ACT president Chris Simmons drops his party's leader and only MP in it by saying, unequivocally, he had discussed the "split the $50k into two" approach to the Dotcom donation with John Banks.
Later he calls back and attempts to take it all back. Mr Banks never said such a thing, nor was it even discussed.
The selective amnesia is spreading.
That battered and torn thing on the floor, that's what remains of the ACT party's credibility. That's the argument that's so powerful, it's not necessary to talk about it
