Every day that Labor defends John Setka is another day their values are diminished

Today in Question Time, Minister Jill Hennessy was left exposed as a hypocrite as she defended CFMMEU boss John Setka who will plead guilty to charges of harassing a woman.

It’s the same Minister who immediately demanded former Labor candidate John Anderson resign from a government board when he was outed for harassing others.


It’s also the same Minister who recently said: “Sadly it is common for family violence perpetrators to target women in the workplace, creating a health and safety risk.”


But since learning that John Setka will plead guilty to charges of harassing a woman and breaching a court order, Jill Hennessy has had nothing to say about removing the CFMMEU boss from all government boards.


There is nothing sadder in politics than when a Minister sells out their principles for political power.
