Whether he was heckled over the erection of affordable homes, or whether he was merely heckled over affording erections, either way it was a messy and undignified beginning to what promises to be a messy and undignified mayoralty.Our societal structure supports our right to create the life we want for ourselves, and to work towards our dreams and desires – in fact, we are positively encouraged to pursue our happiness.
After all, you’re researching rules on how to be the other woman – you absolutely know what you are getting into but have decided to do it anyway.
Without diving into the obvious contradictions here, if you’re going to be the other woman at least try to do it with a degree of honesty, consideration, and integrity and follow some simple affair rules. Assuming you’re of the mind that this is your life and you’re going to live it how you choose regardless of how your choices impact others, then telling you not to do it will fall on your very deaf ears.
-- Pursuing his own appointed and Council-paid advisors for sex, writing out a reference for a job at the Auckland Art Gallery to the woman he was trying to bed (even though she had been fired and convicted in court the previous year for hacking into her boss's email while at the Auckland Museum) and then proceeding to root her all over the Town Hall and quite probably in rooms comp'ed by hotels because he was Mayor - and these antics went on for most of his term of office - is apparently acceptable and excusable behaviour in the minds of Auckland's political establishment - certainly amongst the ranks of the credulous, hypocritical lefties.
The corruption is right in their face and they choose, for politics and nothing more, to look the other way.
You might not give two hoots about her but do the ethical thing, in this at least, and use a condom. Don’t weaponize kids or use them to try to curry favor or as convenient cover. Don’t spy, don’t stalk, don’t sit at the end of the drive craning your neck for a glimpse of him/them.
Using their children as a way to facilitate their father’s affair -even if it’s at his instigation- raises red flags about who you truly are. It’s the equivalent of a dog pissing on the carpet to mark its territory. This is her home, her life, her family, and her belongings with her husband.
An unamused deputy, Penny Hulse, looks on with pursed lips as Len signs up for another three years of - quite literally we know now - fucking over City Hall.
Peering down at the chain is the CEO who will have to run the code of conduct review into Len's corruption. NZ Herald: -- "I choose to put those matters where they belong and that's between myself, my wife and our family.
Len may be able to buy his way out of trouble by dishing out the goodies he's entitled to as the mayor, but this cover will only get him so far.
At the moment though far from being put on notice, Len has been given carte blanche to predate on whichever staff member he wants because he has been told by his supporting councillors that there will be no consequences.
(And refer to 2 – despite his declarations, you might not be his first or only affair.) In all of this, none of you deserve to contract an STI.
