This Husar saga is sounding like a late night program on the SBS.



Labor MP Jason Clare refutes claim that under-fire colleague provocatively crossed her legs in front of him
By Lane Calcutt • Political Reporter 8:32pm Aug 2, 2018

VIDEO: Labor MP Emma Husar ‘fighting for political life’

Labor frontbencher Jason Clare has rejected as “categorically untrue” allegations under-siege MP Emma Husar sexually harassed him in his office at Parliament House.

Ms Husar has taken to Twitter to vehemently deny the claims.

“This smear campaign is completely and utterly untrue, unfair and hurtful beyond belief. 100 percent false,” she wrote, accusing people of trying to 'destroy' her.

“These are absolute lies that have been fabricated by Jeremy Anderson, who’s working with his father to leak against me and ruin my reputation.”

The claim was contained in a letter from special investigator, John Whelan, to Ms Husar, in which he detailed a long list of allegations against her, published by Buzzfeed.

Mr Whelan was asked by the NSW branch of the Labor Party, to inquire into claims the member for the seat of Lindsay, in Sydney’s west, had bullied staff and misused her parliamentary entitlement.

In what has been described as a “Basic Instinct” moment, the letter cites an incident, when it’s alleged Ms Husar provocatively crossed her legs as Mr Clare sat on the floor.

But, Mr Clare told 9NEWS, the claim was “categorically untrue”.

The letter also lists allegations by former staff members that Ms Husar was abusive, forced them to do domestic chores, talked openly in her office about her sex life, and had sexually harassed a number of male employees.

It also raised claims she had diverted party funds to her personal bank account.

Twenty staff have left in two years.

Ms Husar, who has taken indefinite leave while the investigation proceeds, has strongly denied any misuse of entitlements.

Yesterday she was forced to defend her attendance at a Bruno Mars concert in Brisbane during a taxpayer-funded interstate trip.

What is clear is there are forces, who had access to the documents, who are trying to bring Ms Husar down.

Bill Shorten’s office said he hadn’t seen the letter, nor did he know about it before today.

He repeated he didn’t know of the investigation, until told by the NSW ALP on July 18.

Whatever the findings, some within the Labor Party are questioning if Ms Husar will contest the next election, and whether she’ll be re-endorsed.

Treasurer, Scott Morrison, said it was beyond belief Mr Shorten didn’t know about the allegations earlier.

“If he didn’t know about them, what sort of an indictment is that on him,” he said.

“He either is incompetent or he’s been covering it up. Which is it, Bill?”

He said Labor had made Ms Husar the “pin up” of the 2016 campaign.

“She was the face the Labor Party presented at the last election. There’s now egg on that face.

“But more importantly, there’s egg on the face of Bill Shorten.”

Greens senator, senator Sarah Hanson-Young, called the situation "revolting", and further evidence of "sexualised bullying" of women in parliament.

Ms Hanson-Young said it was clear "someone's got it in" for Ms Husar and had sunk to a new low, by leaking the allegations.

"There's one thing to be questioning whether somebody's entitlements have been properly managed," she told 9NEWS.

"There's a whole other thing to be attacking somebody with sexist slurs and innuendo.

"This is still very much a boys' club in this place.

"There are still those people who still think parliament is not a place for women.

"We've got to stem put sexist behaviour and sexualised bullying."

Former Labor powerbroker, Graham Richardson, doesn't think Ms Husar can survive.

"I don't think she should be in parliament after the election, and I'm pretty sure she won't be," the former minister told Sky News.

Apparently the leaker wants to be nominated for Emma’s seat. Innuendo did the job for him.

Emma did not practice nepotism—Barnyard did that, $200Kpa jobs for Vicky.

Emma was not constantly drunk after lunch—Barnyard, old Beetroot Face, clearly was.

etc.

Scare for Labor as Husar rethinks resigning
BRAD NORINGTON 12:17AM AUGUST 14, 2018

Emma Husar in Canberra.

Senior NSW Labor officials fear federal MP Emma Husar may be reconsidering her decision not to recontest her seat at the [b]next election, buoyed by the findings of a ­report on staff bullying and harassment allegations that there was “no basis for her to resign from the Australian parliament”.

