There’s a highly curious story in the Canberra Times about a $20,000 post bill rung up by Senator Zed Seselja that some un-named flunkey has been repeatedly trying to offload without success:
But the bill failed to reach the Canberra Liberals’ ACT division headquarters until last month, despite repeated requests by Australia Post and the Legislative Assembly for the Liberals’ correct account details.
Instead it was charged twice more to taxpayer-funded accounts, including to Mr Humphries, who later lost his seat to Mr Seselja in a bitter preselection battle. It is unclear how the charges came to be lodged with the former senator last October and then, again, with the Legislative Assembly in July this year.
I particularly like Vicki Dunne’s bang up job of finding nothing to be concerned about.
