Tony's Second Wedding Rort
"Tony Abbott was one of several MPs at the Mirabellas' nuptials in 2006. He claimed more than $1000 of public money for travel expenses which, as controversy swirls about Coalition politicians billing the taxpayers for attending weddings, he has just paid back.
There is no reasonable case a politician could make that the Mirabella wedding was some sort of official work. The only guests who had (light) duties were the journalists (and no, I didn’t claim any expenses from my company). The fact that it was simply a social occasion was implicitly recognised by those politicians who didn’t make claims. George Brandis, also on the guestlist, who has been caught up in another wedding controversy, travelled with fellow senator Brett Mason and neither claimed."
When even fellow rorter Brandis knows not to claim, why is our Prime Minister charging us to attend Mirabella's wedding?
