“ Mr Bandt justified the trip by claiming his attendance was as genuine a use of taxpayer money as the Prime Minister attending an Anzac Day service and billing it to taxpayers.”

 

Sunday Telegraph's story 

 

Aussie taxpayers forked out thousands of dollars to fly politicians and their partners to Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade.

An analysis of the latest expenses data by the Sunday Herald Sun revealed Labor and Greens MPs billed taxpayers for flights, accommodation and chauffeur-driven cars.

Weeks after he was elected to replaced Richard Di Natale as the new leader of the federal Greens, Victorian MP Adam Bandt charged taxpayers almost $3000 in flights for him and his wife to travel from Melbourne to Sydney for the parade.

Mr Bandt and wife Claudia Perkins did not claim accommodation costs but billed taxpayers for an $80 chauffer-driven trip in Sydney.

Mr Bandt justified the trip by claiming his attendance was as genuine a use of taxpayer money as the Prime Minister attending an Anzac Day service and billing it to taxpayers.

Mr Bandt’s colleague, Adelaide-based senator Sarah Hanson-Young, billed the public more than $1300 for her two-night stay in Sydney, which included an $830 hotel bill.

Taxpayers also picked up the $290 airfares from Canberra, and a $126 bill for a chauffeur-driven car in Sydney.
