If our federal politicians have nothing to hide then they have nothing to fear from an independent force going after corruption and cleaning up politics on both sides of the aisle.

Every state in Australia already has an anti-corruption watchdog and they have proved their worth time and time again in exposing corruption and wrong-doing.4 A federal anti-corruption watchdog with teeth – with broad investigative powers, conducting public hearings – would transform our federal politics. Polling shows more than 80 per cent of Australians want a federal corruption watchdog.5

But change doesn't happen because of polls — it happens because so many people demand it that our leaders can't ignore it any longer. Sign the petition for a federal anti-corruption watchdog to keep our politicians honest.
