PYNE IN DENIALAnother day, another denial:

The Australian has been told that on Saturday, June 22, 2013, Pyne, the boss of the left faction of the Liberal Party in South Australia, rang Peter Gandolfi, a mayor in the South Australian electorate of Barker, and asked him to run as an independent against Tony Pasin … the Liberal candidate…

It doesn’t get much dirtier than asking someone to run as an independent to win a federal seat at the expense of your own party because the preselected Liberal candidate is a conservative…

Pyne told The Australian yesterday that “it’s not true”. Yet Pyne’s suggestion to Gandolfi has been reported to The Australian by a few sources…

All scurrilous rumours, no doubt.
