Strike Two

July 17th, 2014 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

The Herald reported:

National Party MP has given up her parliamentary charge card after she used it to pay for a personal trip to Australia.

“I went to Australia. It was travel only and way outside Parliamentary Service guidelines,” she told Fairfax Media.

She said the trip over Christmas last year and other questionable spending, including refreshments for a hui on a marae, had cost about $200, which she has since repaid.

“Of course it’s absolutely no excuse for not knowing the Speaker’s rulings. It is my responsibility and I didn’t do it.” …

Earlier this year Ms Hauiti was caught out breaking Parliament’s rules by employing her civil union spouse in her electorate office.

The rules are not obscure. Parliamentary Service provide a facility where you can check expenditure and appointments. One can forgive one transgression as a beginner’s mistake, but a second one can’t be treated so benignly.

Also just common sense should tell you that you don’t charge a trip to Australia to Parliament. You actually need the permission of the Whips to travel overseas on official business.

    You just cannot get rid of her. If you do, you will be accused of Maori or lesbian bashing. Dealing with Aaron Gilmore was easy. No one is going to argue if you cut ties with an arrogant white heterosexual male. Although Gilmore might still be there if he immediately manned up, apologised and admitted that he was stupid and wrong. I guess that is the big difference between these two.

    And this is the replacement for Aaron Gilmore, who the MSM and then National hounded out of Parliament for what was the initially relatively minor transgression of behaving like a big-headed lout when he was pissed at a private dinner. The media reported that Gilmore was leaving the House “in disgrace”.

    John Key joined the MSM lynch mob, as this report from the time shows:

    Following Gilmore’s assertion today he wouldn’t resign, Key said the “vast majority” of Kiwis did not care about the embattled MP.

    “I’ve genuinely tried to get some answers, I’ve genuinely tried to support him and I made it quite clear that if I couldn’t reconcile that, I saw that as serious.”

    Key said this was why he escalated the situation to the party president yesterday.

    Earlier today he had stepped up pressure on Gilmore noting each time he speaks with him the story “either changes or is different”.

    Another MSM report from the time:

    The National Party has recruited a lesbian, Maori, former-Grassroots Labour supporter who is expected to take a top list spot and seat in Parliament.

    Claudette Hauiti, who is in a civil union and raising a child with her partner, admits she “ticks all the boxes” on National’s representation scale.

    Ms Hauiti says “I’m not made up of one particular thing, I’m made up of many things….my iwitanga…I’m also an urban Maori, I’m also a business woman…I’m also a mother and all those things help build a very strong character for the National Party”.

    “I’ve had an excellent run to become the candidate for Mangere. I’ve had exceptional support,” she says.

    National is struggling to shake its reputation as a boys’ club with only 16 of its 57 MPs being female.

    Surely you don’t have to be very bright to know that a Parliamentary card (or whatever it is) would only be used for business relating to her Government position. Personal travel is just that – personal and would be paid for out of your own purse. It was just another rort by these people who just can’t keep their hands out of other people’s pockets when the opportunity is out there right in front of you – for the taking in their little minds. It’s how their minds work. It is rather like an epidemic when you think of all the Trusts and other institutions that have been fleeced by ‘these people’.

    Of course she was honest in fronting up, because she was caught wasn’t she.!! One wonders if she would ever have fronted if she hadn’t been pinged. I don’t give her any kudos for fronting up. She shouldn’t have done it in the first place. Get rid of her – she’s untrustworthy.

    I posted this on GD yesterday….It all remains true…

    Hauiti’s excuses frankly are total bullshit…and it shows from the way her answers are all over the place…”Of course the trip was private…”… “ah well actually maybe it wasn’t because I met Maori in Australia who are on the electoral roll”…

    She also tries to shift at least some of the blame onto her EA’s (Parliaments version of PA’s…for some reason she seems to have two of them) which is outrageous…If the EA was asked if this trip was kosher and she or he didn’t know, they would have immediately called Parliamentary Services and asked…On the very rare occasions my EA didn’t know something, she would immediately start calling people until she could give me the definitive answer…usually within minutes.

