Auckland Council chief executive Doug McKay has confirmed
that an independent review will be held into the Len Brown sex
In a brief statement issued late this afternoon, Mr McKay
said the Auckland Mayor has no council credit card and all
invoices and payments from the mayoral budget are checked and
approved by the chief of staff.
"I have received an assurance from both the Mayor and his
chief of staff that no mayoral office funds were used in
relation to the Mayor's relationship with Ms Chuang.
"However, I have agreed to independently review this to
confirm that is the case.''
