The ABC reports that local Labor Senator Kate Lundy has had to accept the resignation of her media adviser Vic Adams after he was found to be writing letters to the editor without disclosing his affiliation.
This follows our Liberal Senator, Gary Humphries, raising the issue.
Expect a vengeful Lundy faction to dig up a Liberal staffer engaging in the same behaviour as payback real soon now.
UPDATE: Senator Humphries’ office has made this statement to RiotACT:
- Senator Humphries did not in fact raise the issue; but responded to a Journalist’s queries yesterday afternoon.
I understand that the Canberra Times journalist stumbled on the letter which was published in the Canberra Times last week and made the connection.
Senator Humphries, nor his staff had anything to do with the information being published or in passing the information to anybody; despite Senator Lundy’s claims on ABC Radio this morning.
One suspects those assurances will not still the wrath of Kate. Letter writing Liberals will be holding their breath waiting to see which of them cops the payback.
(On the other hand, given the state of Kate’s website, maybe her vengeance isn’t to be feared so much.)
