Delicate Balancing Act Needed Over Glenn

How is Owen Glenn going to react to the news about what some Labour activists are saying about his memory, his drinking, and his attitude to Maori? Why even Michael Cullen said some unkind thinks about Owen this week. Will he be just as willing to reach for the cheque book now?

It seems the answer is no. This from the Sunday Star Times

Labour has been back asking controversial party donor Owen Glenn for more money despite a storm of controversy over earlier donations by the expatriate Monaco businessman.
Labour Party president Mike Williams yesterday confirmed he had met with Glenn within the past few months, but had been unsucccesful in raising more money.
