Beyond the expected

Katy Gallagher to pursue fake Facebook profiler to the ends of the earth

By johnboy 8 May 2009 58

ACT Deputy Chief Minister Katy Gallagher is in a fighting mood.

The Canberra Times reports that she’s made some progress in the fake Facebook profile imbroglio.

Facebook have finally taken the profile offline.

In a move of some interest to us here at RiotACT she’s off to court to get a subpoena “to compel Facebook to provide the name and details of the person who created the fake profile”.

Facebook are unlikely to have more than an email address and possibly an IP address with some time stamps. Although what incentive they have to keep IP logs for every contact on their site is beyond me so the email address might be all they can offer.

How this pans out will be very interesting.

What’s Your opinion?

Mr Evil, from Katy’s website:

“Before her election, Katy worked for five years as an organiser for the Community and Public Sector Union, representing the industrial interests of employees in the Commonwealth public sector. Prior to this, Katy worked for People First ACT, an organisation providing advocacy and support to individuals with an intellectual disability and was a project worker for Woden Community Service, in a community life skills project, working with children with disabilities.”

A Union – gee, that’s a different path for a Labor member to take into politics!

I’d love to know what her previous work colleagues thought of her.

#53 so in that case, she’s well suited to working with politicians.

She’s a fcuking troll living in a make believe world where voters really do believe that she has somthing to offer … as opposed to the reality that she was the last moron standing in a vote between her, a tame hamster and a wheelie bin.

And that’s with hamsters being illegal to import into Australia . . .

interesting paragraph in the linked article
‘Opposition Leader Zed Seselja maintains that he has no knowledge of who was behind the site, and that it was not someone employed at the Legislative Assembly’

Hmmn, if he doesn’t know who it was how does he know they are not employed at the assembly?

SWING AND A MISS!

One can eliminate suspects without knowing the identity of the culprit.

How can he possibly *know* that it was not someone who is employed at the assembly? The only person I *know* didn’t do it is me.

Well now you are playing the skeptic philosopher. That’s all well and good but it’s not your original point.

*um* yes it is. It is exactly my original point…

Alternatively it’ll track down to a public access kiosk in the Canberra Centre.

Or the local library, which has free internet access, and no library card required.

The question is though, did she ever *have* a sense of humour? Or of the ridiculous.

Katy has a very long and illustrious history of the ridiculous – just look at any portfolio she’s ever touched in the ACT.

Does anyone know what she did out in the real world, before joining politics?

Clown Killer 12:27 pm 11 May 09

And besides, she’s better than all of the anonymous slaggers on here put together.

I think that you’d find any objective assessment of her performance would prove otherwise.

Loose Brown 12:13 pm 11 May 09

I’m sure Katy wouldn’t mind any of these comments – she entered politics so she knows she will have to face criticism.

And besides, she’s better than all of the anonymous slaggers on here put together.

I think we got it the first time Ray.

RayP 11:46 am 11 May 09

Katy, we have searched for a long long time.

And we have looked everywhere and everywhere.

And we found your rattle and dummy.

Andrew had them.

No, I don’t know why Andrew had them.

Perhaps he’s next in line and he wants to get ahead.

But we haven’t found your sense of humour.

And Ms Ant wants to know if you’ve ever had one.

She says she has been all over the assembly and in everybody’s desks and lunch boxes.

And she’s never seen it.

Are you sure you brought your sense of humour to the assembly?

Are you sure you didn’t drop it some where?

Oh well, can anybody help Katy out with some sense of humour?

No John, Ms Ant says she’s never seen yours either.

No Andrew, she doesn’t trust you after you took her rattle and dummy.

And No John H, you’ve left yours out in the gutter.

Oh No, what are we to do?

ant 2:34 pm 10 May 09

The question is though, did she ever *have* a sense of humour? Or of the ridiculous.

RayP 1:37 pm 10 May 09

A teacher takes charge in the Assembly:

Can whoever took Katy’s sense of humour please give it back?

Have you got it John?

What about you Zed?

Have your lot got it?

What about you Meredith?

Have your lot got it?

Okay, everyone open their desks.

We’re going to have to have a search.

We’re not going to get any work done until she gets it back.

And while we’re at it, we better find her rattle and dummy as well.

Will ACT taxpayers be footing her legal bills as she pursues this (terribly serious and dreadful) issue through the courts?

Damn, I would have voted for the wheelie bin had I known it was running…..

I think the fact that she is pushing the matter so firmly only illustrates the deficit in her abilities as Treasurer and Minister for Health, I have hardly heard a peep out of her in relation to anything work related.

They should block the Facebook site from all parliamentary PC’s in order to stop the immense timewasting that must go on.

Stop bitching Katy & get back to work….
