PRO HIT: HSU’s evil empire used prostitutes to destroy enemies says MP

HsukathyjacksonThere’s a lot we don’t yet know about what really went on in the dark, dank, dirty sewer of the HSU. Claims have emerged their dirty tricks department specialised in the nasty and exotic.

Craig Thomson points out to the Daily Telegraph the bungling Fair Work Australia’s investigation appears incomplete despite taking years and years:

“I made it clear to Fair Work Australia that there was fraud against me. We had identified two witnesses who identified a union official who threatened in 2004 to have set me up with prostitutes, to do me over,” he said.

“Not only was it just said … it was written up and reported and was sent to FWA.

“The premise was to destroy (Thomson’s) political ambitions and set him up with a bunch of hookers.

“We know they (FWA) did not interview these people.

“We think there has been a systematic attempt to get me … and it involved (Mr) Williamson. He was complicit in it, not necessarily active in it.”

How can it be that Fair Work Australia didn’t investigate such a serious claim against the union, corroborated with witnesses?

Current HSU leadership, Kathy Jackson denies all, indeed, she’s been relatively quiet this week, struck dumb with fear perhaps over now furiously denied 7 News reports that Victoria Police raided the HSU Credit Union, which has notoriously lent Jackson very large sums to support her multi-million dollar property portfolio, Mike Williamson isn’t so sure:

“I cannot recall that at all. I’d be close to saying I never said it,” Mr Williamson said.

But he did confirm he had been told by a former senior Labor MP that a member of the Victorian branch of the HSU had admitted to at least attempting to use prostitutes to snare Mr Thomson.

“I have to say, anything is possible. It would not appear to be an unusual practice in Victoria (HSU),” he said.

Now released from Labor’s caucus control, Craig Thomson is now able to speak up for himself after many months of stoic silence. His side of the story promises to be interesting.

  2. One of the more intriguing aspects of this whole sorry affair is the media’s unquestioning acceptance of Jackson’s many denials of personal wrong doing. During an SMH profile she admitted to having a history of lying. Given the devastating effect of her allegations not only the HSU but on the national government, you would think the media might have at least probed her own integrity.

  3. This is the NSW HSU that Thompson is complaining about. If so why didn’t he go to the ACTU or NSW Police when he was a union official if he were being compromised by others in NSW?

    Was the Vice President of the National ALP organisation, who was caught by the AFP recently with a bag of documents in the NSW HSU car park, involved?

    Perhaps “Vice” Presidents in the ALP has a completely different meaning in the ALP.

    Incidentally Kathy Jackson was not/is not part of the NSW HSU either.

  10. sitting a senior union official salary of 270k how was it that Jackson was not aware of the union finances , debt projections, asset position , and overall basic governance procedures after she decided , without member endorsement, or vote , to amalgamate and create the new larger HSU East branch with Williamson and herself at the helm ? Given that $270k was part of that deal what tangible benefit , other then to her own financial position and her election campaign (admission made on TV as being a direct beneficiery of Williamson’s $$ support) was the amalgamation to achieve for the Victorian membership?

    Hopefully she will address this and many other tough questions such as being called a “unionist” at her HR Nicholls speech debut.

  16. wonder who he will name in parliament, bet both the Jacksons will be named and also Williamson.
    We all know how the Jackson did Pauline Fegan over for the National Secretary and Thomson said he strongly opposed her appointment. Jeff went to Seeless and Hudson to get them to change their vote from Fegan to Miss Perfect Jackson, and then all the shit started.

  22. Oakes-Thomson interview was as reminder how sociopath’s convincingly try to replace reality with their own absurd fantasy. In the interview Thomson displayed a manipulative nature, pathological lying, no shame or guilt or remorse. Irresponsibility in his actions, a tendency for promiscuous sexual behaviour, a parasitic life existence. Thomson does not perceive that he has done anything wrong and exhibits a grandiose sense of self. It’s these personality types that all too often perpetrate heinous crimes against the vulnerable and the young, never confess to their crimes and often rot in jail on life terms with out ever divulging as to where their victims are hidden. Like Thomson they live in a fantasy world of their own making.

