'Sexting' MP wont face ethics committee over upgrades

SEXTING Queensland MP Peter Dowling won't be referred to state parliament's ethics committee over failing to declare travel upgrades.

The Redlands MP gained worldwide notoriety after his mistress wrote to parliament last month to reveal their affair.

She confessed the pair had sex in his parliamentary office and he texted her a photo of his penis in a glass of red wine.

The mistress also alleged Mr Dowling took advantage of parliamentary travel trips to meet her in locations including Perth and New Zealand.

During these trips he accepted more than $20,000 in free upgraded flights, which he didn't declare on his members register of interest.
