Peters Damned By Peers

From this morning's Herald

The privileges committee last night issued a damning decision against New Zealand First leader Winston Peters, finding that he knowingly filed a false return to Parliament when he failed to declare a $100,000 donation from billionaire Owen Glenn.
It has wide cross-party support, opposed only by Mr Peters' party and Labour.
The finding means the committee did not believe Mr Peters or his lawyer Brian Henry when they said Mr Peters found out about the 2005 donation only on July 18 this year.
