Metiria Turei fights backlash after benefit fraud admission

From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 17 July 2017

Metiria Turei says it was her duty and responsibility as an Member of Parliament to tell her story about lying while on benefits. She says NZ should not have a welfare system that makes mothers choose between paying the rent or lying to Work and Income. "Nobody should ever have to lie to feed their kids."
