Conroy : Is He a Duck?

The Australian Federal Minister for Communications, Stephen Conroy, may not actually be corrupt; I certainly have no evidence that he is, but a number of recent incidents sure look like corruption to me. For instance:

The real irony is that under Conroy's proposed scheme to filter the internet in Australia comments like this blog entry may end up being censored. The problem with Conroy's filter is not that it filters porn, but rather that the list of what is being filtered is secret and hence could easily include web sites which contain comments which the government or the Minister for Communications want silenced.
