The anti-MMP lobby has made it’s first major public gaffe. They have proudly listed white supremacist Alex Fogerty amongst their founding members.
Of course, they’ve done nothing illegal here. All they have done is draw attention to one group looking to benefit from a less diverse parliament. Many of the other backers are the same names you would expect to see behind National and Act party campaigns.
The Anti-MMP folk have done a rapid back-pedal, deleted Fogerty’s name from their website and forced him to withdraw from membership. Here’s a cached version of the website, before Fogerty’s name was removed.
More shocking for me was to find that this same white supremacist, Alex Fogerty, is friends with Dunedin North National candidate Michael Woodhouse. That may take some explaining.
