One Liu donation confirmed

The Herald reports:

A donation from to a rowing club linked to a former Labour Cabinet minister has been confirmed.

Duncan Barr, the president of the Hawke’s Bay Rowing Club, said today the millionaire businessman gave $2000 in 2007, which backs up a signed statement from Liu.

Labour have been basically suggesting Liu is mistaken or a liar. They should be very worried that this minor donation has been confirmed, because if he is correct on a $2,000 donation, it is unlikely he’s got around a $100,000 donation.

Mr Barr said the club purchased new rowing blades and said Liu was introduced to the club by , the then Minister for Internal Affairs, whose daughter was a club member.

They were obviously quite close.
