Fronting media for the first time since her travel entitlement scandal surfaced, Health Minister Sussan Ley read a pre-prepared apology in front of media today, stopping midway to secure a beautifully appointed 3-bedroom property in inner Canberra.
An emotional Mrs Ley told journalists it was an ‘error of judgment’ to make the claim.
“I have spoken to the Prime Minister and he agrees that this claim does not meet the high standards … sorry, one moment … $680,000? $660,000 is my final offer. $670,000? We have a deal. Sold … and so I have agreed to pay the funds for that travel back”.
Mrs Ley hit the headlines on Friday when it was revealed she spontaneously bought a Gold Coast investment property on a taxpayer funded trip. She has bought a further 19 Gold Coast properties since then.
