I've had trouble posting this thread, so it comes in pieces.
I took a look at the members of the IAAF ethics commission, and shown what I found below.
Kevin Gosper (AUS)
In response to claims and an admission by John Cpoates that he gave $35,000 to Kenya and Uganda for their Sydney Olympic bids:
"There is nothing written down that says you can't provide an inducement with the bids and nothing that says you cannot do it right up until the vote is taken," Gosper said. "People were slightly concerned about the timing, but it did not break the rules. End of story."
He was the subject of his own investigation into corruption for Salt LAke City Games:
The International Olympic Committee's Ethics Commission has declined to declare Australian IOC vice president, Kevan Gosper, innocent on charges of corruption. Instead it's appointed an independent expert to look into allegations made about a trip to Salt Lake City by Gosper's wife and two of his children in 1990.[
Just an hour before the Ethics Commission began its meeting in Lausanne, the man who was the driving force behind its establishment resigned. Kevan Gosper now finds himself tarnished by the seemingly never-ending web of allegations of misconduct and corruption that spread from Salt Lake City.
More evidence of favoritism:
Kevan Gosper, the vice-president of the International Olympic Committee, has finally bowed to public outrage and made an emotional apology for what he called his error of judgement in letting his daughter carry the Olympic torch. Sophie Gosper displaced another Australian girl, Yianna Souleles, after the Hellenic Olympic Committee invited Ms Gosper to be the first Australian torch bearer for this year's Games.
Just the headline for brevity:
