Who is Terry Brooks?

The emergence of a business card for a “Terry Brooks” believed to be linked to disgraced former Mining Minister Adam Brooks has raised questions that only Adam Brooks or the Premier can answer.

Labor campaign spokesperson Sarah Lovell said Labor has obtained the business card, and has confirmed that it has fictitious email and street addresses but the phone number goes to a voicemail that resembles the voice of Adam Brooks.

There are two possible reasons for this – either:

Adam Brooks has had his identity stolen and should report this fraudulent activity to the police OR
Adam Brooks is operating under multiple identities and needs to explain what he is up to.

“Adam Brooks also needs to explain whether online dating profiles under other names using photos which appear to be of him are linked to Adam Brooks or if he is being impersonated – or worse extorted,” Ms Lovell said.

“Adam Brooks has form for lying about his business activities and quit Parliament in disgrace after it was revealed he was continuing to operate his mining business email address during his brief stint as Mining Minister. Adam Brooks lied to a Parliamentary Committee and the then-Premier in an attempt to cover up that lie.*

“The Liberal Party also has form in creating false identities after a senior Liberal staffer was forced to quit during the last election after she was caught out using a fake social media account to troll people.”**
