Racist as well as sexist

Over on GBlog, Toad reports on more of ACT MP David Garrett's "colourful" antics - this time making racist comments to a Green Party staffer. Meanwhile Scoop's Gordon Campbell points out that Garrett's excuses for his misbehaviour - that he's a former oil rig worker - don't wash: after a fifteen year career as an employment lawyer, he knows exactly how unacceptable sexual harassment is. The guy is simply a racist, sexist bigot. ACT should be ashamed to have him in their party, let alone their caucus.
