Pledge card funding questioned

In the wake of Labour trying to trip National, with memos allegedly written 12 months ago - Brash has turned the gun onto his accusers.

Brash questioned why taxpayers have funded Labour's wallet-sized pledge card. The budget for these cards comes from Clark's leaders fund, as confirmed by the Prime Minister's office - who confirmed Labour's pledge card was paid for by the party's "taxpayer funded" leaders' fund.

Cullen says the use is within the rules, despite electoral law prohibiting money being used for electioneering. I'll bet it is not. Cullen/Clark don't have misery guts Wilson to run interference this time around.
