Dotcom Turns Dance Party Into Political Rally

Aug. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Kim Dotcom strides on stage at a Wellington nightclub, turning a late-night dance party into a political rally. The millionaire entrepreneur and convicted fraudster, whose Megaupload file-sharing site was shut down in 2012 after a police raid, is emerging as an unlikely power broker in NZ politics ahead of a Sept. 20 election. In a race that may be determined by just a few seats, Dotcom is exploiting a loophole in the nation’s electoral system in a bid to oust Prime Minister John Key from office. (Source: Bloomberg)
