Haughey: Degenerate sleazeball

Just came across an article in which television presenter Anne Robinson recalls how the criminal politician Haughey once groped her.

The claim was made by Robinson in a joint interview with her daughter in light of the recent Jimmy Savile abuse revelations.

I think my best experience was with Charlie Haughey, who was then Ireland’s minister of justice.

I like to imagine he went to his grave with my bruises on his hands after he tried to grope me during the 1969 Irish elections.

The incident reminds us that Haughey was not just a criminal and traitor but also a degenerate sleazeball in is treatment of others particularly women.
