The Australian reports:
Explosive new allegations have emerged concerning embattled Labor MP Emma Husar, including that she sexually harassed another politician and diverted thousands of dollars into her personal bank account.
Staff allege Ms Husar performed the revealing leg-crossing move made famous by Sharon Stone in the film Basic Instinct in front of a Labor frontbencher, BuzzFeed News has reported this morning. …
Staff allegedly told Mr Whelan that Ms Husar would often talk about sex and engage in inappropriate sexualised behaviour in the office.
“Several employees reported that you would discuss in the office who you found attractive and who you wanted to have sex with or who you have had sex with including references to Members of Parliament and Members of Staff,” Whelan reportedly wrote in his letter to Husar.
The letter details an allegation from a staff member that on 19 June 2017 at approximately 7.05pm while in Labor frontbencher Jason Clare’s office, Ms Husar performed the revealing leg-crossing move made famous by Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct.
“It is alleged that you and [a staff member] attended Mr Jason Clare’s office at Parliament. Mr Clare was sitting on the floor playing with his son. [The staff member] alleged that he was sitting opposite you and that on three occasions you spread your legs, revealing that you were not wearing any underwear. [The staff member] felt that your conduct was deliberate, proactive and targeted towards Mr Clare.”
This morning, Mr Clare said the allegation that Ms Husar had performed the Sharon Stone move in his office was “categorically untrue”.
Maybe he didn’t notice, which is why she did it three times!
Others allegedly said Husar purchased multiple topless firefighter calendars and placed them on employees’ desks.
Can’t say I’d find that offensive but imagine if a male MP handed out female model calendars to staff – he’d be lynched.
