Has Rudman outed Complainant A?

June 10th, 2009 at 11:45 am by David Farrar

wrote in the Herald:

One was a married woman who had stood unsuccessfully for selection as a candidate for Labour Party nomination in last year’s election

Now that narrows it down massively from activist to candidate nominee, and makes it pretty easy for someone to use Google to make an educated guess.

Note I will delete comments that mention the likely name – or any name.

Incidentally, this makes it even worse for – if he was hitting on not just a Labour Party activist, but an actual candidate – that is damn reckless.

UPDATE: It is actually the combination of Goff’s comments on her appearance, and Rudmans column that makes identifying her fairly simple. So Phil has helped out her!

    “Worth is an idiot.”

    It is a disgrace that such an idiot was kept in at the expense of people like Stephen Franks.

    The National Party, that seeks popularity only by repeating the ideology of the opposition in a slightly different language, needs a complete clean out at the top.

    The muppet of a woman took her complaint to the muppet leader of the opposition and he failed to keep focus on the allegations and decided to use it as a political point scoring tool. Either that or it was always a point scoring exercise.

    oh dear, oh dear, oh dear

    surprisingly easy to find that only one labour female nominee fits the profile.

    Honey Trap anyone? Surely even Worth wouldnt be stupid enough to come onto a member of the opposition party if she wasnt playing along with him to see what she could extract, either in the form of work, or evidence to hang the silly prick by.

    Actually and on reflection, I suspect that Worth is stupid enough. Born to rule patrician – check. Very smart – check. Zero nouce – check. Bullet proof self regard – check. Arrogant Fool – check.

    The perfect target.

    Just lucky I guess that Labour didnt get pictures – assuming of course that they didnt.

    Fortunately Goff is as stupid as Worth and is coming across like a panty sniffer himself.

    Looking at the harrasment emails, Worth invited her for a swim, and asked her to bring him a tie back from a trip to Pakistan. IS THAT IT??

    Yup, thats clearly harrasment.

    Wonder what the other half of the text messages say – you know, the ones she texted him back with… funny how Goff isnt mentioning them.

    KiwiGreg asks:

    Didn’t the man have anything better to do?

    He’s a list MP, remember. By definition he represents no one, is therefore beholden to no one (other than his leader) and has no purpose whatsoever other than to make up the numbers amongst the automatons who vote “yay” or “nay” on the command of their political bosses (if they want to maintain their list ranking, that is).

    Yet more evidence that our system of representation needs an overhaul. When’s that going to happen, by the way? When more important constitutional issues are off Key’s agenda, like who Dick was trying to dick? Glad to know the PM, Cabinet and media all have their priorities right.

    DPF:

    She is potentially a victim here so I do not wish to cause her distress by identifying her

    There are no victims in this sorry story of sleaze, DPF. No one has behaved in a way that merits the slightest consideration whatsoever. I’m loathe to sound like a former PM, but it’s time to move on. If and when this woman wants to step out from behind Goff’s skirts with her accusations, let her. Meanwhile Worth has got his just desserts.

    This is fiddling (in every sense of the word) while Rome burns.

    These two texts are definately in response to a text sent by the women to Worth, the second in particular is most likely in response to the women asking Worth if he would like her to buy something for him. I find it hard to understand that someone who is being bombarded with offensive texts and objects to it, would then offer to purchase something for them.

    I wonder when the MSM are going to get off their collective arses and ask Goff to proove his allegations. I wont hold my breath.

    Sadly, the PM has yet to learn that nice guys finish last, even in NZ.

    Worth should have been ruthlessly dumped, instead of ‘resigning’ in Phase 1. Whatever he did to upset JK was clearly unforgiveable, and should have been dealt with accordingly.

    Then Complainant A would have been a witness for the prosecution, and for Worth to explain. Should have been End of Story – leave the rest to the police.

    But Phase 2, over a week now, has been a disaster. It started with Worth’s protestations of innocence, and we have since had a drip feed of confusion. The witchhunt of Complainant A, and no doubt eventual outing, are starting to look like victimization of a minor party who had little to do with the big blowup.

    But maybe a trawl through Worth’s ministerial appointments will throw up some interesting names….

    This revelation makes the honey-trap scenario much more plausible.

    Here is a very simple explanation of why the texts were deleted and the phone-calls were not recorded:

    1. The really vulgar texts never existed. That is just a fabrication. It can’t be proved they ever existed at all.
    2. The phone-calls were initially recorded. But Worth didn’t give up anything incriminating on those either. So, rather than put up evidence that was a total non-event, it was better to say the phone calls weren’t taped. Then a whole story could be invented about all the disgusting things that Worth had said to her.

    Here is a link to the Herald article about the fraud. It looks like she had involvement in it. So, her credibility is shot to shreds so far as I am concerned.

    A honey-trap. The best explanation available that fits the facts.

    Indeed Patrick, after all why would the sleazy Nats need any women or immigrants to vote for them!

    Compared to sleezy people who engage in honey traps? Married to people who have run immigration scams?

    Lets hear you denounce those…..

