PM John Key’s text message deleting examined
Dirty Politics has sparked another official probe – this time by the guardian of the country’s public records.
Chief archivist Marilyn Little has agreed to a call from Green MP James Shaw to investigate Prime Minister John Key for deleting text messages.
The practice came to light last month amid a furore about Key’s messages to attack blogger Cameron Slater. Key says he destroys text messages in case his phone is lost.
If the Prime Minister is at a loss to account for text messages he is sent, perhaps the Chief archivist should contact Cameron Slater and ask for all his copies, including the tape recordings he has of John Key’s phone calls?
