    0

    SYDNEY, New South Wales: An Australian politician was forced to quit a parliamentary ethics committee on Tuesday after his former-mistress revealed lewd texts he sent her, including one reportedly of his penis in a glass of red wine. Queensland state government MP Peter Dowling, who has been married for more than 25 years, apologized to his family for the pain and embarrassment of the scandal, which was sensationally published in the Courier-Mail newspaper. “I am not proud of the events plastered all over the paper,” Dowling, a Liberal National Party politician, told parliament in reference to reports he had sent the woman several explicit text messages, including one which involved full-frontal nudity. The MP, who was also accused of taking advantage of parliamentary trips to rendezvous with his mistress, said he would stand aside as chair of the ethics committee to allow an investigation into his travel to take place.
