News Corp commentator Andrew Bolt has been using his TV show The Bolt Report to aid and abet his friend and alleged former sexual partner Kimberley Kitching in committing fraud and theft at the HSU and trying to boost her political career.
This has been happening for over a year and peaked a couple of weeks ago on the 26th of August when Ms Kitching had her criminal conduct raised at the Trade Union Royal Commission. The criminal allegations include but are not limited to, bullying, fraud and theft and running a “Right of Entry” exam racket. A few days later on Sunday the 31st of August Andrew Bolt had Kimberley Kitching on his show and failed to ask her questions on his show about the alleged criminal conduct raised at the Royal Commission.
Kimberley Kitching and her Husband Andrew Landeryou have a long criminal history of fraud and theft so Andrew Bolt’s strange relationship with Kitching has not been missed by his supporters and has caused substantial comment on social media. For example comments on Twitter and websites etc have included:
“No mention of the allegations against Kitching in #turc re running a right of entry permit racket on @theboltreport10 this morning.”
and: “And today’s guest with no credibility is – Kimberley Kitching”

The only thing that seems to explain the partnership is the rumoured sexual relationship between Bolt and Kitching. There have been rumours flying around for a long time that Andrew Bolt and Kimberley Kitching had a sexual relationship in 2004/2005 when Kitching’s husband Andrew Landeryou was on the run avoiding authorities. Landeryou did a runner to Costa Rica for 6 months just before he was due to give evidence regarding $2.5million he stole from the Melbourne University Union. (Click here to read more)
While Landeryou was away Kimberley Kitching is alleged to have had a sexual relationship with Andrew Bolt. I wrote to Andrew Bolt as per below over a week ago and he has not responded :

Dear Mr Bolt
There is widespread allegations that you had a sexual relationship with Kimberley Kitching when her husband, Andrew Landeryou, was on the run in Costa Rica for fraud in 2004/05. Can you confirm this? Or would you like to make a comment?
Some people are surmising that is the reason why you promote Ms Kitching on your TV show, The Bolt Report and fail to ask her questions about her alleged corrupt conduct. Is that true?
Also regarding Kimberley Kitching and the Trade Union Royal Commission:
- Why have you not raised on your show the fact that Kimberley Kitching has had adverse findings made against her by the Fair Work Commission?
- Why have you not raised the fact the Kimberley Kitching has been accused of bullying at the Trade Union Royal Commission?
- Why have you not raised the allegations made at the royal commission against Kitching that she ran a right of entry permit scam in her capacity of General Manager of the HSU Victoria #1 Branch?

