Arabella Del Busso makes saucy video pleading with ex-MP Scott Driscoll to reopen Queensland borders

Controversial WAG and model Arabella Del Busso has made a sultry plea to a disgraced former MP to open up Queensland’s borders so she can leave Melbourne and party with him.

The 30-year-old former girlfriend of rugby league star Josh Reynolds has been messaging disgraced businessman Scott Driscoll on Facebook with a series of steamy video pleas.

In one of them Del Busso, a lingerie model and Instagram influencer, bizarrely urges him to make a political comeback so she can leave COVID-infected Melbourne and have some fun with him.

‘So Scotty, I have one question: when are the Queensland borders going to be open?,’ she said. 

‘Because this basic Melbourne babe wants to come up and party.

‘So if you can kindly get your a*** into Parliament and open up those borders, that would be much appreciated.’

On June 18, despite an outbreak of COVID-19 in Melbourne, Driscoll posted a Del Busso video message to him with the caption: ‘Time to allow “southern imports” to come back into Queensland again. Don’t you agree?’

Under that message was an image of Del Busso – original name Donna Pruesker – with a tag line: ‘Went to bed cute, woke up cute.’

The next morning Driscoll, 45, posted another Facebook video of Del Busso wearing skimpy white shorts and a bikini top to highlight her ‘early morning boxing session’. 

He told his social media followers he was ‘feeling chill at Fortitude Valley’.

Property records show he lives in a studio apartment in Brisbane’s inner-north paying $280 a week in rent.

Driscoll was suspended from the Liberal National Party in April 2013, only a year after being elected as an MP, and he resigned from the Queensland Parliament in November 2013 to avoid being expelled as the member for Redcliffe in 2014.

The Crime and Corruption Commission later charged him with 16 counts of fraud, adding up to $725,000.

He was sentenced in March 2017 to six years in jail but was released in January 2019 after serving at least 18 months of his parole, for 15 counts of fraud.

The Brisbane District Court found he had defrauded the Queensland Retail Traders and Shopkeepers Association of almost $180,000, by falsifying meeting minutes and seeking secret commissions from two major supermarkets.

The court heard the group was paid $110,000 to fight a change to extended trading hours, only for Driscoll to put the proceeds towards a house deposit.

As a member of Parliament, he tried to solicit $200,000 and $300,000 from Coles and Woolworths to change the lobby group’s position on trading hours.

Both supermarket giants declined to make the payment.

Driscoll also appropriated another $60,000 from the sale of a QRTSA property.

Despite his criminal past, Driscoll doesn’t appear to have learnt his lesson, claiming on Linked In that he is still a member of Parliament, even though Labor attorney-general Yvette D’Ath has held his old seat of Redcliffe, north of Brisbane, since February 2014.

‘I am the Member for Redcliffe in the Queensland Parliament and very proud to serve the community I love and the town I was “born and bred”,’ his profile said.

His LinkedIn profile also said he had been the Member for Redcliffe for eight years and four months, even though he hasn’t been an MP for six years after serving less than two years in the Legislative Assembly.

‘I see my role as the Member for Redcliffe to be a strong and fearless advocate for what the majority of the people in my electorate want to see happening in our community,’ it said.

Falsely claiming to be a member of Parliament is illegal, including on social media. 

‘To falsely claim to be a member of Parliament would prima facie be a contempt of the Parliament,’ the Queensland Parliament’s website said.

‘It usually occurs when a member ceases to be a member and continues to have information relating to being a member on social media.’

Neil Laurie, the Clerk of the Queensland Parliament, told Daily Mail Australia: ‘A person should not hold themselves out as a member of the assembly if they are not a member of the assembly and to do so may constitute a contempt.’

Mr Laurie, however, said the Linked In account could be a ‘legacy’ page.

‘It is not uncommon for former members to omit deletion of old Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In pages,’ he said.

‘Our response is generally to contact the former member and ask for removal of the page. Such omissions are not usually intentional.

‘It is dealt with differently to someone who has never been a member and is holding themselves out as a member.’

Driscoll’s Facebook page accurately describes himself as a ‘Former Member for Redcliffe at Queensland Parliament’.

He now runs a corporate communications business that promised to help clients ‘to smash it like an avo’ and Daily Mail Australia has contacted him on this website.
