Former NSW MLC Eddie Obeid has been found corrupt by the Independent Commission Against Corruption for lobbying in the interests of his secret family businesses and his role in gaining a coal licence over his family farm, which would have led to a $30 million windfall.
In their new book He Who Must Be Obeid, Kate McClymont and Linton Besser document Obeid's web of business interests, political alliances and his unwavering chase for a dollar - no matter who got in the way.
