John Barilaro’s last shreds of credibility have been destroyed this week with evidence given at the NSW Parliament inquiry but what has been overlooked so far is what role his mistress Jennifer Lugsdin played and what benefits she received. Barilaro has resigned from the $500,000 New York job position but there are still at least 4 inquiries, 2 government and 2 NSW ICAC, that are still afoot and below is relevant evidence that all the media are refusing to report, so I will.
This article is a follow-up from last week’s article: “John Barilaro’s fraud, theft and sexual affairs likely to take down NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet” which starts off “John Barilaro’s dodgy appointment to a $500,000 NSW Government job in New York will face an NSW Parliament Upper House inquiry on Wednesday next week (29/6/22) but the media are failing to report some key facts of corruption.” (Click here to read the article)
Jennifer Lugsdin worked directly for John Barilaro for 2 years then moved to Investment NSW for 5 months from August 2021 until December 2021 when her affair with John Barilaro was exposed in the media and she left immediately. Below is a screenshot of her LinkedIn page:
A few questions:
- When Jennifer Lugsdin worked at Investment NSW, which is the department that gave John Barilaro the $500,000 New York job, from August 2021 to December 2021 did she help or communicate with John Barilaro regarding the New York role?
- How did Jennifer Lugsdin get her role at Investment NSW and was anyone there aware that she was John Barilaro’s mistress? Who in the government was aware that it was blatant corruption for Jennifer Lugsdin to take the role given she was in a relationship with John Barilaro?
- Was Jennifer Lugsdin going to benefit financially if John Barilaro had gone to New York? E.g. Would she have gone with Barilaro and would she have been employed by Barilaro, on the government’s payroll, in the New York office?
Below is the article from December 2021 that outed Jennifer Lugsdin as John Barilaro’s “new partner” and she left her Senior Media Advisor role at Investment NSW. Who knew what and when? That is a question Investment NSW CEO Amy Brown should have been asked when she gave evidence on Wednesday (29/6/22) at the NSW Parliament inquiry.
Below is the video I published on Friday (1/7/22) about this matter which also has video of John Barilaro ducking and weaving at NSW ICAC about his “intimate personal relationships”. The video also adds other relevant information to this article:
NSW Parliament inquiry
The NSW Parliament held a public hearing on Wednesday which was the first day of their continuing investigation into John Barilaro’s appointment to the $500,000 job. Barilaro was smashed in all the media, especially social media, as it was revealed by the only witness, Investment NSW CEO Amy Brown, that Barilaro had set up the job and withdrawn the job offer from the candidate who had been offered the role. And then Amy Brown offered Barilaro the job after another “independent recruitment process”.
After Amy Brown’s performance giving evidence under oath, the stenches of corruption could be smelt around the globe and social media unloaded. I posted the below two messages on Twitter as well as others:
The NSW Parliament inquiry resumes next week and is quite broad as it says on their website “This inquiry was self-referred on 23 June 2022 to inquire into and report on the appointment of Mr John Barilaro as Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner to the Americas and any other related matter.” (Click here to see it on the government website)
I have no doubt that Jennifer Lugsdin’s relationship with John Barilaro would be covered by “any other related matter”. So, how about you the readers click on the link here and email the MP’s overseeing the inquiring asking that they look into the John Barilaro / Jennifer Lugsdin relationship to see if any corruption happened.
