Jim Molan refers allegations about Michael Daley to Home Affairs

Liberal senator Jim Molan has contacted the Department of Home Affairs after claims of misconduct by Michael Daley were brought to his attention. 

Mr Daley is in a tight race to become premier of NSW at Saturday’s election but worked as a customs officer for 13 years before entering politics.

Senator Molan has contacted Home Affairs about a past investigation into Mr Daley’s apparent unauthorised use of a motor vehicle.

Mr Molan tells Chris Smith a Senate Estimates committee will come up with an answer, but it won’t be until after the state election.

“I’ve been given a whole bunch of information from members of the public, and they’re all allegations in relation to Michael Daley’s character.

“It’s alleged that he has told untruths and I was very disappointed in that.

“These are all allegations, but I have a responsibility to act on them, and I think I’ve acted on them responsibly.”
