Submission + - NZ Politician accused of hiding Kimdotcom's donations (

vik writes: "Kim Dotcom well remembers splitting an NZ$50,000 payment into two to help MP John Banks hide the money under the limit for anonymous donations. John Banks claims amnesia, and this is not the first bout of donation-induced memory loss he has suffered from. If convicted, he will lose his seat in NZ's Parliament. But NZ has recently been very flexible in changing its laws to suit big business, so the outcome is far from certain. Meanwhile, negotiations are beginning to free up the legitimate data trapped on Megaupload's site by the authorities."

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
