EFA Threatens Rodney's Wardrobe

5 comments | 12:16 pm | top |
"Act leader Rodney Hide's canary-yellow jacket has fallen foul of the Electoral Finance Act.  The Electoral Commission wrote to Mr Hide yesterday, saying that under the act the jacket might be an "election advertisement" and therefore required an authorising statement." - NZ Herald, 4 Nov 08

The article in the Herald continues... "The letter quoted the query as saying the garment that "contains the Act logo [and] the slogan 'the guts to do what's right' was worn in public by you in Newmarket and does not contain a promoter statement". The person who made the query also gave the commission a newspaper article about the jacket and two photos of Mr Hide wearing it."

Huh.  Now, who could that have been?
