Parliamentary scandals

As there is no existing page, I plan to set up a permanent page listing all the significant parliamentary , building on the list I did for the Herald. The definition of significant in subjective but as a general guideline I would take it as a resignation occurred or there was some sort of external investigation. What I hope to do is have a table that lists:

  • MP//s involved
  • Alleged wrong-doing
  • Date
  • Outcome

Here’s the ones I have to date:

  • Colin Moyle, Moyle Affair 1977
  • Duncan Macintyre and one other, Marginal Loans Board Affair 1980
  • Keith Allen, reported fictitious assault, 1984
  • Koro Wetere, Maori Loans affair, 1989
  • Denis Marshall, Cave Creek, 1990s
  • Neil Kirton, conflict of interest, 1997
  • Murray McCully, Tourism Board, 1999
  • Tuariki Delamere, conflict of interest, 1999
  • Helen Clark, paintergate
  • Dover Samuels, sex allegations, 2000
  • Dover Samuels, public urination, 2005
  • Phillida Bunkle, Marian Hobbs, accom allowances, 2000
  • David Parker, company returns 2004
  • Trevor Mallard, fighting, 2007
  • Darren Hughes, alleged assault, 2011
  • Lianne Dalziel, lying, 2000s
