Should Nick Smith resign or be stood down for writing his letter of support for Bronwyn Pullar?
Dr Smith wrote Ms Pullar a letter testifying that she was fit and healthy before having her cycling accident, which she was in the process of claiming from ACC over. The ACC Minister at the time has admitted using ministerial headed paper to write the letter for the former National Party activist and volunteer.
In a bizarre coincidence, Ms Pullar was mistakenly sent the details 6752 ACC clients. The subsequent investigation is what has brought her case to light, as ACC accused Ms Pullar of threatening to take the client info to the media if they didn't guarantee her ACC benefit for two years.
Should Nick Smith be gone?
