Reporter Accuses Senior Aussie Politician Of Inappropriately Touching Her

Nov 8, 2018


A journalist has released a statement claiming NSW opposition leader Luke Foley put his hand in her underpants at a Christmas party in 2016.

According to Ashleigh Raper:

“He stood next to me. He put his hand through a gap in the back of my dress and inside my underpants. He rested his hand on my buttocks. I completely froze.”

Ms Raper says Mr Foley contacted her last weekend and apologised.

“He told me that he had wanted to talk to me about that night on many occasions over the past two years because, while he was drunk and couldn’t remember all the details of the night, he knew he did something to offend me,” Ms Raper alleged.

“He apologised again and told me, ‘I’m not a philanderer, I’m not a groper, I’m just a drunk idiot’.”
