countdown to the truth -

The electoral commission are giving NZ First a bit more time to get there stories straight
NZ Herald has more details .

New Zealand First has been given a last chance to file accurate donations returns with the Electoral Commission and give a detailed explanation as to why it broke electoral law.
The commission's decision follows hard on the heels of police announcing they would launch a formal inquiry into the party's 2007 donation return.
The commission met this afternoon and considered correspondence from the party about its annual donation returns for 2005, 2006 and 2007.
"The commission is requiring NZ First to produce promised amended party donation returns for the three years and their accompanying auditor's report no later than Tuesday, September 30," the commission said in a statement.
"The commission is unable to release the correspondence or further options for action under consideration, nor comment further."

Methinks the NZ First people will all have noses like Pinnochio by then.

Hooton has some stern words to say on the electoral commission faffing around as well
