien O’Connor’s senior private secretary.

Finally O’Connor may be sacked but not for complete incompetence in his ministry but rather for yet another example of the kinds of collusion and corruption that continues to dog this most corrupt of governments.
