The federal MP for the very marginal seat of LaTrobe Jason Wood has fondly remembered his former squeeze conwoman Jodie Harris as “a breath of fresh air” in today’s Herald Sun.
ONE-WOMAN CRIME SPREE
Harris was the odd conwoman who pretended to be a policewoman on occasion to steal money from people and who had serially dated policemen. She stole hundreds of thousands of dollars that way before being busted and sentenced to years of imprisonment in Victoria and other states.
The parliamentarian and former counter-terror cop who famously and repeatedly confused his ‘organisms’ with his ‘orgasms’ in a late-night speech in the House of Representatives appears to have scored quite a few from the eccentric woman and cop-groupie.
Some of the least likely objects of affection in political circles appear to be able to maintain a Charles Manson-esque level of young political female groupie-love so if it’s possible for them we don’t see why the boys in blue who risk their lives to keep us safe every day should be denied.
WOODY REMEMBERS PAST ENCOUNTERS OF THE SKANK KIND
Wood – who will perhaps be used as a case study for why a good no-comment can be a superior option to chatting the day away with pesky scribes – has told the Hun’s Paul Anderson that the convicted serial conwoman was “a breath of fresh air” around the stations he worked at in the early 1990s. No doubt she was.
He explained she operated under a different name back then. But of course a rose by any other name would surely smell as sweet.
“Jodie Harris was under a different name and she used to come around, for example, (to) East Melbourne and Russell St police stations, I regarded her as a casual acquaintance.”
Very casual. You could of course drive a divvy van through such a non-denial denial. She was perhaps filed under “Booty call” on his speed-dial. What a heartless brute, willing to give her one out the back but not willing to buy her a meal afterwards:
“I never went out with her,” he insisted.
It seems he didn’t have to in order to take full advantage of her services. A bit sad really. The parliamentarian says as much:
“She was infatuated with all police members.She would come across as the world’s nicest girl . . . (but) I never had a relationship with her. Definitely not.”
No, not a relationship. She used cops to be able to perfect her crimes. And they used her in the manner of a town bike. Not nice.
THE TRUTH IS ONLY A PRISON VISIT AWAY
Hopefully if the honourable member’s non-denial denial of over-the-counter love isn’t satisfactory to Jodie Harris, an enterprising member of the press will make their way in to see her where she is currently a guest of Her Majesty and Minister Bob Cameron to get her perspective.
That would be a breath of fresh air.
