Malcolm Turnbull adviser Caitlin Keage loses job over Matt Keane ‘sexts’
A SENIOR staffer for the PM — who posted pictures of her ex-boyfriend’s explicit texts to another MP online — has lost her job.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister told news.com.au this morning that Ms Keage is no longer working as part of Mr Turnbull’s office.
However, the spokesman would not say when she left the position or whether she was pushed to leave, fired or left of her own volition.
In the texts, which took place shortly after Christmas, Mr Kean messages Ms Petinos while she’s “playing a board game with my family”, saying he’s “tempted to drive down to see you”.
“Miss me huh?” she asks.
“Yup, really need to f**k you,” he responds.
Ms Petinos says he has “CK” for that and tells him it’s “that time of the month”.
He responds: “OK come up later x.”
The next day, Ms Petinos texted Mr Kean and said: “Just got your Christmas card — you’re absolutely gorgeous — love you xx.”
