Richard Mulcahy is screaming blue murder about an email sent to MLA’s purportedly from the Australian Christian Lobby on the subject of gay civil unions.
The email originated from within the Legislative Assembly.
Andrew Barr has now fessed up that the email was actually sent by his own staff.
In a pleasant change from Stanhopian instransigence (*cough* Aidan Bruford *cough*) the miscreant has fallen on their sword.
â€œI do not believe it is behaviour that is acceptable for ministerial staff. The staff member, last week, offered their resignation which I immediately accepted
â€œI apologise to the Australian Christian Lobby, Members of the Legislative Assembly and the community.â€
UPDATED: Despite in the ABC story declaring that: I think all people involved in politics should put their name to their positions” Andrew neglected to mention the name of his staffer.
In our comments mr. groden has named him as Matthew Lawrence who it seems has some significant form in dubious behavior. Your taxes keep people like him in clover.
