How unsurprising

Former National Party chief whip Jami-Lee Ross is one of the four people charged over National's multiple fraudulent donations. How unsurprising. Meanwhile, just days ago National leader Simon Bridges was trying to pretend the charges were nothing to do with his party. Yeah, right. When your chief whip effectively publicly confesses to money laundering for the party, and tells you about it, its hard to look clean. Sure, Bridges hasn't been charged, because he has no legal responsibility for donations. But its clear that his party was a knowing party to these dealings, and voters should hold them responsible for that.