A possible change of heart by Ms Husar, who announced last week she would bow out, two days before report findings on her conduct were released, would pose a dilemma for the NSW ALP’s head office, which had made it clear she needed to depart “her way or their way”.

A sudden reversal could also create a political headache for Bill Shorten, who appears to publicly maintain his support for the first-time MP amid allegations she mistreated as many as 22 staff. However, he is believed to back efforts to ensure she quits.

The NSW ALP has already flagged calling nominations for Ms Husar’s seat of Lindsay in Sydney’s west, but there are no obvious candidates to replace her.

Despite Ms Husar announcing last week that she would not recontest her seat, she has not yet submitted a letter to party head office to confirm she is relinquishing her endorsement for Lindsay, and she remains the officially anointed candidate.

Unless NSW ALP general secretary Kaila Murnain and other top party officers were to accept Ms Husar reversing her decision, their only recourse to force her out would be formal steps to dis­endorse her as the party candidate.

Such a move could precipitate a legal battle six months before the federal election, if lawyers for Ms Husar ran a case arguing the party’s internal investigation into her conduct by barrister John Whelan had found “no basis” for her resignation.

A well-placed Labor source told The Australian: “Party officials are racking their brains about what to do if she decides to run. Unless they receive a letter from her saying otherwise, she remains the candidate, and they can’t do anything about it.”

A spokeswoman for the NSW ALP head office said it was among the recipients of Ms Husar’s emailed statement last week saying she would not recontest her seat, and accepted this as confirmation of her decision. “The NSW Labor Party officers met to accept Ms Husar’s public notice of her resignation as Labor’s candidate for Lindsay on Wednesday evening. Nominations will open in due course,” the spokeswoman said.

According to a summary of findings, Mr Whelan found allegations against Ms Husar that she subjected staff to “unreasonable management” and demanded they perform non-work “personal duties” had “merit”. But he said other allegations against her of lewd conduct, sexual harassment and misleading parliament could not be supported. The barrister left it up to authorities to investigate other allegations that Ms Husar misused her MP entitlements, and that campaign funds landed in a personal bank account.

The Australian asked Ms Husar last night — via the office of the Opposition Leader, which has been handling requests for comment while she is on extended leave — if she might be reconsidering her decision to not recontest her seat, in light of the Whelan report findings released on Friday, and public support over the weekend urging her to continue.

“Not that I’m aware of,” her spokesman said.

Senior party sources said the prospect of Ms Husar rethinking her position had become a “live issue” inside the NSW ALP, despite her saying on Wednesday that she wanted to leave on her “own terms”, and would not let people keep “pummelling” her with “vexatious, malicious allegations” and “no facts” and “no ­evidence”.

The main factors behind any reconsideration of Ms Husar’s decision not to run appear to be the overall softness of criticism of her behaviour in the summary of Mr Whelan’s findings, and the key phrase saying there was “no basis” for her to resign from parliament.


An online petition called “Bring back Husar!” has been started by her friend and local party member Peggy Willcox, who said she hoped to present the petition to Mr Shorten.

So this is all about “might?”

If she is cleared, why not?

Why was Barnyard not kicked out of Parliament for nepotism and corruption?

Gee this is a busy site. why is there a second Political animal site ?


Sounds like a VERY BIG COVER UP.

The truth will come out if Hussy is ditched at the next election for that other bloke.

Sounds like it is details of a nasty Labor plot to put the skids under Hussy has been leaked to the outside world by Buzzfeed.

The rumor is that Hussy is being ditched because she has not done a union Brown Nosing Apprenticeship.

NEVER forget it is the CFMMEU that controls EVERY aspect of the Labor Party and that Little Shorty is just the puppet of the CFMMEU.

Wonder what the next LABOR SCANDAL will be that Buzzfeed will leak to the PUBLIC ?

The Lefties are rushing into DENY MODE and looking the other way and closing their eyes and ears.

Shorty is in PANIC MODE as the CFMMEU pressures him to ditch Hussy and put their candidate in.

The CFMMEU will be ropeable that their carefully orchestrated smear campaign scandal to put the skids under Hussy failed.

The CFMMEU don't want and don't trust Hussy because she never served an apprenticeship as a union brown noser.

Will Hussy bring the house down and turn INDEPENDENT?????

Oh the scandal prone union controlled Labor Party never fails to entertain.
