STUART ROBERT, Assistant Treasurer bills taxpayers $2000 a month for data at home

For some reason we believed Stuart Robert was no longer a Minister or an MP.  Perhaps these reports explain why we thought that?

From 2016:

 “Sacked Minister Stuart Robert condemned for distasteful Anzac Day tweet”

 “Turnbull MP in new donations scandal as special corruption team investigates”

From 2017:

 “Turnbull government MP Stuart Robert defends $30k donations at corruption hearing: ‘A Labor foothold was not appealing’”

 AND now there’s more!!  We missed this!

“Mr Robert’s trouble with expenses dates back to 2014 when he billed taxpayers $900 to fly to Sydney before going on a private trip to China where he attended the signing of a deal between Nimrod Resources and Chinese officials.”
