Federal Labor chief Invoice Shorten says the alleged behaviour of former NSW Labor chief Luke Foley ‘can’t be tolerated’.

The alleged behaviour of former NSW Labor chief Luke Foley “can’t be tolerated”, federal Labor chief Invoice Shorten says.

Mr Foley resigned on Thursday night after ABC journalist Ashleigh Raper revealed particulars of a November 2016 incident wherein the state opposition chief allegedly put his hand down her underpants.

The previous chief denies the allegations and has threatened defamation proceedings in opposition to Ms Raper.

“The behaviour that Ashleigh described is clearly improper, inappropriate, it can’t be tolerated,” Mr Shorten informed ABC radio in Perth on Thursday night.

“Fashionable society has no tolerance for the behaviour which she described.”

Mr Shorten says the journalist deserves respect and the privateness she had requested for in her assertion.

“Regardless of the particulars, Ashleigh I believe wants, deserves, our help and understanding presently,” he mentioned.

“Contemplating the behaviour described, and what has occurred hasn’t revered her needs – I believe one thing the remainder of us can do is deal with her with some respect”.
