MICHAELIA CASH MISLEADS… AGAIN

31 Oct 2017


Minister Cash has been caught out once again failing the test of disclosure and transparency in her evidence to Senate Estimates. 

In response to a question from Senator Cameron in Senate Estimates on Thursday as to whether it was true the now resigned media advisor was already planning on leaving his role, Minister Cash unequivocally denied that question. 

DOUG CAMERON: There is some views that your media adviser—I've been advised this—the one who resigned had already made a decision to leave the office prior to resigning. Is it possible he took a bullet for the team and yourself?
MICHAELIA CASH: No.
CAMERON: It's not?
CASH: No.

SENATE ESTIMATES, WEDNESDAY, 25 OCTOBER 2017

Revelations that the person giving media advice to the Registered Organisations Commission (ROC) about the raids was about to take up a job in Cash's office, throws the Minister’s evidence to the Senate into serious doubt.
 
Minister Cash failed to tell the Senate that the person giving media advice to the ROC was about to take up a position in her office. 

Senator Cash's denial to the parliament that her senior media advisor was already planning to leave his role as senior media advisor is not credible. 

If Minister Cash’s senior media advisor was not already leaving his position, what position was the ROC advisor taking up? 

Senator Cash's story is unravelling by the day. It's hard to see how anyone will trust anything she says.

Turnbull must stand the Minister down.
 
The integrity of the Government is shot. How can anyone believe anything this Minister ever says?