    This sort of expense fiddling is normally the sort of thing lefties do…remember Phillida Bunkle and her two places of residence for different purposes…and He Who is Protected and the book of taxi chits…Tuku and his underpants…

    As others have said, perhaps this is what you get when selections are made to fill some unofficial quota rather than on merit…

    ..And well done for posting this DPF…it must very very puzzling for Standard readers…Can you imagine a similar post appearing there if it was a Labour MP??? Not a snowball’s chance…

    Gilmore lost his job not for being an arsehole but for the far more serious crime of lying to John Key about it.

    Only when his “mate” dobbed him was he finished.

    Here’s an extract from an NBR report in May of last year:

    At a press conference at Parliament this morning, a tearful Aaron Gilmore admitted he was a “bully” and a “dickhead” but denies the central accusation of a fellow diner.

    At a Hamner Springs restaurant during a National Party regional conference, the Christchurch-based list MP was said to have threatened to have the Prime Minister’s office sack a barman if he was not served another drink.

    He denied the allegation when questioned by John Key’s chief-of-staff – leading to accusations he was also a liar.

    If this was Gilmore’s lie – over an incident when he was pissed at a private function – it was fairly minor compared with fucking around with taxpayer funds. In my view it was of lesser moral transgression than those of some relatively recent politicians of both Labour and National and who remained MPs.

    Finally, Alan, in your post, on what do you base your view that the person who “dobbed him in” was a “mate” of Gilmore?

    Gilmore doesn’t impress as political material, but the MSM’s lynching of him was wrong.

    All of that said, I agree it was far from a hanging offence…the media literally chased the poor bastard like a pack of hounds after a fox…I opined at the time, and I stand by what I said, that sooner or later they will drive some poor sod to suicide…and then film the funeral..

    How the woman was ever considered suitably qualified to be on the National Party list escapes me . . .

    On second thoughts it doesn’t. Hauiti is a classic example of the victory of optics over substance. Being a female, mouldi and a lesbian was too much of an opportunity for the members of National’s “progressive” organizing committees to resist . . she was a great opportunity to demonstrate what an “inclusive”, “diverse”, “broad church” the contemporary National party is.

    …when Ms Hauiti made her first “mistake…”

    And that’s the real point – the word in quotes.

    Parliamentarians implicit claim even if they never say it, is they’re just way better than Joe and Jane Sixpack simply by virtue of standing. And frankly, they need to stand by that implicit claim, the parliamentarians need to enforce it as a non-partisan group and a transgressor with mens rea needs to resign straight away or be forced to. Regrettably the actual record is that a few notables including the author of that quote, have resigned straight away. Thus demonstrating they have integrity and understanding. The rest, the majority, haven’t, and the parliamentarians as a group have simply reshuffled their seats to accommodate the transgressor in their new position. And the media have done what the brave and astute Fourth Estate line of last defence has always done: moved onto the next breathlessly exciting story as if nothing ever happened.

    I reckon what should happen is when one of the parliamentarians does something like this, every single parliamentarian’s pay should be docked until every cent is repaid. Apparently, that’s the only thing that’s going to get their attention.

    How fricken weak is that argument ?

    That sad sick tactic has been found out.
    You need to find a new game.

    WTF?
    ‘Businesswoman’ my arse. Looks like she is just a former TV producer making low rating yet ‘worthy’ television for minorities courtesy of the tax payer, suckin on that good old teat. If National have to put people like this on their list then they have really lost their way.

    Sorry, buddy you’re quite right. You caught me playing the civilised, grown up, human being “game”. I’ll try to get back to being a divisive, mean, stereotyper from now on.

    its an idiot: where did anyone refer to Maori cannabilism? I mean we all know they were enthusiastic practitioners of it, but where is the reference to “that horrible practice” (to borrow from Prof. Paul Moon) on this thread??

    Claudette Hauiti claims affiliation to different Maori tribes, some of whom used to eat each
    other when they had a chance.

    I don’t blame cricko, s/he’s in the same class as igm, can’t control itself.

    NZ needs good people like Claudette representing them – who else can the intellectually retarded braindead duh-duh masses identify with in the House, huh ?

    What did dime say ? Jobs for the bros – never truer than Clawdebt trying to set up her Mrs with a desk job. To be fair – you’d wonder if it was brown paint if she didn’t try it on – whoaaaaaaaa !!!!!
