Lib staffer resigns over alleged sex harassment

June 18, 2009

A Liberal opposition staffer has resigned over the alleged sexual harassment of several women at a social function in Canberra on Wednesday night.

Anthony Scrinis, an electorate officer working for Liberal Sophie Mirabella who is opposition spokeswoman for women (emphasis mine. -weez), handed in his resignation late on Thursday, according to Ms Mirabella.

Mr Scrinis allegedly grabbed the breasts of two women on the dance floor while at the Midwinter Ball at Parliament House on Wednesday night, media reported.

It is alleged he also approached four other women during the evening asking to fondle their breasts.

It’s understood one of the women whose breasts were grabbed is a senior adviser to a cabinet minister who left the dance floor in tears.

One of the women had lodged an official complaint about Mr Scrinis’ behaviour, it was reported.

One woman who observed Mr Scrinis’ behaviour at the ball said he appeared to be under the weather.

“He appeared to be drunk and was approaching various women on the dance floor,” the woman, who did not want to be named, told AAP.

“He was pretty sleazy and kept trying it on, he wouldn’t go away.”

Mr Scrinis seems to be an arsehole even when he’s sober. Scrinis was a candidate for Port Phillip council who believes there’s more harm to be done by enacting carbon-neutral council policies than by doing nothing; apparently his property value trumps global warming, which Scrinis believes is a furphy:

Doomsday is not coming from man-made climate change. Climate Change is a beautiful natural process, which has always occured [sic] on Earth.

Does this guy hang out with Fielding?

Scrinis is also a sore loser who failed to enroll to vote for his entire adult life- until he wanted to be a candidate.

I have enrolled to vote for the first time in my life, because this is the most critical policy judgement for us and our children.

Scrinis also volunteers:

I am truly independent and not a member of any political party.

…except when he’s working as a staffer for Liberal politicians.

By-election or not, I don’t think Scrinis could be elected dogcatcher after his boob job at the knees-up.

Go the Liberals. Cement that irrelevance, baby.
