It has been discovered that some Australian Members of Parliament are maintaining 'dirt files' on their constituents.


 


The discovery was made after a constituent of a Federal Liberal Party MP made allegations upon which an independent investigation found that the claims could be substantiated.


 


The independent counter-intelligence investigation obtained copies of the alleged 'dirt files'.


 


The files contain information that was both legally as well as illegally obtained by the MP or a person or persons unidentified acting on his behalf, the information obtained breaching various state and federal laws in terms of content as well the method through which the information was obtained, collected and maintained.


 


The contents of these files are currently being analysed prior to being handed over to the relevant Australian federal investigative authorities. The Australian community will be made aware of the fact that members of Parliament are keeping 'dirt files'.


 


The discovery of 'dirt files' being kept on constituents by Liberal Party MPs highlights increasing levels of paranoia of these individuals in relation to the general dissatisfaction within the Australian community with the Howard Government when it comes to issues such as David Hicks, Iraq as well as the overall Government dishonesty in relation to a host of other issues.


 


The discovery also highlights the desperate measures that MPs are willing to employ in order to get re-elected during the next Australian elections.
