SEX FIEND BUSTED: Rose Sophie Mirabella surrounded by thorns, including a sex fiend staffer


Sophie Mirabella MP has acted quickly to sack one of her staff who has been accused of being a sex fiend by women attending Parliament’s Mid-Winter Ball.

Family friend Tony Scrinis who started work with Mirabella just weeks ago following the Luke Barnes sacking saga has been turfed out after a dozen complaints centering on Scrinis’s enthusiasm for unauthorised breast-fondling were made to the presiding officers and to Mrs Mirabella herself.

Scrinis has run as a candidate for the Port Phillip Council, bravely declaring himself a climate change sceptic, and making a series of candid admissions on his quirky website.

The Mirabella family friend had previously been involved in making videos and building a website for the Liberal member of parliament. Scrinis, who is the nephew of the managing director and publisher of Greek language weekly Neos Kosmos, Dimitri Gogos, resigned this afternoon and disputes some of the sex fiend groping allegations made against him.

  3. I do hope that Princess Sophie herself was not one of the ‘gropees’!

    Mind you in that outfit she’d be hard to resist…..

    Poor Tony. Poor Luke! We consevatives have so much love to give, that sometimes we give it in all the wrong places. Of course being in proximity to Mirabella the Magnificent clouds mens’ minds. It’s like the argonauts sailing too close to the sirens.

  10. Who am I?

    I came 3rd in a preselection against Marie Luckins.

    I set up a failed business called International Careers Pty Ltd in a tax haven.

    The peak of my political career was as an adviser for the Bronwyn for PM campaign.

    My only experience as a campaign manager before becoming State Director was campaign director and strategist for the losing Monash Province campaign in 2002.

    My closest political associate is Santo Santoro.

    I lost a state election.

    I deliberately sabotaged the Prahran campaign, removing central funding for factional reasons.

    I was part of the losing team for the last Federal election.

    I gave the IT contract for 104 to a company Dan Feldman’s was a director of, without going to tender. Dan Feldman subsequently had to leave his law firm.

    I leased part of 104 Exhibition Street – a direct legacy of Robert Menzies – to Tolarno Galleries, who displayed Bill Henson’s child porn in the Liberal Party’s own building.

    I corruptly breached the Electoral Act, using the threat of pulling the party polling contract to get two people fired.

    I asked staff to blog against the State Leader, then when it came out, I knifed them as publically as I could to try and rat out of it.

    When the blog affair came out, I denied even knowing about the blog – lying to Ted Baillieu, Tony Nutt, David Kemp, the media and the party. In actuality, I had been bragging about the blog I had tacitly authorised for months – including in December to Don Nardella MP, who has since put the facts on the record in parliament. http://www.theage.com.au/national/liberal-chief-under-pressure-over-blog-20080528-2j3u.html

    I undertook a secret deal with DPA Document Printing Australia Pty Ltd to re-employ Chandler for the Liberal Party, in a cruel hoax on the Party and the Jewish community.

    I left 104 Exhibition Street in a burning wreck, having lost both the State and Federal Campaign managers in a fortnight of the worst media coverage in the Party’s history.

    I tarnished the reputation of the Higgins 200 Club by associating it with donations from the aged care industry extracted by Santo Santoro.

    Both my first and second wives are better at politics than me.

    I have been unemployed for over a year.

    I tell people I am an “accountant/ corporate accountant” despite no longer holding proper professional registrations to do such work.

    I am not very popular amongst the branch members in Higgins.

  11. Sophie is useless, potty mouthed, hypocritical, and doesnt give a toss about voters or issues. It’s all about the fat ugly glory and boringly displaying her phobias and isms in order to win votes and support. Would the real Sophie please stand up? But, please, no more annoying crazy loud mouthed drama yelling. It’s so ugly.

    We all wait for her demise. Australian poltics and Aussies deserve a break….from the likes of the bitter, mean-spirited insincere Sophie.

    Vote 1: remove Sophie from parliament, or Malcolm needs to be punished at the polls to clean up his ship.

  12. The Libs only chance of success is to rid themselves of nutters like Sophie

  13. Maybe sophie can ask her very good friend Inga for hiring advice. They both are inclined to pick winners. Or, perhaps they choose those that they are ‘comfortable’ with?

  14. How timely that this smut happens in the very week that Liberal women from all over Australia converge in Melbourne for the Women in Politics event. There’ll be hundreds of smart, successful young women turning up to debate (and, I expect, to enjoy a chardonnay) asking themselves why any woman would put their hand up for the type of above crap that is dished out. Sophie, you looked lovely.

  15. Who am I, 0.33, my guess is that you are the filth otherwise known as J-Rat, or by the name Julian Sheezel.

  16. Rat Dog Riva is indeed filth. However, Rat Dog Riva makes J-Rat look like the fountain of political integrity by comparison.

    Quite apart from your wonderful record, I think there are already one too many Julians in the Federal Parliament.

  25. Is Sophie traveling so poorly that she has to borrow one of Therese Rein’s frocks to go to the Ball.You’d have thought that she would have at least had it taken in so it fitted a bit better.

  36. Sometimes…I really wonder if you people are Human. Some of the above comments are simply disgusting.

  37. Well, as a non-human I can say I am unfettered by the constrictive bonds of human society.

    Although the actions of Scrinis are appalling, I must admit to dabbling in a few mucky ponds myself over the years.

    What about you, Dark Horse? Are you pure? Or have you been caught nibbling someone else’s hay?

  39. I am just amazed that the party is still hanging onto Sophie.
    An article by one of the news services suggesting that her choice of staffers reveals how little she actually cares about the substance and aims of her portfolio seems to be right on the money.
    News has it that she has been campaigning vigorously for a sexier/less dull portfolio in the next re-shuffle.
    Malcolm could not be serious about a new look fresh party if he gave it to her. One of the news services reported that she allegedly used a video in her presentation today that was made be the groping staffer. How disgenuine is that?
    If Turnbull wants the PMs scalp over this car affair, then it is only consistent in principle that he has Sophie’s scalp over the mismanagement of her office and what it reveals about her serious lack of judgement.
    It’s time to leave politics Sophie, you are the weakest and possibly also, missing link.

  40. Yeh, give her the flick. Honestly, what is Malcolm thinking?

  41. Sophie bares a scary resemblance to Olive from that UK series ‘On the Buses’. see the link below; hairstyle, pudgy same shaped-face etc.

  42. Well… I haven’t ‘nibbled somebody elses hay’ so to speak. I may have upset people from time to time, but nothing compared to the disgusting conduct shown in here.

    It really is shameful.

    And Horny Duck…you really need to show yourself more respect, if you think pretending to be an animal is clever.

    Posted by Dark Horse | June 20, 2009, 1:23
  43. Dark Horse…for god’s sake lighten up!

    Take that pole from out your butt and have a chuckle.

  44. There are some fine looking lasses at the Convention Centre today. I wonder if any of them need a lift home?

    Go Joshy! Two fine young stallions like us should go to King Street after the preselection. There are some places there with lasses with little by way of clothing!
