The Upper House of the Victorian Parliament has today voted to refer the behaviour of the three disgraced former Labor ministers to the Ombudsman.
The evidence of branch stacking, misuse of publicly funded staff and other allegedly corrupt behaviour revealed in the 60 Minutes report and by The Age has shocked Victorians.
This referral will ensure the Ombudsman interrogates these allegedly corrupt actions by these three disgraced former Labor ministers and investigates just how much further this scandal goes.
This referral to the Ombudsman comes after Daniel Andrews and his mates in the Lower House refused to support a referral to the Ombudsman yesterday.
Comments attributable to Leader of the Opposition in the Upper House, David Davis:
“It’s important that the Ombudsman investigate these shocking revelations engulfing the Andrews Labor Government.
“Victorians deserve to know just how far the corruption in the Andrews Labor Government goes.
“Despite refusing to allow this referral to the Ombudsman yesterday, Labor has today been shamed into not blocking this important inquiry.”
