Will a bullying MP doom Labor in byelections

Several by-elections in Australia this weekend, and the major topic seems to be Labor MP Emma Husar.

Former staff (she went through 20 in two years) have alleged:

  • bullying
  • harrassment
  • verbal abuse including calling them f***wits and c**ts
  • having to walk her dog and pick up its poos
  • having to babysit her kids
  • one staffer lives with her and does household and nanny chores
  • she used government funded cars to meet with her divorce lawyer
  • spent parliamentary funds on toilet paper for her home

The defence of her by Bill Shorten has been terrible – basically that she is a solo mum so you need to be sympathetic.
