‘Character, integrity, credibility’: Treasurer’s attack on Labor leader’s undisclosed donations

The NSW Treasurer says Michael Daley’s failure to disclose developer donations should remind voters of Labor’s corrupt past.

Dominic Perrottet is questioning the character of the state Opposition Leader after The Daily Telegraph revealed he failed to report donations from three developers during his time as a Randwick Councillor.

It’s claimed the Australian Labor Party received more than $600,000 in contributions from Argos Investments, Randwick Labor Club and Meck Investments and Affiliates while Mr Daley was assessing their development applications.

He also refused to support attempts to bring in transparency measures surrounding donors and developers in the council.

Mr Daley denies any allegations he acted improperly.

Ahead of next month’s election, Treasurer Perrottet tells Ray Hadley it’s a reminder of Labor’s checkered history.

“We know what’s happened in the past with the Labor party, with the corruption in the past.

“The issues today I think are concerning and I think Michael Daley needs to answer some questions and I don’t think he adequately has.

“It goes to character, it goes to integrity, and it goes to credibility.”
