REVEALED: What Peter Slipper's sexist text messages actually said
By Malcolm Farr, National Political Editor

"LUCY is very available and keen! Could turn you from your wayward ways," Peter Slipper texted to adviser James Ashby on September 3.
It was just one of hundreds of text messages the Speaker sent about sexual matters.
In a document before the Federal Court, Mr Ashby says that, with hindsight, "he understood the reference to 'wayward ways' to be reference to his homosexuality but at the time was unsure as to what it meant."
It wasn't just sex between men that occupied Mr Slipper's many texting moments.
Their chief political interest was former Liberal minister Mal Brough, who wanted to take the seat of Fisher from Mr Slipper.
"Brough is a c..t,'' Mr Slipper said in a text on October 10 last year. Soon after, he said: ''Funny how we say that a person is a c..t when many guys like c..ts.''
About five minutes later Mr Slipper began what the Opposition has called "'vile anatomical references''. Referring to women's private parts, he said: ''They look like mussell (sic) removed from its shell. Look at a bottle of mussel meat. Salty C..ts in brine.''
That day Mr Ashby attempted to get the SMS conversation back to politics, but Mr Slipper persisted.
"Been to thw (sic) fish shop yet to buy the bottle of shell less Mussells (sic)?''
On October 12 Mr Slipper referred to Liberal front bencher Sophie Mirabella, who had criticised him.
"Yes i agree she did push it too far. But did she do it because you're mates or she's just an ignorant botch (sic)?'' he said in a text.
By early October last year, Mr Slipper was aware of Mr Ashby's interest in an insurance agent the Speaker called "Bill" because he reminded him of former US President Bill Clinton.
On October 14, Mr Slipper questioned the relationship between Mr Ashby and "Bill". "Is he a special friend or just business?" he asked Mr Ashby about the man.
Then, on October 16, Mr Slipper enquired whether Mr Ashby, after a night out, was not just tired but "shagged". Mr Ashby took that as a reference to sexual relations.
There was another Bill reference on October 16 when Mr Slipper said: "Sounds to me that you may have broken the drought." And on October 28, "Did you lose your maidenhood", followed by a reference to Mr Ashby's "virtual hymen".
Attention went back to Mr Brough, whom on December 3 Mr Slipper called "that little f..ker on the Bolt Report."
Late in December, Mr Slipper playfully reprimanded Mr Ashby by saying: "I'm going to smack u. Arhhhhhhhh."
Mr Ashby replied, "Ah I might like it. Tho I'm not into pain."
On January 18, after Mr Slipper had not heard from his adviser for a while, Mr Ashby joked he had quit.
"Y r a cccc....tttttt :)," Mr Slipper replied. "Cccccccc.....t."
Mr Ashby's response was: "You love it but."
These Female members of the Australian Labor Party voted to support Peter Slipper today following a motion by the Liberal Party Opposition that he resign following evidence tendered in Court this past week.Relevant doc above.
