The Canberra Times has an intriguing story on Simon Corbell announcing to the Assembly that his Office of Regulatory Services is investigating the Canberra Liberals.
This is curious.
In the article the Liberals say they know nothing about this.
The ORS media release page has nothing on this at the time of writing.
So Simon is in special communication with ORS about it’s activities in relation to his own political enemies?
This is not a pretty place for a democratic society to be.
But is appears that Gary Humphries scorched earth strategy of self preservation can take us anywhere.
UPDATE 13/02/13 12:26: Andrew Barr has tweeted at us as to where Simon Corbell’s knowledge of the investigation came from:
@the_riotact Former ACT Liberal President Gary Kent made his complaint to ORS very public on ABC radio earlier in the week
