Bizarre Cocktales: MP Quits after Photo of “Member”in Glass of Red Wine

August 6, 2013


Queensland MP and the head of the state’s so-called “Ethics Committee,” Peter Dowling, has quit after sending pornographic images of himself via mobile phone.

The allegations have been made in a letter by his former mistress to Speaker Fiona Simpson.

Our exclusive sources tell us that  they have seen several explicit text messages, including pictures of “a penis in a glass of red wine.”

Mr Dowling’s mistress, who asked not to be named, detailed how they repeatedly used Mr Dowling’s parliamentary annex bedsit and electorate office for sex during their two and a half year affair.

The Queensland premier must have known about a porn scandal involving the head of state parliament’s ethics committee, former committee chief Alex Douglas says.

Dr Douglas said he and others in the parliament had known about the allegations involving Mr Dowling for some time.

It defied logic that the premier himself did not know, he said.

“People have known about it for a while. I think they wanted to know who would do something,” Dr Douglas said.

“The premier has got a huge staff and they trawl all the social networking sites. If they didn’t know about this, then they’re pretty slow.”

Dr Douglas, a former LNP MP now with the United Australia Party, said the role of the ethics committee chairman was to uphold the high standards of the parliament.

Mr Dowling’s position was now untenable.

“If Mr Newman hasn’t already removed Mr Dowling, then he’s failing in his duty as the premier,” Dr Douglas said.

A spokesman for the premier told the Gutter Trash: “We have been in contact with Mr Dowling who assures us that he has at all times complied with the parliamentary guidelines.”

Mr Dowling has also been accused of taking advantage of parliamentary travel trips to meet his mistress in locations including Perth and New Zealand.

He has confirmed that he accepted more than $20,000 in free upgraded flights although he was not required by parliamentary rules to declare them.

Asked about his behaviour, Mr Dowling told the paper: “I have complied fully with all parliamentary requirements for disclosure.”

Mr Dowling has not returned our calls.

Deputy Opposition Leader Tim Mulherin said there must be an immediate investigation into any misuse of public funds or resources by Mr Dowling.

In the meantime he must stand down from the ethics committee, and the parliamentary crime and misconduct committee.

“The personal behaviour of LNP MPs is a matter for the premier and he has to say whether Mr Dowling meets the standards he’s set for his MPs,” Mr Mulherin said.

Mr Dowling’s website says he has been married for 27 years and has two children.

    I am utterly disgusted that the press keep delving into the private lives of politicians! And so now we have another cultured gentleman betrayed, sacrificed on the alter of yobboism. Whereas it is the traditional ocker way to dip one’s wick into an iced cold schooner, Dowling is paying the price for his preference for red wine. Obviously this sort of thing is unacceptable in the fevered Fourex swamps of Queensland. It brings to mind the persecution of that champion chair-sniffer Troy Buswell. What a pity politics in this country is so often dragged into the gutter by a prurient press putting their curious noses where they don’t belong.

    A waste of red.

    It was probably only Jamison’s Run or something.

    Presumably, it wasn’t a bottle of $2 cleanskin shiraz, or the picture would feature chemical burns to his fireman’s helmet.

    Dowling should cash in by endorsing a personalised line of drinking straws!

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
