On Wednesday evening at Backbenches various Young Labour members were very excited, telling everyone who would listen that Melissa Lee had parked her car on a disabled parking spot.
This was then given more publicity by Trevor Mallard who blogged at Red Alert:
Melissa in Disabled Park?
Just stupid. Can two days pass without her cocking up?
Remember she is John Key’s handpicked candidate.
Both lack judgement.
The post has now been struck through. Why?
Well Melissa did not park there. She took a taxi to Backbenches. The car was a supporter’s car. The supporter is disabled and had his disability card displayed in the windscreen – something that anyone could have easily checked. Egg. Face. Ouch.
The comments thread at Red Alert is quite amusing and worth a read.Tags: Melissa Lee, Red Alert, Trevor Mallard
