Former Liberal staffer claims desk-masturbating video was revenge porn

Former desk masturbator, Nathan Winn, has filed a police report stating he was the victim of revenge porn.

Parliament House’s sex scandals never seem to end. According to ACT police, Winn filed the report on March 30 on the grounds of “unauthorised sharing of intimate images at Parliament House,” ACT police said while explaining the revenge porn case to the media.

“At this time, officers are engaging with a complainant and completing an assessment of the report,” the police said.

After footage of Winn engaging in explicit sex acts made its way to the media, the former Morrison government staffer found himself at the centre of a major national scandal – and was subsequently sacked.

The videos depicted Winn masturbating on the desk of a female MP, while the other video showed Winn engaging in oral sex with a Grindr hook up. The compromising videos made their way to the media via Winn’s ex-partner, Gavin Cuddy.

According to sources within the government, Winn remains “very loyal to the Coalition and does not want the issue in the media or [any] further controversy”.

At the same time, the sources claim that Winn is in a “very dark place” as the events have severely impacted his mental health.

Liberal backbencher and former employer, MP Warren Entsch, has publicly defended his former co-worker.

“I’m so proud of him for having the courage to do this, to even speak to police,” Entsch has said.

“I hope this one day might mean he can get a job in politics back.”

While Entsch has gone on record to explicitly state that he finds Winn’s actions “very inappropriate”, he has also condemned the actions of Cuddy and the media’s response, labelling the whole situation as an act of “revenge porn”.

“I reached out to Nathan because I was worried about him, he’s done something fr*ggin stupid … and he did it in private … So I’m absolutely thrilled that he is actually taking this on.”

At the time of writing this, Cuddy and the Coalition at large have not issued a statement.