    Well done WhaleOil. Well done Guyon Espiner. Well done macdee for finding the link.

    Phil Goff – must try harder :-(

    Now, when is Phil Goff going to answer the question as to whether Whale’s Neelam Choudary and macdee’s Neelam Choudary are one and the same? Before Saturday, we hope!

    Er um guys.

    As Sonic says you should get a dictionary and read up and reflect.

    I am amazed at this debate. The complainant (whoever she is) wants to have a quiet chat with our PM to tell him what Worth has done. Goff puts in a quiet word of warning intending it is not acted upon.

    Worth has already been summarily dumped because of someone else’s complaint and a police investigation.

    So what do you think about the judgment of your beloved leader? Many of you seem to relish in the denigration of a woman who, whoever it is, obviously wants to remain private and merely express her concerns to the leader of our country.

    And your angle is?

    Nice try micky. But doesn’t strike you as a bit ironic that this woman is today active in Mt Albert trying to get Indians to vote for Phil Goff’s hand-picked candidate and friend? And all the while Phil Goff is trying to ramp up the pressure on Key? Sorry pal, his bluff has been called tonight.

    And?

    If during Budget week Goff got up in the house and accused Worth of offering government positions for sexual favours then you may have a story.

    He did not.

    Key sacked worth and publicised the fact that he had received this hitherto private complaint.

    Goff has been getting into Key because his handling of Worth has been so poor.

    Sorry guys but there is no conspiracy.

    Mickey you are unbelievable to continue with your standard-standard line on this. There was little doubt from the moment Goff started pushing this publicly that the woman’s identity would be revealed. There is no reasonable expectation for the complainant to meet with the PM, and his primary failings in this affair have been to have ever entertained the notion in the first place. He should always have said it wasn’t a matter for him to deal with personally, his staff should handle it.
    Goff and the woman clearly have no firm evidence and it is more and more looking like she has tried to set up a situation to embarass the government. Goff has not handled it well, and it beggars belief that he kept pushing it in the public arena while at the same time expecting her privacy to be maintained. FFS he himself was too scared to appear with Slater on Close-Up, how could he possibly think people like Slater would not dig up the dirt.
    What do I think of Key’s judgement? Poor – he should never have said as much as he did, he should always have left his staff to deal with Goff and this woman. He should learn when to shut up and when to delegate.
    What do I think of this woman’s attempt to have her cake and eat it by making the allegations and expecting not to have them scrutinised more closely? Foolish and highly suspicious, she isn’t looking like a victim except of her own making
    What do I think of Goff’s handling of the affair? If only it was BBQ weather.
    What do I think of the commentary from you, the standard-standard and similar blogs? To be expected – cry Victim loud enough and often enough and expect it to silence rational assessment.

    was it
    * Do you want to come swimming?
    or
    * How you getting on with the Goa purchase?
    or
    * Does that possibly mean you might be back [in India] in mid January with a discreet ITG group?

    Wasn’t that the text that she showed to her husband and asked what “xxx” means?

    If so, up til that moment it was all rather cordial wasn’t it? When would a woman who was aggrieved and harassed by another man in a predatory fashion as it is alleged Worth did, turn around and ask him what he wanted, assumedly as a gift from a family holiday in India?

    This is now laughable.

    Mike Williams little sojourn to Australia prior to the election is beginning to look like a major success compared to Goff’s attempts to discredit the Govt. He is shown in his true colours as a shrill muck raker who couldn’t organise a decent scandal if his life depended on it.
    Net net a great result for the Govt. They get rid of a complete waste of space and Labour is shown to be complicit in the whole affair. Presumably the same morons who advised Mike Williams re the H Fee are behind the machinations here.
    All I can say is long live Phil Goff as Labour Party leader. I can feel a right wing generation coming on…..

    So her husband, and a preferred candidate of the Labour Party were both involved in an Immigration Scam.

    This is becoming something of a norm in the Labour Party. Immigration = Money. Simple Formula, and think that the Police should now be involved to recover ALL the mails, txts, and voice tabs from their strange communications.

    As for Honey Trap 2, there is a lot more information coming down the tubes on this viper.

    Women under sexual duress always have breakfast with the perp. Tui Moment!

    Goff is looking more like a big girls blouse by the hour.

    Maybe his candidate for Mt Albert will turn out to be Universal Soldier. Yeah Right!

    Hopefully he won’t have been involved at all in the arms trade, or deniable operations with unregistered deniable operations.

    Blood Diamonds anyone?

    All this palaver about why Worth resigned if there were no impending police charges? Isn’t that the right thing do when drawn into a scandal? Step aside and take the bad tarnish off parliament? It’s the Westminster way.

    Has Worth got a partner?

    I ask because all the focus so far has been on this sensation yet a story of spending a night with another woman slowly boils away apparently under police scrutiny. Personal reason… like to sort out his relationship?

    Perhaps his partner has said she can’t trust him in a job where he travels? Perhaps that’s his reason?

    (I assume his partner is a ‘she’ because to date I haven’t known any homosexual men who expect complete monogamy).
