MUM GIVES HER BACK­ING

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

LUKE Fo­ley’s mother has hit out at claims that he put his hand in­side an ABC re­porter’s un­der­pants at a Christ­mas party.

“He’s fine, we’re fine, it will blow over, he’s done noth­ing wrong,” He­len Fo­ley told The Sat­ur­day Tele­graph yes­ter­day from her home at St Ives.

Mrs Fo­ley said she had spo­ken to her son over the al­leged in­ci­dent and he told her not to worry.

“He’s said it will all be fine,” she said.

Mr Fo­ley on Thurs­day stepped down as NSW La­bor leader amid the al­le­ga­tions.

He has stren­u­ously de­nied the claims, vow­ing to fight the “false” ac­cu­sa­tions and say­ing he is go­ing to be­gin defama­tion pro­ceed­ings.
