New Zealand politician defends blue movie claim
Friday 11 June 2010
Former government ministers used their official credit cards to buy pornographic films, Bollinger champagne and flowers and even charter an aircraft.
The first public viewing of more than 7,000 pages of credit card expenses booked by Labour ministers from 2003 to 2008 revealed hundreds of purchases outside the rules.
Shane Jones, who was Housing Minister, admitted using his card to pay for adult movies. "I'm a red-blooded adult," he said. "It shouldn't have happened, it has happened, it doesn't make me feel particularly worthy – but I'm not going to hide from it."
