The Herald reports:
The review into Len Brown’s extramarital affair with council adviser Bevan Chuang uncovered a large number of telephone calls and text messages the Auckland mayor made to five unidentified numbers.
Last night, Mr Brown declined to identify the numbers, saying the information was not held by him and details of his phone calls were private to him.
Except ratepayers paid for them.
Papers released under the Official Information Act show that of the 25 telephone numbers with the highest frequency of calls and text messages from Mr Brown, six could not be attributed by the council to a person or company. …
The council paid $4538.50 for the mayor’s mobile phone calls and texts over the three-year period.
