While Len Brown appears to be getting off with so much as a slap on the hand with a wet bus ticket for lying in LGOIMA requests, in Australia they have organisations that can truly hold lying ratbags to account.
Like the Independent Commission Against Corruption…who are currently holding Joe Tripodi’s feet to the fire.
Former Labor minister Joe TripodiÂ Â has been accused of lying to a corruption inquiry after giving extraordinary evidence that Eddie Obeid’s ”interest” in businesses at Circular Quay was not financial.
Mr Tripodi, who was recalled to the Independent Commission Against Corruption at his own request, changed his evidence on Wednesday to admit he did tell a staff member in 2006 that his corrupt former colleague had ”an interest” in three cafes at Circular Quay.
But the former ports minister claimed he meant ”interested or concerned” rather than financially involved in the lucrative businesses.
