LETTER: Baker’s fall all his own fault

AS someone who lives in the electorate of Charlton, I strongly disagree with your assertion, Edward Bassingthwaighte, that Kevin Baker deserves our empathy (“Process lacks diligence” Letters 22/8).

I was extremely appalled at his actions. Kevin Baker’s mini-mod website was his own creation, not that of the Liberal Party.

Allowing the sexist and racist comments were his own actions, not the Liberal Party’s.

I believe he does not deserve our empathy, he made the mistake, he made the joke, he paid for it.

If this is what we are getting from our politicians to be or was to be in the case of Kevin Baker, I fear for our next Parliament.
