In the wake of a police whitewash over emails stolen from Don Brash's computer a few years back, probably by Labour insiders, we see the latest stoop in dirty politics by Labour happen in the Onehunga Electorate office of National MP Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga.
Former Labour MP Richard Northey has been seen by several witnesses "riffling through" Mr Lotu-Iiga's office.
Like the incident from a few years ago Northey has denied the accusations but similar to the incident a few years ago the finger can only be pointed in one direction.
Labour and its leader were unable to compete on level footing on policy last year before the general election and were left to wade in the filth and muck that they tried to scrape up on their opposition using taxpayer dosh but were left with the blowback on their own faces.
It seems they haven't learnt from that lesson and are repeating the same gutter politics this year in the Mt Albert Bye Election
Melissa Leigh, National's prospect for the Mt Albert Bye Election needs to keep her private papers private, least they fall into Labours hands, again.
