Failed property developer Dave Henderson says he never contributed financially to any candidate in the 2007 local body elections - but he isn't telling the truth.
He donated money to the election campaign of Johnny Moore, the son of outgoing mayor Garry Moore.
In 2007 Johnny Moore stood for the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board but he wasn't elected. Henderson appears to have been the sole financial contributor to his campaign, donating $1250. (see Johnny Moore's election declaration above. Click on the image to bring up the larger version).
Yesterday Henderson e-mailed The Press to confirm he had not made any political donations to last October's local elections.
"The answer is no, I didn't. Actually, I didn't support anyone last election,' he said.
