Illegal Use of Parliamentary Services Funds

Office of Stuart NashWith my post this morning I have already outed parliamentary services staff participating?in and organising Labour party business, they will not be the only ones. National doesn’t have a clean slate either, neither do the Greens or the Maori party.

This coming week this blog is going to expose a massive rort of taxpayer money. New Zealand political parties have hidden behind a very shabby system that allows them to use Parliamentary Services funds to campaign, which is against the rules but a nod here and a wink there means they have gotten away with murder.

For those who don?t know parliamentary services provide MPs with money for an electorate office, even if they are scum list MPs. This includes an allowance for staff, staff who are not permitted to work for the party or campaign while working for Parliamentary Services. The bad news for taxpayers is there has never been an audit because all parties do it.

This rort is going to be outed on this site. It has many angles:

  • Using Parliamentary Services staff to work on campaigns
  • Using Parliamentary Services staff to do party work
  • Using Parliamentary Services funded electorate offices for party work
  • Using Parliamentary Services funded electorate offices for campaign headquarters
  • Using Leaders Budgets for Campaigning, especially campaign web sites
  • Using MPs travel allowances to get MPs to campaign in strategic seats or in by elections
  • Using Parliamentary Services money to pay the mortgage on buildings the party owns so they can build a property portfolio that they can leverage against
  • Using Parliamentary Services money to pay the mortgage on buildings MPs own, so they can use tax payer money to fund an investment property

Politicians and political parties hide behind not being covered by the Official Information Act so think they wont get caught out.

They use shabby tactics like cronyism and doing deals with lobbyists to raise funds or have their expenses covered.

They will be caught out. Rorters will be exposed.Official complaints will be made, and will be continued to be made until there is a full independent audit of Parliamentary Services and how MPs spend its money.

Keep coming back for details. There will be updates several times a day.
