Tim Paine ***ting scandal, will resign


Global Moderator

It's paywalled but here are the key bits

Former Cricket Tasmania staffer Renee Ferguson has alleged she was “deeply offended” after ex-Test captain Tim Paine sent her a “***ually explicit, unwelcome and unsolicited photograph of his genitals” and bombarded her with ***ual messages.

She also said three other men employed by Cricket Tasmania – whom she had also never had a ***ual or romantic relationship with – bombarded her with unsolicited ***ual messages and comments.


Ferguson says the harassment was “relentless and systemic” and felt she was compelled to “put up with” the ***ually explicit messages and graphic remarks she received over the course of two years. She also states “no one was doing anything about it”.
This comes from a submission to the Federal Court seeking damages.


Whatever it takes!!!
Given what we already saw about the exchange, I find a lot of this hard to believe. But I suppose that is how you have to write to kickstart the lawsuit? My cynical guess is that she is intending to seek some damages/out of court settlement here.
