Labor MP Emma Husar defends taxpayer-funded trip to Queensland and Bruno Mars gig

SIMPLY EMMA – YOUR A THIEF and once again you low life B**CH, you have ripped off the Australian public… and guess what ??? Nothing will happen !!

EMBATTLED Labor MP Emma Husar has defended a taxpayer-funded trip to Emma HUSAR - THIEFQueensland, during which she saw a Bruno Mars concert.

Ms Husar, who is under investigation over allegations of staff bullying and misuse of entitlements, attended the concert in Brisbane on March 14 after attending a committee hearing in Cairns that day.

“Of course no work expenses were used to attend a concert. Any assertion otherwise is preposterous,” a spokesman for the western Sydney MP said on Wednesday.

“The concert tickets were a birthday gift from a friend.”

Ms Husar flew into Brisbane from Cairns, claiming $114 for a government-funded Comcar from the airport to her hotel.

Taxpayers were also charged for her hotel room, which she shared with a friend.

Ms Husar attended meetings with a homelessness service and a domestic violence call centre in Brisbane the following day.

Deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek said she had been told the reports were inaccurate.

“It is absolutely vital that every single dollar of taxpayer funding is used appropriately, there is no question of that,” Ms Plibersek told Sky News.

“If there are any issues like this to investigate they should be looked at properly. Every single dollar of taxpayer funding should be used appropriately.”
