Dastyari discovers the real cost
LABOR powerbroker and senator Sam Dastyari admitted yesterday he was wrong when he "let” a company with links to the Chinese Government pay a $1670.82 bill incurred by his office.
Senator Dastyari (left) made his statement after Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi challenged him to explain the payment on the ABC's 7.30 program the night before.
The New South Wales Labor senator told the Senate yesterday morning "on reflection” he should have paid the bill himself.
"I take full responsibility and have donated that amount to charity,” Senator Dastyari said.
