Child crusader's dirty little secret

The Daily Telegraph


April 1, 2005

A SEX company which sells pornographic films with titles such as Fresh Meat has emerged as a key financial backer of children's rights crusader Hetty Johnston. was one of three porn companies which contributed a total of $4322 to Ms Johnston's failed bid for the Senate.

The internet porn shop -- which sells DVDs with titles such as Fresh Meat, 18 and Nasty and 18 and Easy -- gave Ms Johnston more than $1500 to run for the Senate.

Ms Johnston -- who led the campaign against former governor-general Peter Hollingworth over his handling of child sex abuse by other clergy -- has gone to ground and is refusing to comment on the scandal.

She this week denied being a hypocrite for accepting money from hard-core pornographers to further her political career.
