The Serious Fraud Office has laid charges against two people over the NZ First Foundation donations scandal, but Winston Peters says his party has been “exonerated”.
The two people were charged with “obtaining by deception” on September 23 in the electoral funding case, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said in a statement on Tuesday.
The SFO would not name those charged, but said neither were Cabinet ministers, sitting MPs, candidates or staff member in the upcoming election, or current members of the NZ First party.
…does anyone care any more?
NZ First is polling 1%, they are bleeding out support and while Winston will try and spin this as some grand conspiracy against him blah blah blah – no one is listening any longer.
NZ First are gone this election the SFO are merely the second to last chapter.
