You would think that after getting outed as such a nasty, vicious piece of work in Dirty Politics, that Crusher would be scrambling to dial back the lies and manipulations.
Collins forced to backtrack over claim she’d been cleared
Under-pressure Justice Minister Judith Collins has had to backtrack this morning, after mistakenly saying the Privacy Commissioner had cleared her of wrong-doing in giving the details of a public servant to Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater.
But Privacy Commissioner John Edwards did no such thing, and suggested that he would investigate if the public servant in question, Internal Affairs official Simon Pleasants, laid a complaint.
…put aside the gleeful irony that Collins has the audacity to ‘champion’ cyber-bullying legislation, you would think that she would go out of her way to check her spin before blurting it out.
Is Judith lying about being cleared by the Privacy Commissioner to denigrate a public servant part of her last, last, last chance or is this a new last, last, last chance?
This train wreck is becoming a weeping infected wound that will drown National in an ocean of pus. Not pleasant imagery for sure, but accurate.
