Sex toy thrower's boss won't comment on disciplinary actions
The employer of a woman who threw a dildo at Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce refuses to say if she will be disciplined.
Josie Butler, a nurse at Hillmorton Hospital in Christchurch, leapt to international fame after flinging the toy in the face of Joyce at Waitangi
She said she was "very concerned" about the effects of the TPP on her patients.
"We already have over 300,000 children living below the poverty line, I don't want to live in a country where families have to choose between potentially life saving medication or feeding their children because of the increased price of medications under the TPPA."

Canterbury District Health Board general manager of people and capability Michael Frampton said the DHB would not comment on whether Butler faced any disciplinary measures.
Butler said earlier she was unimpressed with Prime Minister John Key, who called her actions "appalling".
"That's rich coming from a man who cuts funding from domestic and sexual violence services, pulls ponytails, and engages in rape jokes.
"I'm appalled that our taxes paid for the Prime Minister to watch sports and talk about a sex toy on our National Day instead of doing his job and representing the Crown at Waitangi."
She said she was overwhelmed by the "amazing" support she had received from around the world.
It emerged Butler was one of the life-saving nurses on the front line of the Christchurch earthquakes.
Butler was given a Christchurch Earthquake Award in 2012 in recognition of acts of kindness, service and heroism.
The list of award recipients stated that Josie Marie Butler provided lifesaving CPR and first aid to the injured on Colombo St.
