Was it Kelly's gang?

THE barrister for a man who distributed a bogus pamphlet before last year's federal election has told a court that former member for Lindsay, Jackie Kelly, "appears to be involved".
Alex Howen, who represented Troy Matthew Craig, said: "The federal member (at the time), on the face of it, appears to be involved," and added that the group who distributed the leaflet in Oxley Park and North St Marys met at Ms Kelly's Penrith home.
Ms Kelly has previously denied any knowledge of the printing or distributing of the pamphlet that claimed to be from an Islamic group that supported Labor.
Outside Downing Centre Local Court on Tuesday Mr Howen backed down from his comments.
"I don't know if the sitting member knew or not," he said when asked about Ms Kelly's role in the pamphlet saga.
Nothing about these local issues in the Penrith City Star (online) so far...
