Woman charged with blackmailing Qld MP Billy Gordon

A woman has been charged with blackmailing Queensland MP Billy Gordon.

The 50-year-old woman from Cairns is due to face court on October 9, after police launched an investigation into the incident and charged the woman on Thursday.

It is alleged Mr Gordon sent the woman a picture of his genitalia after the pair exchanged various messages.


The woman is then alleged to have used the image to her benefit, trying to extort an unknown amount of money from the Queensland MP.

The extortion charge comes after Queensland Police confirmed on Thursday that they would not be proceeding with domestic violence allegations against Mr Gordon.
