The Greens leader has found himself potentially in serious contempt of the Senate after failing to register his interest in a family farm in the appropriate manner.
The Senator declares that he did declare the farm in two different ways.
it has been alleged that the failure to declare the farm properly could lead the leader of the Greens potentially into “serious contempt of the Senate”.
He has also landed in hot water over the employment of three au-pairs. It has been alleged that he paid the all pairs only $3.75 to help out with the family.
The allegation has come at a time when the Greens leader has tried to position himself as a protector of workers rights. Once again the Greens leader claims that he has done no wrong and that he had paid employees above minimum award standards.
