Craig Thomson is a dodgy union and now an MP who is propping up the Gillard Government.
Mr Thomson has been under investigation by Fair Work Australia for over three years for alleged misuse of union members’ funds.
He has been accused of using a union credit card to hire prostitutes and make cash withdrawals. He has denied the claims, and this afternoon released a statement reaffirming his innocence.
Fair Work’s general manager Bernadette O’Neill announced the referral to the Commonwealth DPP in a press statement today, saying she had received the 1100 page report last Wednesday and had been examining it since.
I am sure as we pick apart union finances here in New Zealand we are going to find similar dodgy financial practices by union bosses.
