•Mistress claimed that he used government funds to conduct a two-year affair
•She wrote to state parliament Speaker Fiona Simpson detailing their trysts
•Allegedly sent picture of his penis in a glass of red wine, self-shot image of his crotch while wearing boxer shorts, and full frontal picture of his genitalia
An Australian politician has resigned after he was caught sexting lewd pictures to his mistress. Married Peter Dowling, a member of Queensland state's ruling conservative Liberal National Party, has also been accused of using government funds to conduct a two-year affair.
The woman claiming to be his mistress wrote to state parliament Speaker Fiona Simpson detailing their trysts.
Dowling has been with wife Helen for 27 years and they have two children together, reported the Huffington Post. But, the mistress said that she had been assured his marriage was just for show and that he intended to leave her after the 2015 election. She added that she was just one of many woman the politician had an affair with.
The Courier-Mail has also claimed that it has access to: ‘Several explicit text messages sent from Mr. Dowling's mobile phone to the woman, including a picture of his penis in a glass of red wine, a self-shot image of his crotch while wearing boxer shorts, and a full frontal picture of his genitalia.’ ...
A senior government official told The Australian that he couldn’t understand how a ‘smart’ man like Dowling could do that. He added: ‘Taking a picture of your penis in a glass of red isn't the smartest thing you could do, and I won't be accepting any invitation from him in the future to go for a drink.’
This comes after New York Mayoral candidate Anthony Wiener was discovered sexting and sending lewd pictures of himself to a 22-year-old. ...Full story at the Daily Mail
