Mr Flannery’s future as director of elections for Fine Gael is also uncertain after it emerged he was paid to lobby the Government on behalf of Rehab.
Last night, Mr Flannery said he and Mr Kenny had already “had a chat” about all these matters – but he added that their discussions were private.
The former Rehab chief executive said all his work for Fine Gael was voluntary and he did not take a penny in expenses. He also insisted he has not received any direct communication from PAC requesting his attendance at its hearings.
“I have total outrage fatigue at this stage but this is completely ridiculous. How do these fuppers sleep?.”
