NSW La­bor leader groped me, says ABC re­porter

Taranaki Daily News - - World -

An ABC jour­nal­ist says NSW La­bor leader Luke Fo­ley put his hands down her un­der­pants dur­ing a par­lia­men­tary staff Christ­mas party two years ago. In a state­ment, Ash­leigh Raper said she wanted to ‘‘set the record straight’’ about an in­ci­dent in­volv­ing Fo­ley in Syd­ney’s CBD in Novem­ber 2016 that had been the source of wide­spread spec­u­la­tion. Raper said Fo­ley called her on Sun­day to apol­o­gise, telling her: ‘‘I’m not a phi­lan­derer, I’m not a groper, I’m just a drunk id­iot’’. He told her he would re­sign as leader of the NSW La­bor Party.