I also posted the above email in the comment section of Andrew Bolt’s blog last Thursday. I have not had a response to that either.
Why Andrew Bolt has a duty to come clean to his supporters and the general public about his true relationship with Kimberley Kitching.
1. Everyone knows that Kimberley Kitching is ripping off the Health Services Union. So what Bolt is doing is a criminal offence and breaches numerous laws. For starters Andrew Bolt could be charged with concealment of a crime, aiding and abetting fraud and theft and/or conspiracy to commit fraud and theft. If Bolt had raised the allegations against Kitching on his show and said he did not believe them then that would be a different situation. But Bolt has not done that so he has no excuse for his criminal conduct in aiding and abetting Kimberley Kitching.
2. What makes it even worse is that the HSU is having an election so Bolt is giving Kitching an opportunity to go on his show and say what a great job she is doing at the HSU. Yet he fails to ask her about the corruption allegations raised against her at the Royal Commission so the voters at the HSU do not know. Why does Bolt give her a platform to push her lies without revealing the very serious allegations against her? Is Andrew Bolt blinded by love? Bolt also fails to ask Kitching about the corruption allegations made against Diana Asmar who is the Secretary of the HSU Victoria #1 branch.
3. As you will see below the Fair Work Commission has made adverse findings against Kimberley Kitching and Diana Asmar and yet Andrew Bolt helps Kitching conceal this from the HSU voters by failing to ask questions.
4. News Corp who is Bolt’s main employer would have to be extremely embarrassed that Bolt has Kitching on his show on a regular basis. While it is not their TV show, Bolt is well known for his association and employment with News Corp and it would reflect poorly on them as well.
5. Both News Corp and Fairfax asked Michael Smith about his relationship with Kathy Jackson and alleged they might be more than friends. Michael Smith was more than happy to answer their questions and he denied the relationship. So if Smith can answer the media questions why can’t Bolt. (Click here to read more)
6. Andrew Bolt has a media watch style segment on his TV show which highlights bias in the media. Yet he will not answer allegations of his own bias on his own show.
7. If he continues to have Kimberley Kitching on his show without asking the hard questions he will do a lot of damage to his and his employer’s reputation.
The Kitching and Landeryou stalking campaign – With the support of Andrew Bolt and Bill Shorten
Kimberley Kitching’s husband Andrew Landeryou trolls on Twitter running a protection and advertising racket for Kitching and his mate Bill Shorten. He attacks, stalks and harasses anyone who dares questions Kitching and her actions. He is letting everyone, including the media, know not to question or criticise Kitching or otherwise he will trash their reputation.
Amazingly Mr Landeryou denied that Kimberley Kitching was his wife when asked on twitter on Tuesday (16/9/14) as per below:
It is a sad situation when a husband denies that his wife is his wife.
When Landeryou responded to the above Tweet from @Misty_Bella “Is Kimberley Kitching your wife? and replied “Never heard of her”, the reply also went to @australian which is the News Corp owned The Australian newspaper. So Landeryou was also lying to the media that he did not know his wife.
Both Andrew Landeryou and his wife Kimberley Kitching have been named at the Royal Commission again this week for their fraud and theft. That might explain why Landeryou denied that Kitching was his wife as he does not want people to know the connection and that they work as a criminal team. Then again maybe he has left her because of her sexual relationship with Andrew Bolt.
Stephen Mayne has written on the Landeryou-Kitching crime partnership a number of times.
“For mine, Shorten is completely inappropriate and unelectable as Labor leader until he publically denounces the sleaze, defamation, concoctions, standover tactics and skulduggery that Landeryou deploys with Shorten’s support.” (Click here to read more)
“Where Landeryou goes, filth and dirty pool follows, so was anyone surprised that the Gellibrand preselection contest quickly descended into the sewer?” and in relation to Kitching and Landeryou “people like Joan Kirner, Steve Bracks, Nicola Roxon are working hard to put them out of business?” (Click here to read more)
Kitching and Landeryou are hated by many in their own party and are the sleaze and smear Queen and King of the Labor Party.
Landeryou even physically stalks people as youth worker Les Twentyman found out a couple of years ago and had to resort to taking out a court issued intervention order in 2012 to keep Landeryou away from him and his family. (Click here to read more)
I get my fair share of abuse from Landeryou given I have written numerous posts on him and his wife. I wrote a post in July last year before the federal election titled “Does Kevin Rudd support the Bill Shorten backed “Kimberley Kitching for Senate movement”? Andrew Bolt does!“ (Click here to read more)
Then a couple of weeks ago on the 20th August I wrote about Kitching and Landeryou’s close relationship and collusion with Labor leader Bill Shorten in a post titled “Bill Shorten uses internet trolls to try to blackmail & intimidate media reporting the Union Royal Commission”. (Click here to read)
And recently I wrote about what will be their undoing “Commissioner Dyson Heydon handed down written reasons for a number of applications made during the HSU hearings last week. Based on that, 2 witnesses from last week Diana Asmar and Kimberley Kitching for the HSU Victoria #1 Branch, are in a lot of trouble. Commissioner Heydon stated on page 5 of his judgment in relation to the Fair Work Commission: “On 26 March 2014, 15 Notices of Adverse or Potentially Adverse Findings were served on various officeholders or former officeholders of the Victoria No. 1 Branch (including the applicants).” The applicants Heydon refers to are Diana Asmar and Kimberley Kitching who were doing everything they could to make sure that the adverse finding by the FWC were not revealed at the Royal Commission.” (Click here to read the judgment)
Andrew Bolt needs to wake-up to himself fast. He is no better than the union fraudsters and thieves he claims to be against. Bolt’s own supporters are starting to criticise him because they can see what a hypocrite he is given his dodgy relationship with Kimberley Kitching.
