Kristina Keneally is a former Premier of NSW and Labor federal Senator.
Earlier this year, she failed to win the federal seat of Fowler from her residence situated at Scotland Island, a water-borne community situated in an estuary called Pittwater, part of Broken Bay in northern Sydney, New South Wales, and lost to local Vietnamese immigrant Dai Le.
Keneally rose through Labor’s ranks by being close to corrupt former NSW Minister Eddie Obeid. Keneally’s only demonstrated talent, as far as we are aware, is to ingratiate herself with powerful people within her own party, including Eddie Obeid and Joe Tripodi, who installed her as NSW Premier. She failed in that role, and voters rejected her when she ran for Bennelong. As Shadow Immigration Minister, frankly, we didn’t trust her to turn back a canoe.
It is alleged that Keneally jnr submitted a false report of a man named Luke Moore threatening to kill a police officer, which resulted in him being refused bail. Luckily for Moore, he had recorded that conversation. Sometimes it pays to be paranoid.
Police ‘Verballing’ is an old problem, and one which used to be more common. It can be safely assumed that this practice still continues to some extent.
We saw Kristina Keneally give evidence in a defamation trial in 2019. She was by far the most smug witness we had ever seen. Keneally’s son must share much of that smugness if he was engaging in fabricating evidence.

Jeffrey Epstein’s long time girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell has had her sex trafficking conviction upheld.
Judge Alison Nathan of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld Maxwell’s conviction on transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and sex trafficking of minors. However, Judge Nathan ruled that the three conspiracy counts Maxwell was convicted of were “multiplicitous,” and sentencing the convicted sex trafficker on all of them would violate the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause.
Last month, Judge Nathan had denied Maxwell’s request for a new trial after a juror had disclosed to other jurors during jury deliberations that he had been sexually abused as a child and had not revealed that fact in response to questions about prior sex abuse posed in a written questionnaire.

At about 1.00 am on Sunday 17 February 2019, police were patrolling in Rockhampton when they saw a car driving erratically and knocking over a street sign. They pulled the car over and found the driver was local solicitor Douglas “call me Doug” Winning.
A true man of style, Winning was wearing only a pair of shorts. His vehicle had sustained damage on the bonnet and a front tyre. When asked that he had been drinking, Winning nominated the amount as “a bottle of rum”, explaining that he had had a sleep since finishing it. He was slurring his words. He twice said “You’re not going to pinch me”.

In December, American actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty by a jury of falsely reporting a hate crime against himself.
He claimed two racist Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats beat him up. It turned out he had paid two Nigerian brothers to stage the whole thing so that he could pretend to be a victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime.
