ICAC: What About Lowy?

"Voters deserve to know what private donors to political parties expect, and get, for their money." (Editorial: Endless questions only a federal ICAC can answer, Sydney Morning Herald, 9/9/14)

I couldn't agree more.

OK, so we know what Lib donor Brickworks got:

"Two weeks before the 2011 election, then opposition leader Barry O'Farrell announced a tax policy that benefited developer Brickworks while the company was allegedly bankrolling a researcher in his office and had secretly donated $125,000 to the Liberal campaign. As premier, Mr O'Farrell made good on the policy - to repeal a controversial property transfer tax - six weeks after the election." (Libs party favours, Sean Nicholls, Sydney Morning Herald, 9/9/14)

But what - harking back to my 8/9/14 post ICAC: Questions Arising - about Frank Lowy?

Frank phoned me the other night , & this subject came up .
He was quite upset that anyone would even suspect that he is a deceitful business operator .
He assured me that his behaveour would stand the test of a Royal Commission .In fact he , very generously volunteered that he will personally meet the costs of any Royal Commission that was mounted to investigate this matter .
Ok Ok , now you can see through me , & see that I am only bull shitting .
