Michaelia Cash snubs 2GB reporter, hides behind whiteboard

Senator Michaelia Cash has resorted to hiding behind a whiteboard while walking into Senate Estimates.

She snubbed 2GB Federal Political Report Eliza Edwards who was looking for an explanation for her heated exchanged yesterday.

Yesterday, the Minister threatened to divulge rumours about women working for Labor leader Bill Shorten.

She has withdrawn her comments but has refused to apologise.

Michaelia Cash’s office responded to Ben Fordham to confirm they had nothing to do with the whiteboard stunt.

“We had nothing to do with it.

“Security decided to do it.

“You can’t film in the mural hall without permission and some of the cameras were in areas they shouldn’t have been.”

Ben Fordham also speaks with 2GB Political Editor Michael Pachi.

“Reporters tried to get Michaelia Cash to stop, it was mainly 2GB’s Eliza Edwards, and explain her reason for the heated exchange.

“As Eliza was walking to get to Michaelia Cash, the security guard starting pulling a whiteboard in front of her.”
