A PROSTITUTE who claimed she had slept with MP Craig Thomson has changed her story.
The woman has told Today Tonight that she now believes she never slept with the embattled MP.
“I believed I had at the time,” she said.
She was asked why she now believed she had not had sex with him.
“Because there is evidence to prove it was not me,” she said.
A Current Affair offered her $50,000 and then $60,000 to tell her story of sleeping with Mr Thomson, she said.
She said she later called ACA and told them she was no longer “one hundred per cent sure” it was him.
She declined to accept the money, claiming she was in New Zealand in May 2005, when she supposedly had Mr Thomson as a client.
Appearing on Today Tonight in an unpaid interview, the woman apologised to Mr Thomson, saying it was just a terrible case of mistaken identity.
She accused ACA of going to air with the allegation even after she told them she wasn’t convinced it was her.
“I’m furious,” she said.
