It’s tempting to cheer on your own team.
We get it.
But for Western Australia’s and Victoria’s Labor governments, that temptation looks to have crossed a legal line.
In the latest stoush, a $245,000 Western Australian government advertising campaign had the state Nationals referring it to the Public Sector Commission, the Australian Associated Press reports.
Labor inadequately use taxpayer funds
They accuse the Labor government of wrongly using taxpayer money and senior officials to slander the LNP federal government in the Don’t Walk Away newspaper and digital advertising.
This comes after a parallel referral by the Victorian state opposition regarding the state’s anti-corruption body, which saw the Victorian state government run a similar advertising campaign.
