Some eight days after he got elected Christchurch mayor, Sideshow Bob is yet to reveal who financially backed his election campaign.
Last Wednesday he told the Christchurch Star that 'receipts were still being collected by his campaign manager.' Apparently once they are all 'collated' Sideshow will file his election return with the chief electoral officer.
Clearly there are a lot of 'receipts' out there to be gathered, because Sideshow is still no closer to filing that election return.
Of course it remains to be seen whether the list of financial backers will be a full and frank one, or whether some backers will remain anonymous.
