NSW Minister David Campbell resigns after accusations he used a taxpayer-funded government car to visit a gay sex club.


NSW Minister David Campbell has resigned from his road and transport portfolios this evening, citing personal reasons and apologising to his family and friends.

Mr Campbell's resignation came after accusations he used a taxpayer-funded government car to visit a gay sex club in the state premier’s eastern suburbs electorate.

Tonight Channel Seven aired footage of Mr Campbell allegedly visiting the club in Kensington, Ken’s at Kensington, on Tuesday night for about two hours.
Mr Campbell excused his driver and drove himself to the sex club in his ministerial car.

"I have resigned as Minister for Transport and Roads for personal reasons, not for any reasons relating to my Ministerial duties," he 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."

Mr Campbell has indicated he will remain the Member for Keira. 

Mr Campbell has been a member of the Labor party since 1976.

He served as Lord Mayor of Wollongong from 1991 to 1999. He was elected Member for Keira in March 1999.

He is married and has two adult sons.

Keneally reshuffles

NSW Premier Kristina Keneally says she has accepted Transport Minister David Campbell’s resignation, tendered over claims he used a government car to visit a gay sex club in Sydney.

Ms Keneally accepted Mr Campbell’s resignation, saying he had carried out his ministerial duties with dedication and success.

"I accepted his resignation on compassionate grounds as he clearly wants time to work through this difficult period with his family," Ms Keneally said in a statement late on Thursday night.

"I thank him for his tireless work and for fulfilling his ministerial duties with dedication."I appeal to the community to show understanding towards David and his family at this time."

The premier also announced a major reshuffle in the wake of Mr Campbell’s resignation.

John Robertson takes on the portfolio of Transport while David Borger adds Roads to his portfolio of Minister for Western Sydney, but drops Housing.

Aboriginal Affairs Minister Paul Lynch will take on Mr Robertson’s previous portfolios of Energy, Commerce, Public Sector Reform and Industrial Relations.Peter Primrose loses Small Business but picks up Ageing and Disability Services.

Meanwhile, Maitland MP Frank Terenzini has been elevated to the ministry with the Housing and Small Business portfolios.He was also named Minister Assisting the Premier on Veterans Affairs.

Ms Keneally said the new minister would be sworn in as soon as possible.
