Independent Senator for Tasmania, Jacqui Lambie has referred the legal threat by the Palmer United Party to sue her for $2M, to the Clerk of the Senate and her legal advisors.
“This legal threat, just like the recent death threat allegedly from ISIS and Sharia Law supporters - is just another distraction. And I make this promise to the people of Tasmania – this will just make me work harder to find solutions for their important problems.” said Senator.
“I won’t forget that it’s the youth unemployment crisis, job security for the average worker, skyrocketing cost of living for families and the need to protect the pensions of our seniors and veterans which are the main issues in Australian politics. Everything else is just a sideshow and a distraction. I will remain focused on the things that matter to the battlers.” said Senator Lambie.
“The timing of this event is curious. It comes one day after the Australian Electoral Commission publically asked for any objections to the registration of JLN as an official party - and on April Fools Day.
