More self-inflicted wounds for National’s Mt Albert candidate Melissa Lee yesterday when an attempt at humour went wrong.
She had to explain that a suggestion to shoot the media was not hers – it was someone else answering email on her behalf (really, your honour, I wasn’t there).
Fortunately, a lamington stole the spotlight, but here’s the kicker:
The end of the debate didn’t end Ms Lee’s problems. She left the venue to find her car clamped in the carpark.
Her campaign might be looking for a couple more clamps before the wheels come off entirely.
