When I took him at his word that this was an isolated incident in the hours that followed by there were numerous reports of activity that that nature and so Tony, I spoke and agree that it would be best for him to respond to these allegations from outside Caucus configure that you’ve been advised, so I have heard from Tony that that he was the victim of extortion.
