Tasmanian Greens Party leader Cassy O’Connor (above, with her son/daughter/you-figure-it-out) has indignantly resurrected an old story – or the media has suddenly become interested in it – about how she was once “vilely” abused by a Liberal Party staffer. He did not rape her though, like another Liberal staffer is said to have done to the Blessed St. Brittany of Canberra, but instead called her some very mean words, the terrible events having occurred in the Before Covid times of February 2019, as dear, brave Cassy recounts in exhaustive feminine detail:
Mr Hudgson called me a “meth-head cunt” as he and his colleagues walked across the lawns not far from us.
Imagine hating women so much you’d say that audibly about a woman you don’t know, who also happens to be an elected representative?
I was doing an interview at the time and didn’t hear the insult but Alice did. I believed her without question because in the decade I’ve worked with Alice she has never lied to me.
Others who were with Mr Hudgson at the time heard it too. We know this. We’ve had it confirmed.
Alice made detailed notes of her recollections, then reported this incident to the then-premier’s office.
Your first reaction to reading this is of course wondering why women are allowed anywhere near buildings of government, whether on their lawns, or especially inside them, but it is what it is, for now, but the clock is ticking on this, and the day is coming.
(And note: despite the headline (merely designed to lure you in, and it worked) this site is not suggesting that O’Connor is a wretched habitual user of methamphetamines, nor even a casual user, nor that Irish people should never have been allowed to come here. She does seem to be a cunt though.)
The man she is referring to is Andrew Hudgson, a staffer for the federal Assistant Treasurer and Housing Minister Michael Sukkar (a ‘good’, presentable, Maronite Leb).
Today Cassy, using parliamentary privilege, hit back at young Hudgy by powerfully and originally calling him a:
She suggested that the Liberal Party had become like the Catholic Church, moving abusers around to different jobs, and just variously blathered:
And so, here we are. Andrew Hudgson’s story was believed. He went on to work for the Morrison Government.
It reminds me a bit of the Catholic Church of old — shuffle people around, but keep them on the books.
Madam Speaker, this is the standard our current Prime Minister walks past because, it becomes more clear by the day, he accepts it.
The women and girls of Australia have long memories [ed- boy do they ever], Mr Morrison. We see you, we hear you, and we believe you are a big part of the problem.
It appears Hudgy has taken one for the team, and fallen on his sword, and resigned.
Anyway, this is a very important story, like all these current scandals regarding Liberal Party figures, whether senior ministers like Christian Porter, or all these sundry toxically masculine private schoolboy staffers, it’s all very important, and it has given rise to mass protests:
and it’s just a happy coincidence for some that the government has fallen behind Labor in the polls for the first time in no one knows how long, just as an election is due, at some indeterminate date this very year.
