    Default FF Cllr abuses Oireachtas envelopes for personal gain

    http://www.unison.ie/irish_independe...issue_id=12904
    Clondalkin councillor Trevor Gilligan used the envelopes to write to TDs from all parties promising "an unbeatable way of reaching out to voters" through his web company Infinite Bandwidth.

    Yesterday Mr Gilligan claimed "about 100" free Oireachtas envelopes had been used.

    "At the end of the day, it is only a few envelopes. What is the price of a postage stamp? We were just out to make ourselves a bit of money on the website business."
    Here's one for TKWhiskers- our resident crusader against uunregulated Oireachtas freebies.

    Gilligan's comments at the end are telling - typical FF: they just can't see that they've done anything wrong.
    Add this to the time Dempsey used taxpayers money to fund FF leaflets; Fahy used departmental notepaper to send out invites to an FF fundraiser; and (my own particular favourite) the Lorcan Allen fiasco.

    What a pack of dopes

    Amazingly, TKWhiskers seems to be lying low today. Maybe he's in FG HQ looking for those "unregulated printing presses"
    "So how are things at the Campaign for the Freedom of Information, by the way?" "Sorry, I can't talk about that"

    Infinite Bandwidth's website is here.

    "We were just out to make ourselves a bit of money on the website business" would make a great company slogan.
    I hate my username!

    Yeah he's gone very quiet, maybe he's gone to the SDCC offices to destroy the evidence of FF impropriety

    Nah - I'd say he's in the basement of Leinster House, furiously printing leaflets for the election before O' Hanlon throws the switch on the whole operation

    Not at all, he's one of ours. And glad we are to have him too.

    Must have mixed him up with the general.
