This is a follow-up to the two previous posts on the Bill Shorten rape investigation. Below is also a video where I have interviewed members of the public in relation to our right to know about the police investigation and should Bill Shorten address the public on the issue.
The above video is also on YouTube. (Click here to watch on YouTube)
The specific evidence below is currently unchallenged by Bill Shorten expect for a general denial of rape.
In 1985 the alleged victim joined the Labor Party and had the fastest growing Young Labor group in Victoria and she attracted people in Melbourne. Bill Shorten and 2 others went to Wodonga to see her. In 1986 at the age of 16 she was elected to the Rural Policy Committee and became a delegate for state and national conferences.
In 1986 she went to a Young Labor camp near Geelong and Bill Shorten assigned the sleeping arrangements. The victim was alone. At about 4am there was a knock at her door and she thought it was her friend Kim. Bill Shorten had been chasing the victim around all night and she thought she had finally got rid of him but it was him at the door.
Bill Shorten pushed her into the bathroom, up against the towel rail, pulled down her pants and raped her.
A few months later the victim confided in a friend that she had been raped at the camp. (Click here to read more)
What does Bill Shorten have to say about the allegations? Not much except for the standard denial via his lawyer. And as regular readers know he refused to answer the questions that I emailed him. (Click here to read the questions and the post)
But he does not deny any specifics such as knocking on her door at 4am and having sex with her.
The unchallenged fact that Bill Shorten allocated the sleeping arrangements and put the victim by herself does support an argument of premeditation by Bill Shorten? In other words he planned the rape.
Political conspiracy theory
Some people are saying it is a political conspiracy but that is not supported by any evidence whatsoever and I do not believe it for a minute. And it is a big call to suggest someone would commit the crime of making a false complaint of rape to the police for political benefit. The alleged victim’s complaint is totally consistent with the evidence of other victims that has come to light in the current Royal Commission into child abuse where they have waited many years before coming forward.
As any crisis manager will tell you Mr Shorten had no option but to make a public statement and address the allegations when they were first made and the fact that he has not makes him look very guilty.
Any time a serious allegation is made against a politician the Australian public have a right to know as far as this site is concerned. I will be following up on the above story.
