The 1 NEWS team discuss the potential aftermath for leader Simon Bridges once the investigation into the National Party leaker is released.
It comes after the Opposition leader launched an investigation to look into who leaked Mr Bridges' expenses.
Mr Bridges' MP expenses were released earlier than scheduled last week, with $113,973 spent on travel and accommodation between April and June.
Yesterday, an independent review found no evidence that staff in the office of Parliament's speaker, Speaker Trevor Mallard, or Parliamentary Service finance and corporate staff released details.
The search for a crew member missing from a Sealord vessel off the Wairarapa coast is continuing through the night.
The company says mid-morning this morning crew onboard the Otakou became aware a crew member did not report for duty.
A full muster was conducted to confirm this, and a search was immediately commenced and authorities notified, Sealord said.
The four vessels involved in the search will search overnight, and will review the situation after sunrise tomorrow.
The two helicopters searching were stood down at nightfall.
Weather conditions in the area are fair but are predicted to deteriorate tomorrow.
Sealord said it is making all effort to notify next of kin.
It said the crew member was not on active duty at the time of disappearance and the reason for the disappearance is not known at this stage.
All other crew are accounted for, however, they are very concerned for the safety of their team member, the company said.
Sealord is taking this situation very seriously and is providing support to all staff, it said.
The company is also cooperating with all search and rescue instructions, it said.
Earlier tonight Vince Cholewa of the Maritime Rescue Co-Ordination Centre said the centre was advised of the crew member overboard around 11.30am.
At that time the person had been in the water for 50 minutes or less, he told 1 NEWS.
Mr Cholewa said there were four vessels and two helicopters involved in the search - Otakou, two other fishing vessels, the police launch Lady Elizabeth IV, a LifeFlight helicopter and an Air Force NH90.
The estimated location is 11km east of Glendhu Rocks.
Russell McVeagh has today confirmed the resignation of a partner following an independent investigation into complaints over inappropriate complaints made while intoxicated, the law firm said in a statement.
Russell McVeagh board chair Malcom Crotty said, "A thorough investigation substantiates the complaints and the partner concerned has apologised and tendered his resignation.
"We are deeply disappointed in the partner at the centre of the investigation."
Mr Crotty said the firm "is committed to changing the culture" of their organisation, adding that they "all recognise that change requires collective and long-term commitment".
"All partners in the firm agreed to uphold and lead the change," he said.
"The partner concerned let the firm down and we have now lost trust and confidence in him. The Board determined that his conduct has fallen below our expected standards and we have accepted his resignation.
"There is no place for inappropriate conduct at our firm. Despite the circumstances, it is encouraging that our people have spoken up."
Russell McVeagh has arranged to meet with the New Zealand Law Society following the investigation.
