Former New Zealand First MP Brendan Horan is continuing to insist he has done nothing wrong and is asking for his phone records back.
Mr Horan was expelled from the New Zealand First caucus last week after party leader Winston Peters said he had received information that made him lose confidence in the MP.
His phone records, which showed multiple calls to the TAB, were leaked by an unknown person after his dumping.
Mr Horan says he is concerned for people who have called him in confidence and whose jobs are on the line.
"That's why I've said all along that it's politically reckless for those records to be leaked."
He says all MPs are phoned by the public and people who do this need to have their privacy respected.
