Ahead of the publication of more tales of Grogden’s bad behaviour around women, the disgraced former NSW Lieberal Party Leader apparently sucked up a bottle of gin and tried to slash his wrists. Groggo was rushed to hospital after police found him unconscious in a back room of his Mona Vale offices late last evening.
Groggo’s father-in-law and former Lieberal Party State Treasurer, Frank Hooke, is reported by News.com.au as having been so concerned in 1999 about Groggo’s behaviour around female staffers that he had recommended that 25-year-old Suzanne Tulloch be moved out of his office because rumours had run rampant about her relationship with the former Lieberal leader. Tulloch denied that her relationship with Groggo was more than a friendship.
The Daily Telegraph reports today that Grogden quit the NSW Lieberal Party leadership in part because the sexual harassment of female journalists and his racist jab at Helena Carr reported on 29 August were apparently only a small sample of his poor behaviour towards women. More information has come to light about Groggo’s behaviour at a 2003 Christmas party, where Groggo was reported to have asked two women to have sex with him.
What I find stunning is that so many women have kept Groggo’s sexually aggressive behaviours and alcohol abuse quiet for so long. Grrrls, if men behave in abusive fashion with you, they’ll treat other women like that as well. Reporting behaviours like Groggo’s is paramount to stop the abuse of other women.
