Sky News host Chris Kenny says Zali Steggall has been exposed for the most “hypocritical political behaviour”.
Ms Steggall’s 2019 campaign received a cheque for a six-figure donation from a coal mining multi-millionaire, which was only declared in small donations and kept anonymous.
“Donate your coal money to a climate independent, and suddenly it’s clean … This is coal-fired conceit,” Mr Kenny said.
“Steggall campaigns on integrity and transparency but has kept quiet on this information until it was revealed in the media.
“And now she attacks those who revealed it, and she assumes the preferred position of any lefty caught out on anything, victimhood.”
