Last night's release of Auckland Mayor's sexual indiscretions was a surprise, adding to that, he didn't even try to deflect the allegations.
Thoughts and emotions varied around Auckland today.
The woman who released details of the affair, Bevan Chuang, has called for Len Brown's resignation.
There have been mixed reactions to that call as well.
At this stage, Len Brown has decided that he will remain in his position as mayor to fulfil the duties that lie ahead of him and his council.
