Startling allegations made by a former Liberal Party staffer, Brittany Higgins, were for the first time published yesterday by News.com.au.

Miss Higgins alleged that she was raped at Parliament House in Defense Minister Linda Reynolds ministerial office by another staffer and felt forced to choose between reporting it to the police and keeping her job.

ABC’s Political Editor, Andrew Probyn,  has been covering the explosive allegations and the ensuing fallout within the Nation’s Capital.
