Whitehorse councillor Peter Allan has today admitted corruptly claiming expenses from the council. His side of the story is that ratepayers had paid for his use of strippers but VEXNEWS understands that he had previously confessed to buying sexual intercourse at council expense.
We have learned that the bill was for nearly $200.
Allan appears to have lied to the Sunday Herald Sun about it. He visited a strip club in Fyshwick, according to today’s Sunday Herald Sun.
Capital insiders report that Fyshwick – the location nominated by Allan to the Sunday Herald Sun – is in fact a major hub for the city’s brothels.
Indeed a search on “brothel Fyshwick” leads to a facility called Northside Studios that professes to be “Canberra’s largest brothel with the biggest choice of ladies”.
Perhaps the old-timer Councillor was attracted by this exciting offer:
A $10 discount applies to all Pensioners,Disabled persons and Seniors card holders, just show card and ask for the discount.
Allan would not have struggled to find entertainment in Canberra’s stretch of sin. Another brothel “Parlour-ment House” was popular until it was burned to the ground in suspicious circumstances.
In a disturbingly detailed account of the sex industry in Canberra, it explains that Canberra’s brothels are in either Fyshwick or Mitchell.
Only a serious investigation into Allan’s fraudulent expense claims can give ratepayers comfort that there hasn’t been widespread embezzlement of the council’s funds by Peter Allan, a former bank manager who left NAB recently in circumstances he still hasn’t explained.
The Sunday Herald Sun reports that the alleged fraud will be referred to Victoria Police, the Ombudsman and the Minister for Local Government for them to investigate.
He could be charged with fraud related offences and sacked.
