Hone got the money but he kept most of it in his pocket

Hone - At The Trough

In his return to the Electoral Commission Mr Harawira declared he received $105,000 in donations and spent just under $23,000.

Two of Mr Harawira’s fellow Mana candidates, Annette Sykes and Te Hamua Nikora, also did well out of donations, receiving $60,000 each.

Mr Harawira lost the Tai Tokerau seat to Labour’s Kelvin Davis in September’s election and his party failed to make it into Parliament.

I’m sure there is nothing unusual about Hone Harawira, Annette Sykes and Te Hamua Nikora getting large amounts of donations. ? There is nothing unusual about them being part of the Mana “movement”.

Either: ?Kim Dotcom was playing Santa. ?Or: ?The people up North are lot richer than they let on.