  23. Michael Lawler was appointed to FWA by Tony Abbott back in the Howard days.
    Michael Lawler is Kathy Jackson’s boyfriend/partner/lover.
    Michael Lawler failed to ensure that the witness Craig Thomson put forward was interviewed as part of that investigation. Three years and they didn’t bother?
    Kathy Jackson’s former husband Jeff Jackson was employed by HSU until 2009 and has been accused of retaining a car HSU provided to him during his employment.
    Kathy Jackson has been all over the media for months now screeching about her desire to destroy Craig Thomson and anyone else she doen’t much like the look of.
    Kathy Jackson earns mega-bucks.
    Michael Williamson and Kathy Jackson are either deadly foes or as close as two peas in a pod, depending on who you talk to.
    The HSU Credit Union is said to have made substantial loans to Ms Jackson to allow her to maintain the lifestyle to which she thinks she is entitled. No-one is too sure about how/when/if these have been repaid.
    Craig Thomson has always said he was innocent of all allegations.
    Craig Thomson, now free from the restraints imposed by being a member of the Labor caucus, can at last tell it the way he sees it.
    It’s not hard if you move in the right circles, to obtain ID, credit cards, drivers licences etc in a name that is not your own.
    It is not beyond the bounds of possibility to think that maybe someone with a grudge or sixty against Thomson (maybe he was going to blow the whistle on that celebrated whistleblower K Jackson) would set him up.
    Setting up Craig Thomson would not be hard, you’d just need the fake plastic and a few henchmen willing to pretend to be Craig at a lot of brothels and fine dining establishments, all at company expense. (Gee, it must have been hard getting anyone to do that part).
    Craig says he was interstate on at least one of the dates he was supposed to have been frolicking courtesy of HSU.
    Craig has been looking remarkably calm and unflustered lately, not at all like a bloke about to be found guilt of the treasonable offence of visiting a prostitute – or six.
    Kathy Jackson looks and sounds more maniacal every day.

    I don’t believe Jeff Jackson set Craig up with hookers but he definitely threatened to destroy his political ambitions after Craig made allegations about Kathy to Vic No. 1 staff.
    So many allegations about Kathy and just as many denials.

  26. minor blog reviewer…… Your contribution to this debate is about as useful as a lawn mower in the desert. You obviously are a Jackson/Bolano sycophant. Unfortunately, due to, at times, one sided media coverage on the HSU in particular the current happenings in the East branch, this website is the only true way of reading about the disgraceful conduct over years of the Jacksons (both Jeff and Kathy) and how these two have systematically bled this union and its members hard earned membership fees for their own personal gratification for years and years. Hopefully now Thompson and Williamson have been covered to death in the media and both will soon be proven as both rorting this union over years, now it will be Kathy Jackson and her body guard and sidekick Marco Bolano to be publicly shown to be as bad as their Northern partners in crime.

  28. That’s a ‘me too’ re WTF comments. Typical interview is to briefly put an allegation to her, wait for her to deny the allegation as a ‘fabrication by my enemies’ then interviewer moves on to next unrelated question. Amazing. Note how this morning she’s replying on behalf of her ex. Like Bolano he mustn’t be allowed to say anything on his own behalf.

Williamson will also after a valiant defense will also get a custodial jail sentence of 4 years with a minimum of 23 months for interfering with police investigation and gross financial misconduct. Kathy Jackson will receive a non custodial sentence of 18 months commuted to good behavior of the same period, will have have a conviction recorded against her for guilt findings for financial misdealings with HSU credit union. Jeff will plea bargain and assist police with inquiries resulting on one year good behavior bond and with no conviction recorded against his name.

    There is a a history of entrenched discord and mismanagement in the Victorian branch under the Jackson’s watch that has so far evaded proper scrutiny.Kathy is working hard to keep that scrutiny at bay by diverting to blame Thompson in what appears to have been an elaborate set up and payback for him not endorsing her for his position.

    I hope for the members sakes that due scrutiny and proper & thorough forensic investigation is conducted into the Jacksons in order to unravel the mutinous rape and systemic discord of a once strong union.

  50. One does not have to look very far to see how easily Thomson could have been set up. HSU would have had his drivers licence on record, just in case they needed to hire a vehicle, they would also have access to his mobile, switch the sim cards, and all calls made by someone else recorded by being made with Thomsons mobile, just switch sim cards when ready to. They would also have full details of Thomsons credit card as well, you do not even have to sign a credit card purchase, just quote your credit card number and expiry date over the phone. Easy peasy. He is protecting someone at the very top of the HSU.

