Bronwyn Pullar wrote herself into history when she toppled former ACC minister Nick Smith, three ACC directors and the corporation’s chief executive.

The ACC claimant with friends in high National Party places became a central player this year in a scorching political drama which led to a top level boardroom clean out the likes of which New Zealand has rarely seen.

A raft of official inquiries were launched around allegations of leaks, privacy breaches and who told who what about whom.

Two of those inquiries are due to report in August.

Aided by public relations spin doctor Michelle Boag, Ms Pullar – claiming she remains brain injured from a 2002 cycling crash – launched an all-out attack on ACC through the media.

In this special investigation, NBR takes a closer look at the woman referred to by associates as “BronCorp,” NBR Print and ONLINE editions follow the money trails to investigate the Bronwyn Pullar Affair and the parts played in her life and times by Money, Mayhem and Murder.
