Business as usual for NSW Labor

“An inquiry into the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, a corruption finding against a NSW Maritime lawyer and, to top it off, the resignation of a cabinet minister who admitted accessing adult and gambling websites on his parliamentary computer.

“Even by the standards of the eternally scandal-ridden Labor government, yesterday was a bad day for public administration in NSW.

“But, of course, it doesn’t end there. The Director of Public Prosecutions is considering whether to bring charges against a former Labor MP and parliamentary secretary, Karyn Paluzzano, over rorting her public expenses and lying to the Independent Commission Against Corruption about it.

“Next week, the commission will launch public hearings into two separate cases involving employees of the Sydney Water corporation.”
