Federal parliament reaches a new low with the appointment of fraudster, thief and former bankrupt Kimberley Kitching to replace the retiring Senator Stephen Conroy. Kitching is so disliked in her own party she has failed on at least 3 other attempts to become a federal politician and that was even with the support of Bill Shorten.
Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you realise how bad things are and Kimberley Kitching’s appointment will help many voters realise how bad the Labor Party are under Bill Shorten’s leadership.
Bill Shorten says in relation to Kimberley Kitching “she’s been fighting for the rights of workers for a long time” when the reality is that she has helped steal millions of dollars from the Victorian Number 1 Branch of the Health Services Union (HSU), also known as the HWU, who are some of lowest paid workers in Australia. Kitching is the the new Craig Thomson of the federal Labor Party because like Thomson she stole from the HSU and like Thomason she will help destroy the Labor Party’s credibility at a federal level.
We’re getting 2 crooks for the price of one as her grubby husband Andrew Landeryou is guaranteed to land in Canberra and straight onto the public gravy train as one of Kitching’s advisors or office manager. Although the main thing Landeryou will be doing in Canberra is working out what scams to run to rip off the Australian public.
What makes Kimberley Kitching unique is that she is more despised in her own political party than the opposition.
Kimberley Kitching has a long criminal history. Some of her crimes are:
- She has been busted perjuring herself at the Trade Union Royal Commission and had criminal charges recommended against her in 2015. (Click here to read more)
- She was caught perjuring herself at the Fair Work Commission in 2015. (Click here to read more)
- She worked at the HSU for about 2 years (2012-2014) as general manager but never did anything except steal a wage of over $120,000 and use the Union’s resources in her attempts to enter parliament.
- Kitching also aided and abetted the looting of the Union by her husband Andrew Landeryou and the Union’s secretary Diana Asmar and her husband David Asmar. (Click here to read more)
- She was forced into bankruptcy after her and her husband stole millions from billionaire Solomon Lew. (Click here to read more)
- Kitching was meant to be the Company Secretary at one of her husbands companies which went bankrupt but there were no financial records kept or they disappeared. (Click here to read more)
- Some people say that Kitching shouldn’t be criticised for what her husband does but she works as a crime team with her husband Landeryou and has to take a fair share of responsibility for their crimes.
- Kitching has distributed dirt sheets to defame other Labor Party candidates every time she has run for pre-selection. (Click here to read more)
Kitching’s affair with Andrew Bolt
In 2013/2014 News Corp journalist Andrew Bolt was using his TV show pushing for Kimberley Kitching to be preselected for another Senate spot. It was widely rumoured that Kitching and Bolt had an affair when Landeryou fled overseas from Australian authorities in 2004/05. Bolt has never denied the affair and I wrote to him asking questions in 2014 but he never responded.
The affair is about the only thing that would explain why Bolt promotes a fraudster and thief like Kitching. Below is a video where Bolt admitted supporting Kitchings Senate bid in 2013.
Kimberley Kitching and Andrew Landeryou get a lot of support from Andrew Bolt and other News Corp journalists like Political Editor for the Herald Sun James Campbell who in effect aid and abet Kitching and Landeryou in their fraud and theft.
The crimes of Kitching’s husband Andrew Landeryou
From The Age in 2005:
When runaway businessman Andrew Landeryou finally comes home he’s going to have a lot to answer for, report Leonie Wood and David Elias.
There is a bank account in Melbourne that authorities are watching very closely. Every so often, someone draws off a few thousand dollars. A bit gets sent here, a bit there. And once the money runs out, the authorities believe that runaway businessman Andrew Landeryou will return to Australia.
The Arrowhead Media bank account, and the way it is being managed, bear all the hallmarks of Landeryou’s curious business dealings. There are front men, false names, bogus directors and a chain of money transfers that crisscross the world.
Landeryou, 35, fled the country in early December, dumping a $3 million debt on his wife, former Melbourne City councillor Kimberley Kitching, and his father, Bill, once a state government minister and for many years a powerful union leader and numbers man for the right wing of the ALP.
Kitching filed for bankruptcy this week. She claims she does not know where her husband is, nor if he will return. But when he does, he faces arrest.
Landeryou has managed to maintain a surprisingly low profile, despite his political pedigree and some high-powered business connections. He fled just before he was due to step into the Victorian Supreme Court to account for his involvement in the tangled affairs of the failed Melbourne University Student Union and answer allegations that he profited from its questionable deals.
However, the big debt that has landed on his family stems from a bitter row with a man just as unforgiving: retail tycoon Solomon Lew who, Kitching says, attended their wedding. Landeryou and Lew fell out when online gaming and statistics company IQ Corp failed, leaving no books, no records and no trace of Lew’s $4 million investment. (Click here to read more)
That is some of the background of Andrew Landeryou who will be working his magic (crimes) in Canberra in a few weeks with his wife Kimberley as the new Federal Senator. Landeryou was arrested the day of the last federal election for criminal offences undermining the election process trying to help federal MP Michael Danby. I wonder what offences Landeryou committed making sure his wife had the numbers to be selected by the ALP.
Andrew Landeryou denies Kimberley Kitching is his wife
During the Trade Union Royal Commission in 2014 Andrew Landeryou was asked on Twitter if Kimberley Kitching was his wife. He replied: “Never heard of her” When a husband has to deny his wife is his wife something is badly wrong.
Landeryou and Kitching have a list of enemies that is a mile long
Bill Shorten has self exploded and made federal parliament a circus by bringing on clowns Senator Kimberley Kitching and her husband Andrew Landeryou.
When Kimberley Kitching enters parliament the temptation for her and her husband’s many enemies will be too much and political payback like we have never seen before will start. Previously they never received much personal publicity with their political fights but now she is a federal Senator there will national attention on her and her husband. Kitching and Landeryou are too stupid to control themselves and change their ways and it should be only a few months, possibly before Christmas, before we see them involved in their first corruption scandal in federal parliament.
