Was Andrew Bolt a lefty?

Andrew Bolt is an opinion columnist for the Herald Sun, well known for his outspoken conservative views. He is no stranger to controversy and is noted for his scepticism of anthropomorphic climate change and the stolen generation of aboriginal children. He appears to write with great conviction as he expresses views held by only a minority of the population that inevitably generate a backlash from many readers.

Andrew Bolt's biography on the website of ICMI, a speakers and entertainers bureau, might surprise a few people. Apparently he was involved in a couple of election campaigns for the Hawke Labor government:

Outside journalism, he has worked for the Hawke Labor Government on two election campaigns, and for the State Opera of South Australia as its publicity director and acting general manager. He is married with three children.
