I have trouble believing the Greens Senator Scott Ludlum when he says he never knew he also had New Zealand citizenship – forcing him to resign from the Senate – until a barrister snooping around informed him this week.
Ludlum’s knowledge or lack thereof is something the public is entitled to have tested in a court.
Can you imagine if somebody falsely claimed Centerlink benefits for a decade that the government would not enforce – on pains of imprisonment – the repayment of the monies owed?
This whole affair stinks to high heaven and Ludlum should be investigated for false representation.
How did he NOT know? Has he used his passport since he was elected?
