Johnsen’s espoused strong government links – disassociate

MICHAEL Johnsen, disgraced former Upper Hunter state member, is attempting to reinvent himself as a government strategist and reputation manager, all with a “media outcome focus”, however photos on his website of Mr Johnsen cosied up with former government colleagues, including the Premier, have been removed overnight.

Mr Johnsen left Parliament amid accusations of rape and images of him masturbating and photographing himself in a Parliament public bathroom, which plunged the seat into a by-election and leaves the Coalition facing the prospect of a minority government.

His new website and spruiked up LinkedIn profile espouses expertise in areas, where he clearly failed the current government, and featured images of Mr Johnsen cosied up to Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Deputy Premier John Barilaro and even the Minister for Police David Elliot.

All images of Mr Johnsen with members of the Government and strong statements about his close government networks were removed overnight.
