What else do David Clendon and Kennedy Graham know?

David Clendon and Kennedy Graham's resignations should be welcomed but now they need to tell Green voters everything they know about Metiria Turei and her lies to government and the public, rather than letting details drip-feed out over months as the official investigation into her continues, says ACT Leader David Seymour.

“Metiria should have come clean with the full story on day one of her confession. Instead, she’s let down her MPs and her party. Two senior, respected MPs have resigned over her continuing dishonesty, and her hapless co-leader James Shaw is despatched to defend the indefensible while she hides behind him. She needs to front up and come clean with the full truth now, not wait for investigators and journalists to pry details out day by day and week by week.

“Sadly, Metiria Turei’s protracted ego trip has let down the very people who count on the Greens to stand for fairness and decency. Honest beneficiaries, solo mothers, and normal Green Party supporters have now been tarred with Metiria’s theft and deception.”
