Who employs NZ First staffer?

Further to the story two post earlier of the Maori Party being heavied to vote against censuring Winston Peters, I have a question about this from Pita Sharples:

Dr Sharples said he was not only taken aback by the personal attack from Winston Peters, but was disappointed at the personal lobbying by a NZ First staffer and a government Minister over the past weekend to influence the Maori Party’s decision prior to the vote.

Is the NZ First staffer employed by the party or parliamentary services?

If it’s the the former, it was unethical. If it’s the latter it was unethical and s/he has stepped well over the line between working for an MP and doing political work for a  party which no parliamentary services employee should ever cross.

    PDM – but if he’s paid by the tax payer he’s definitely not supposed to be doing political dirty work.
