What the documents say about Dotcom's donation
Mon, 30 Apr 2012 7:00p.m.
On Friday night, Campbell Live broke the story of Kim Dotcom and his now highly controversial donation to the 2010 mayoral campaign of John Banks.
Now the cheques that prove Kim Dotcom did make that donation have surfaced, and show it was split into two payments, from the same account, on the same day.
There is now evidence John Banks did accept that helicopter ride out to lunch with Kim Dotcom at his Coatsville mansion.

Banks should retire, he obviously shouldnt be a MP if he cant remember rides in helicopters even, why do we allow these geriatric MPs to stand at all, out too pasture i say.

JB and JAMES J, voices of sensiblilty. My first reaction to this story was hang on how did those cheques appear. I certainly won't be banking ANZ. Second who gives a stuff if DOT COM gave any money to Banks. A total non issue in this world guys.

I'm honestly baffled anyone ever thought otherwise.
an honest politician is one who stays bought. unfortunately, most of them tend to forget that they were 'bought' by the public the moment they were voted in and started getting a paycheck which came out of the nation's taxes.

An anonymous cheque with "Megastuff" printed on it? Surely Banks has to go, his attempt to explain this is beyond belief. I deeply resent being regarded as stupid enough to believe his lies. What an offensive little person he is.

John Key is supporting John Banks as they are both Freemasons. "support each other no matter the concequences"
Politicians are corrupt,its how politics operates.But one must seem,or be seen to be upstanding.Actually etting caught out is a no no and one way out is to say "i do not recall" as this is saying neither yes nor no.Then its merely a matter of keeping chin up and bearing out the storm unless shock horror,actual solid evidence is produced. I think most realise now that john key is not the honest John that he was elected on but a slimebag and without any morals or integrity.

John Banks is a liar and a thief and he should be held accountable. Bet he would be popular in prison! John Key isnt looking much better, backing Banks. What a bad example being set by the leaders of our country

I wasn't defending Banks, both he and Len Brown are crooked was my point, and Shearer and Keys know it too.
