Minister caught at gay club David Campbell resigns

THE NSW Labor government has been rocked by yet another scandal, with Transport Minister David Campbell quitting last night following revelations he attended a gay sex club.

Mr Campbell, who is married with two adult sons, was caught on camera by the Seven Network on Tuesday evening, leaving Ken’s of Kensington, in eastern Sydney.

He was shown driving away from the bath-house in his official car.

Last night Mr Campbell, whose wife has been battling cancer, said in a statement: “I apologise to my wife, family, colleagues, staff and the community for letting them down.

“This will be a very difficult time for my family and friends and I ask for their privacy to be respected.”

While Mr Campbell, 52, said he would remain in his Wollongong-based seat of Keira, it appears highly unlikely he will contest the seat at the election due next March. Premier Kristina Keneally last night said she had accepted Mr Campbell’s resignation and announced a reshuffle of her ministry. Industrial Relations Minister John Robertson will replace Mr Campbell in transport.
