✍️SIGN: We need a corruption watchdog with teeth!


A shocking string of revelations this week reveal blatant misuse of public money across the political spectrum.

  • 💸 Pauline Hanson used public money to go on a fundraising trip to Perth.1
  • 💸 Deputy PM Michael McCormack sent us the bill for his $4300 RAAF flight to the Melbourne Cup.2
  • 💸 Three Cabinet ministers flew to Sydney with public money to wine and dine with mining and banking donors.3
  • 💸 Shadow Minister Chris Bowen billed tax-payers to be the guest of honour at a Labor fundraiser.4
It's scandal on top of scandal – but for the Coalition, it's just another day at the office.

This week's spotlight on politicians' reckless spending shows they need to be held accountable for their misconduct.

Now, we have a chance to double down on this public embarrassment and put them in a bind – they can support a real bipartisan corruption watchdog, or look like they've got something to hide.

Will you add your name to the call for a genuine federal corruption watchdog?

Morrison Government,

We demand you support a genuine corruption watchdog – one that can hold public hearings, make public findings, and that is properly funded to clean up Parliament.
