Tony Abbott has been accused of double standards for not sacking a senator that shoved another lib and called him a poofter.
Somehow the ALP have lost their moral compass and this is just another example.
“Under the principles the Labor government has supported and continues to support Senator Heffernan is entitled to due process and the presumption of innocence,” senior minister Craig Emerson said.
But Dr Emerson said if Mr Abbott applied his own principles he’d “refuse to accept Senator Heffernan’s tainted vote, he will stand him down from chairing the relevant Senate committee and he will move to dismiss Senator Heffernan from the Liberal Party”.
Only in the warped parallel universe of Labor would a scumbag unionist who ripped off his union for $500,000 including putting hookers on the union credit card would be the moral equivalent of a bit of jostling and calling someone a poofter.
