Firstly remember this quote:
When NZ First leader Winston Peters was asked in July if the party was funded by a trust that sometimes paid party bills, he said through a spokesman it was “a lie”.
Now read the latest details:
- $50,000 donation in 2005
- $17,000 of NZ First bills paid in 2005
- $87,648 of NZ First bills paid in 2006
- $80,000 donation in 2007
The Spencer Trust says it has paid $234,000 to or on behlf of NZ First since 2005. And during that time NZ First has filed three nil donations returns.
Helen presumably still says it was an innocent administrative error.
