Maria Bailey, the Fine Gael TD involved in the so-called ‘swing-gate’ scandal, confirms that she will not run as a candidate for the party in the upcoming election




Maria Bailey, the protagonist of the infamous ‘swing-gate’ scandal, will not stand as a candidate in the upcoming election.

Ms. Bailey became the target of much popular scorn and derision after she took legal action against a hotel following a fall from a swing chair while at the premises. She later dropped the case, but the reputational damage had already been done.

It is understood that party authorities had already banned her from presenting herself as an election candidate anyway.
