This table identifies political misconduct over the past seven years. Few have been investigated, even fewer properly investigated. None have been prosecuted. Q.E.D, stands for Quod Erat Demonstrandum, or “so it has been demonstrated”. This compilation of corruption allegations is, in itself, hard proof that Australia needs a federal corruption commission to hold government to account.
