GetUp exposed over breathtaking hypocrisy on foreign donations

Despite its regular calls for a ban on foreign donations, GetUp has been today exposed for taking a half a million dollar donation with foreign links just days before the new foreign donations framework comes into effect.

The revelations in The Australian today follow revelations earlier this year that it accepted $106,000 in the last financial year.

“GetUp has once again exposed itself as nothing more than a constant stream of extreme-left wing hypocrisy – once again railing against foreign donations and even corporate donations while secretly taking a half-a-million donation from the questionable Sunrise Project,” Senator Abetz said.

“This latest round of hypocrisy is unsurprising given GetUp’s form on taking foreign donations, including from organisations linked to George Soros.”

“GetUp constantly claim to have some higher moral authority then everyone else yet constantly breach their own stated missions and ethics.”

“It’s high time that GetUp practices what it preaches,” Senator Abetz concluded.
