It has come to our attention that Strategic Political Counsel Pty Ltd has made substantial donations to One Nation in Queensland, totalling $30,000 since November. They have made the single biggest contribution to One Nation that is currently listed in the Queensland Government’s disclosures website.
Strange, but not super unusual you might think – but it gets weird in that this company is run by a man named Michael Kauter. Kauter was previously a director for a National Party campaign, a man whose company has openly said if you want the inside track to talk to Barnaby Joyce (Deputy PM at the time) that you are best off talking to them.
To be blunt, he is a National party stooge, albeit seemingly quiet wealthy from his hard labours of lobbying. Given that, it seems strange to be donating money to his opposition in Queensland. Our insider information tells us that he hasn’t had a major falling out with his National party bed buddies, and has instead taken on the role of professional slime ball and is funnelling money for the Nats into One Nation.
Given recent news it seems only logical to guess that these funds are being used to provide a follow on donation/loan to the NSW State Branch, letting them get around the electoral disclosure laws in NSW and obfuscating the Nationals support for One Nation.
Dodgy much? Not of course to imply this is illegal, indeed as far as we can tell it is legal (but ethically dubious at best).
It shows just how scared the Nationals are of the SFFP and that they are running secret support campaigns for the extraordinarily anti-gun One Nation – a One Nation featuring such profound gun hating career gits as Mark Latham.
If you needed yet another reason to vote against the professional rot and corruption that is the Nationals (and now One Nation), look no further.
