Oz politicians' winner bet had prize of trip to Bali with two virgins

   Nov 7, 1:22 pm

Melbourne, Nov 7(ANI): Australia's Liberal National Party (LNP) treasurer Barry O'Sullivan and Sunshine Coast official Greg Newton have been accused of betting on last federal election in which the winner was promised a trip to Bali with two virgins.

According to the Courier-Mail, the alleged wager centred on the outcome of the Labor-held federal seat of Longman in which the LNP had pre-selected Wyatt Roy.

It was unclear whether it was O'Sullivan or Newton who had backed Roy or if the loser made good on the wager.

An LNP MP was allegedly present when the pair negotiated the trip to the popular holiday destination as part of their bet.

O'Sullivan and Newton have denied the claims. (ANI)
