Chris Bishop is an honest man

Yesterday there was a hit job on National MP Chris Bishop saying he used social media to communicate with teenage girls. Anonymous sources were not happy with him even though it appeared he had done little wrong.

Unfortunately, there is someone who doesn’t like Bishop and who has been shopping this story around the media and blogs for some time.  

Chris Bishop has denied he has done anything wrong, and we should take him on his word. He has a reputation for being an honest man and it is a shame that he has been accused of being some sort of perverted creep like Anthony Weiner.

Chris is such an honest man and with so little to hide, he really should voluntarily submit to having all his communications reviewed by the Chief Whip to demonstrate that there is absolutely nothing to hide. Or, if he is really convinced he has done nothing wrong, he could get one of the trusted senior journalists whom he knows and communicates with regularly to review his comms devices’ history and give him a public clear bill of health.

If he does not take these steps he will be unfairly accused of being a creepy perv, like the rather defamatory allegations that are being hurled around at The Standard at the moment.

This is a shabby hit job, and do not be at all surprised if some scumbag releases a dick pic and says Bishop sent it to another teenager.

It is surprising that members of Bishop’s own party are not defending him more against these claims, even though some of them have received unverified information about Bishop’s online antics and have dismissed them as fakes.