    And the winner is ……. Craaiig Thomson

    Posted by Toad of Toad Hall | May 14, 2012, 15:28
  52. If you believe Thomson, it goes like this:-
    • Another Union official threatened him in 2004 that he would set Thomson up with hookers;
    • This official then gets physical control of Thomson’s credit card (remember the credit card transactions in FWA evidence were ink imprints, not electronic or phone transactions), driver’s licence (again copied, not simply quoted number/details over phone) and his mobile phone (Thomson made other calls before and after the incriminating ones), and returns all of the above to Thomson undetected ……. several times …… in many different locations ;
    • Despite the set-up threat Thomson doesn’t think to secure his cards/licence/phone, and somehow his nemesis also gets access to Thomson’s hotel rooms late at night to use his landline to order hookers
    • Thomson doesn’t question dodgy transactions on his credit card
    • Then, finally, this mystery person, in an attempt to nobble Craig’s political career, throws buckets of union money at Craig’s election campaign?
    • Having hatched this cunning plot to “destroy Craig’s career” they feed it into the top end of the FWA glacier and wait three years for it to come out. Patient plotters indeed.

    My prime suspect is the guy who was driving the Chinese submarine on the Harold Holt abduction mission.
    And, if this all happened as advertised by Craig, well he is the fucking Forrest Gump of Australian politics

  57. A married man with a business or union credit card might be tempted to use it rather than his personal credit card for whore mongering to avoid the wife seeing the personal cards bank statement.

    A more intelligent action would be to pay the prostitute in cash (your cash not the unions). Legal prostitution is not illegal in NSW I think.

    well…. er i think wongi you can drop the “almost” because what you are saying is that this fantasy setup union official has access to the us armys latest body cloaking device …he got a key to ct’s room at the burswood hid behind the curtain, grabbed the mobile ,within the second ,ct put it down, phoned the brothel within the room, he must have some voice cancellation device as well,…..

    set the meeting, of course he must have some kind of mission impossible face mask…. because i think the girls might have something different to say,…
    got back to the room and carried on other nefarious tasks, all without ct noticing so much as a footprint….
    also when this person had entered or left the room cctv would have recorded a door opening and closing by itself…..

    this my dear penny is an explanation reserved for the “league of extraordinary gentleman ”
    toad sums it up better than me

    wongi my 8cents a day is best served on the abc,s” parliament question time” i would like to see albanese hand thomson the Damascus knife and say “spill your guts on the house of reps floor ”
    in the 24 hr newscycle we are hounding for the sniff of a kill…….is that right penny? no taht is wrong

    You and labor party would have us down the road of southern euro states and now france in a backward culture of expecting handouts. the result of which is now seen on our tv,s every night. is this what you want us to become wongi
    the backwoods fool of asia.
    sorry wongi is that to vitriolic for you,well then how about this one i will adapt from my fantasy character in that famous novel “the pig is the alp………kill the pig…. run him thru”

  63. I genuinely feel sorry for Craig Thomson. The Labor Party and unions are full to the brim with nasty and coniving evil types. It is not too much of a stretch that he was spoofed.

    It is no secret that rival unions play tricks on each other.

    I was told of this:
    A TWU execs laptop was “borrowed” while he was in a meeting and the contents transferred to an external drive. It was a couple of years ago and eventually the heroes who did it boasted about it. The exec got into hot water as they leaked information to media and rivals and he and was left wondering who and how?

    Give poor C. T. a break !
    Union leaders, organisers and the other overpaid spoilt princesses should listen to the public: GROW UP OR GET OUT!!! GET OVER YOURSELVES. None of your little egos will prosper.

    ALL union employees are under scrutiny, so while they continue to claim, that “I am not like the bad guys at the HSU.” They had better be spending every cent and working moment representing their members.

    What a shameful state of affairs

  64. Remember back to the day of that famous raid of the HSUeast offices.

    We had a senior police officer, proudly claiming that they were coming to the end of the investigation.

    He went onto say that someone was caught removing documents in a suit case.

    He said that documents were important to the investigation.

    He said that the person was attempting to disrupt the investigations.

    He also said more than ones, that he believed a arrest was imminent, in a matter of hours.

    What has happened. No one named. No arrest.

    The suit case still not opened, and before the courts.

    We have the FWA report released, weeks ago now.

    There were also promises of charges being laid. This has not occurred.

    Why?

  65. Is there a journalist putting together a list of the remuneration packages for the top executives in the main unions?? If clean, would be a good start in rebuilding broader union credibility. If not, god what a story. Listed companies on the ASX have to make this information publicly available.

    I note Paul Howes, with considerably more responsibility than the HSU mob, earns a more modest sum of $140k. A long way from Jackson, Thomson, Williamson et al earning circa $300k +.

  66. Thomson’s salary was about the same as Paul Howes – $154,000 per annum as legal advisor.

    Howes is not a legal advisor, he has no qualifications at all.

    Jackson doubled it for herself in 2010.

    Poor Kathy, doesn’t get the Board money anymore, she decided that she didn’t want to be on a Board after HSU National Council passed a resolution last year saying that any person representing their Union on any Board had to pass that money back to their Branch.
