The serious allegations made against National leader Simon Bridges by former National MP Jami-Lee Ross on Tuesday have shocked the nation.
He accused his former boss of electoral fraud in a press conference, calling him a "corrupt politician". Mr Bridges responded with his own press conference, defending himself and vehemently denying the accusations.
The fallout from the political scandal rolled into another day with Mr Ross making a police complaint against Mr Bridges - and releasing audio of a secretly-recorded conversation between the two.
