How does the Prime Minister's handbag do the same thing yet no charges were even considered, much less brought?
Oh yes, the Prime Minister bought her way out of it, now I remember.....
did guillard to the same thing?
How does the Prime Minister's handbag do the same thing yet no charges were even considered, much less brought?When it was discovered she was allowed to pay back the calculated cost in exactly the same manner that all the MP's recently discovered with private travel at taxpayer expense were allowed to (for example, WA Liberal MP Don Randall inspecting his investment property in Cairns at taxpayer expense).
I reckon Craig Thomson is about to find out....Correct! What he actually did differently was instead of submitting receipts for 'non work related wedding travel' Thomson submitted receipts for 'prostitutional services rendered over four hours' crossed out with 'entertainment' scrawled over the top. His fraud was in the deliberate act of ammending and/or concealing of expenses, instead claiming for something less 'nefarious'. That is to say that his fraud relates not to the 'claiming' as such, but the altering and concealment of the real expense behind the claim.
