AUDIO: John Banks denies Dotcom "relationship", cites marriage as impediment

Friday 27th April, around 8pm and RadioLIVE reporter Frances Cook puts in a call to ACT Leader John Banks. Campbell Live had just broken the news that Kim Dotcom had donated to Banks' mayoral campaign, so RadioLIVE news were keen to speak to him.

Our reporter calls him back to clarify. Listen to what happened next here.
