Incompetence personified 28/11/2012
Like Bart Simpson, Julia Gillard repeatedly, and unconvincingly, pleads she did nothing wrong.
Maybe, maybe not. But, tell you what, if one were in need of lawyering up, she’d be last on my list of go-visiting.
Ms Gillard has repeatedly and strenuously denied any wrongdoing. She admits providing legal advice to help set up the association, which she later described as a “slush fund” for the re-election of union officials, but says she had no knowledge of its operations.
Legal documents, property searches and bank records show that about $100,000 was siphoned from the association to buy the Fitzroy house in 1993 as a home for Mr Wilson to use in Melbourne. Ms Gillard, who attended the auction with Mr Wilson, provided a power of attorney so he could purchase the property for $230,000 in the name of Mr Blewitt.
