It now seems that a host of political opponents are lining up to take a penalty kick at him. He is facing a welter of criticism after his disclosure of information about fellow TD Mick Wallace. Minister Shatter claimed Wallace 'had received a garda warning for using his mobile phone while driving'
Minister Shatter alleged that 'Wallace was cautioned for driving while using a mobile phone but did not receive any penalty points at the discretion of the gardaí.'
In addition to the pressure that is mounting in the Dail he is being sniped at from within his own balliwick. The General Secretary of the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors, John Redmond, was critical of Minister Shatter for making privileged information public.
