James Ashby won’t tell us who’s funding his sexual harassment litigation against Speaker Peter Slipper. WIth his legal costs estimated at $500,000, it’s time for answers. We also look at the sheer folly of $50,000 in taxpayers’ funds being paid to the gutter-snipe whose own paid shrink thinks behaved in a “provocative and sexualised” manner in the workplace. UPDATE: Sources tell VEXNEWS that the number Ashby’s lawyers cited in discussions with the Commonwealth as having been expended on legal costs is $1.2 million. Even allowing for traditional padding, that’s a huge amount for anyone to fund.
