Rorts galore continue...

Home Paddock looks at the rorts by Dunne and Anderton as one man vanities.

Kiwiblog looks at the rorts in accommodation.

Meanwhile the corrupt convicted criminal ex-MP looks set to retain his Super payout and no doubt, travel perks.

Assuming he will be in the pre-1992 Government Super Fund, it appears that there is no misconduct clause for honourable members. The Public Service and Armed Forces have a misconduct clause where their super is forfeited on conduct unbecoming ie, picking your nose the wrong way.

Nothing that I found under the super law for MPs being less than honourable though. I expect MPs protecting their patch will have written out such a clause a long time ago.

Rorting bastards.
