Simply put, members of governmdnt get a budget every year for various things in their electorate, like printing things.

Members of the state and federal liberal party, in NSW I think it was, were giving all those printing jobs to a company owned by a party leader (who is not a member of parliment, and owned no printing equipment)
Said leader was then farming those jobs out to actual printers for about 70% of what he was charging.
Then donating a large part ofthe remaining 30% to the liberal party.

Basically taking money allocated for electoral business and redirecting some of it to the party.

Apparently Melania thinks she's "the most bullied person in the world".

What kind of a spoiled ass sheltered life do you have to live to think that from your position of power and privilege you are the most persecuted person on earth just because as a public figure sometimes people say things about you that you don't like???

Normally I'd agree 100%, but lets face it.

The Saudi Royal family is a rogue element all on it's own.

Ha...well sure, but it was pretty clear he wasn't going for a condemnation of the Saudis as a rogue state but was trying to imply it was just some random gang of murderers and the Saudi leadership had nothing to do with it...

The President of the United States just called the porn star he slept with while his wife was at home with their newborn son "Horseface" on Twitter.
