Lieutenant Colonel Cate McGregor was found to have breached Defence policy over the "inappropriate” attacks during the online stoush with a reserve member and a member of the public who had singled her out in a prolonged criticism of gay people in the military.
Amid a series of emails and tweets around the time of Lt Gen Morrison’s speech, Defence has confirmed Lt Col McGregor asked a private blogger in an email if "cattleman was your occupation or your sexual preference?”.
In an email after the speech, Lt Col McGregor criticised the reserve member’s father as a failure in the army and later signed off an email "Catherine McGregor AM – suck on that f#$%wit!".
She had been described as a "walking talking parody of Australian womanhood".
