Act MP already looking for work after the election
With the Act party very likely to disapear from Parliament in next weeks election, it appears Act MP Stephen Franks is looking for alternative employment.
He has offered to take up the legal case of Madeleine Flannagan, a former Christian Heritage Party candidate who has alleged she was assualted by Cabinet Minister Pete Hodgson during Prime Minister Helen Clark's recent visit to Otago University. Mrs Flannagan says Hodgson grabbed her by the arm to stop her from holding a paper placard saying "Speed Kills" behind Ms Clark when she was being interviewed for TV.
"ACT New Zealand justice spokesman and former lawyer Stephen Franks said he would see the incident through to the end even if it was unresolved before next week's election."
Is Stephen Franks attempting to restart his legal career?
