MPs’ credit card crunch II

The newspapers are onto this far quicker than I had imagined:
But Mr Ririnui said he reimbursed the spending within a week of his return home and used his ministerial credit card only because it was all he had on him at the time.
Just like Len Brown and his mayoral credit card:
when he bought the hi-fi system – it was “essential” to get it that day – he did not have his personal card with him.
If these people can’t run their own lives – when was the last time you left the house without at least an Eftpos card? – why should we trust them to run the country?

The Dim-Post looks at it this way.

UPDATE: Stuff has rolling coverage here. Hasn’t Chris Carter been a naughty boy.
