Prostitute changes Thomson story

MANY reputations have been tarnished in the Craig Thomson affair, and now a major commercial television network has joined the list of the accused.

A former prostitute claims Channel Nine aired allegations she made against the MP after she had told the network she was an unreliable witness and wanted to retract her story.

The woman last night apologised to Mr Thomson and his family, and argued it had been a case of mistaken identity. ''I feel absolutely terrible for Craig Thomson and his family.''

Nine's A Current Affair offered her $60,000 for an on-camera interview after she signed a sworn statement saying she had sex with Mr Thomson.

Last night she fronted Seven's Today Tonight program to say she believed she did not have sex with Mr Thomson, and would retract her sworn statement.
