Tasmanian Liberals Rake in Donations, Declare Less than a Quarter

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens’ Leader

The latest Australian Electoral Commission disclosure returns reveal the State Liberals pocketed $2.39 million in political donations in 2016-17, but only declared the sources for $498 000.*

Tasmanians have no idea which vested interests the remaining $1.89 million came from, and that is a taint on our democracy.
