Australian connection

In 1999, under parliamentary privilege cite web|url=http://www.aph.gov.au/hansard/senate/commttee/s4838.pdf |title=Transcript, Senate Employment, Workplace Relations, Small Business, and Educational Reference Committee |accessmonthday=September 15 |accessyear=2006 |date=2001-05-15 |format=pdf |publisher=Australian Senate |pages=68] , Senator Kim Carr referred to a number of institutions including St Clements University which, in his opinion, were operating from Australia as "degree mills". He said that when a member of his staff contacted the company identified as administering St Clements it was discovered that it was also a whiskey distributing company and alleged educational services company.cite web|url=http://www.aph.gov.au/hansard/senate/comttee/s2297.pdf |title=Consideration of Official Estimates: Supplemental Hearings |accessmonthday=September 14 |accessyear=2006 |date=1999-05-06 |format=pdf |publisher=Australian Senate |pages=64-66] Senator Carr subsequently referred to St Clements as reminiscent of "the famous pirates of old . . . using legal devices andincompetence by government ministers and making a bridgehead into this country’s educationalinstitutions" and as being operated out of a "grog shop".
