From the Blurb:

Politicians are said to be bent for lots of reasons.

The crimes of Milton Orkopoulos are barely remembered outside NSW.  It is hard enough to stay awake when following the politicians in one's own state perhaps.  If he had restricted his criminal activity to personal possession of marijuana the chances are he would never have been charged, but he used it as a lure to insinuate his way into the lives of minors, who he used for his personal sexual gratification. He became a sexual predator.

Power enables people. The powerful can do things, but sometimes what they do breaks the law. Milton Orkopoulos had sex with teenage boys, Rex Jackson sold Get-Out-of- Jail-Free cards, and Joh Bjelke-Petersen told a whopper on oath. These men were all lawmakers, parliamentarians, and law breakers. One became The Hillbilly Dictator, as close as Australia has come to a one-party police state.
