The SMH reports:
Rogue Greens senator Lee Rhiannon could soon be expelled from the party after all nine of her federal colleagues made a formal complaint about her conduct during recent school funding negotiations.
But Senator Rhiannon’s hardline factional supporters have hit back at party leader Richard Di Natale and his allies, calling on them to retract the complaint and hinting at retaliation if it goes any further.
Rhiannon is from the communist faction within the Greens and is very unpopular with her peers. But she has a lot of grassroots support so if they expel her there will be repercussions.
