In a now deleted Facebook comment, Melbourne’s Vice Mayor Paul Alfrey posted a screenshot of an email from 2011 that appeared to be to him from then Melbourne Chief of Police, Steve Mimbs.
Alfrey resigned from the police department apparently in order to avoid further disciplinary actions after numerous founded investigations into his behavior, although he still claims to be officially retired.
Alfrey posted the Facebook comment containing the email on his campaign Facebook page in what appears to be an attempt to show that despite reports, the Chief saw him favorably.
However, the email titled “Fwd: Evaluation” is from email@example.com and to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Chief’s email address is nowhere within the email or the headers.
