Daniel Andrews has been reported as twice having been at functions with developer John Woodman who is the centre of attention in the Casey Council bribery scandal.

Last week in the Victorian Parliament, Planning Minister Richard Wynne said no present MP had ever approached him about Woodman's plans and rezoning only to admit the next day that in fact two members of Parliament in the previous Government had indeed sought his "advice" over this planning schemes.
