Brendan Sheehan AKA Archie Butterfly is obviously a person with some mental issues.
I've seen a court document that described him as deranged, fabricates, defames without evidence etc.
The summary was pages long and read much better than his tripe.
Interesting is that all the things HE writes about others, (whistle blower, thief, liar etc) he's actually guilty of himself.
A family friend since childhood came out publicly and stated he was NEVER molested as he claims by any clergy.
What Archie (I use that term loosely as he changed it to hide from family in NZ he ripped off it seems) is he gets a whisper of somebody doing something and thinks here is a story, he then Googles info and of course Google comes up with all sorts of things. He then reads all this stuff and makes up his own "fill in the missing pieces" to make the story GREAT reading.
Some of the crap is so far from the truth it 'would make a best seller novel, oh he's talented in making a story sound so good, but 99% of is is fabricated, no evidence at all..
When he gets it into his head he actually believes his own blogging, you see he's not journalist, he never was, just a blogger.
He's tried many a court case with a monetary value at the end and lost EVERY case, you see you can't win if everything is made up or not the FULL truth.
He's now hiding up in Nth Qld away from the local Police here who he was having constant visits apparently, also it's a long way for the people he defames to come knock on his door.
I know a lot of the people he has defamed and the great lengths he has gone to make a colorful STORY, that's all they are, Stories...
Just because somebody has a positive doesn't make them a cheat, it makes it a mistake of withholding time.
Just because somebody bought something unregistered doesn't make them a cheat, go to any produce store and there are things there not registered and you wouldn't know.
But that is EXACTLY what he does, runs with something that would make eye popping reading, who cares if it's true, mainstream media doesn't care either.
Ask his family back in NZ if he's a good bloke, the answer won't be favorable to him.
Ask the people who REALLY know him and you'll get the same answer.
Note he has had his websites (blogs) in the past court ordered to be shut down... The next shutdown must be close, it will just be who will waste money doing it because he'll just start another one, although last time he was court ordered NOT to publish in any way for 2 years or a jail term was waiting, What's that tell you....
