SFO launches Goff and Dalziel investigations

Stuff reports:

The Serious Fraud Office () has opened formal investigations into Christchurch and Auckland mayors and over their election expenses. …

Earlier on Wednesday Goff, who like Dalziel is a former Labour Cabinet minister, said he had “nothing to hide” and was not worried about the police referral.

“We’ve kept, to the best of our knowledge, within all of the rules,” Goff said. “The SFO haven’t contacted me – I’ve got no idea what it’s about.”

I find it difficult to believe he has no idea at all what it is about.

When John Banks was investigated for his local body donations, I recall many on the left demanding he resign (as an MP) even prior to any finding of guilt. So are they also demanding Goff and Dalziel resign or stand down?
