Wrong number

My, my. Isn't this Electoral Commission pizza grab making interesting stories. It seems the Labour Party Creative Accounting division may have over-stretched themselves. The membership figure of 48,609 given to the Commission has been ridiculed down to a more credible 10,000. Jonathan Milne also reckons the Maori Party membership is higher than Labour's. Too right. Blood is thicker than any union official.

Good on Whig for keeping it real with the tally. Idiot/Savant, does Labour's quintuple-counting inaccuracies count as fraud or is misleading the Commission and the public all par for the course?
