MUM GIVES HER BACKING
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.
