Learned opinion 19/12/2012
Gillard and Co might think they’ve swept the AWU slush fund scandal under a heavy duty axminster but the stinking lump of corruption is still quite visible.
A former chief corruption fighter and university chancellor is the latest to suggest possible wrongdoing by the Prime Harridan.
Gillard advised Blewitt on the incorporation of the association and prepared the rules of the association and, following a query from the commissioner, wrote arguing for the incorporation of the association.
The letter has not been disclosed so it is impossible to draw any conclusions about it. Gillard has maintained that she did nothing wrong but has not explained why she says that.
However, without some explanation from her as to what occurred, there is, in my opinion, a prima facie case that she could have been charged along with Blewitt as she drafted the rules of the association for Blewitt knowing that the rules did not disclose the purpose for which the association was being incorporated.
