Federal Liberal staffer sacked over video of lewd act on a female MP’s desk
A staffer accused of performing sex acts inside Parliament house has been sacked by the federal government.
It comes after a whistleblower alleged a culture of sexual deviance in Canberra.
A Channel 10 report claimed MPs and staffers regularly performed sex acts in Parliament, in some cases filming themselves engaging in lewd acts in the office of a female MP.
It was also alleged sex workers were routinely brought into Parliament House, with a “meditation room” used frequently for sexual encounters.
The whistleblower said he didn’t believe any laws had been broken, but that the alleged actions did not meet community expectations.
A federal Liberal staffer has been sacked over a video of him performing a lewd act on the desk of a female MP in Parliament House.
In a statement, Prime Minister Scott Morrison condemned the “disgusting” behaviour.
“It’s not good enough, and is totally unacceptable,” he said.
