Show me the money: The $30,000 question facing Labor MP Emma Husar
Further questions are being asked of Labor’s Emma Husar after the embattled MP was accused of bullying her staff.
In 2009, Ms Husar launched a campaign, raising $30,000 to access a companion dog for her autistic son.
It was quite a big deal in the community with major fundraisers led by organisations including Penrith Valley Rotary.
The member for Lindsay and her family received a dog from a Victorian organisation but it was returned days later, with Ms Husar saying the pet wasn’t compatible.
When asked where the $30,000 worth of fundraising money went, she says it was given to charity but the receipts are yet to surface.
“We’ve asked her for the receipts and the documents that prove the $30,000 went to charity,” Ray says.
“I’m not suggesting it didn’t, but what we need, in light of revelations that we’ve gone through recently, is proof that money went to charity.
“That’s all we’re asking for, proof from Emma Husar.”
The questions are just the latest embarrassment for Ms Husar after allegations she has been intimidating staff and directing them to clean up after the family dog and care for her children.
Ray Hadley also revealed Ms Husar had been spreading lies about an interaction she claimed to have with him at a charity function.
Ms Husar told a blind date that Ray ordered her to hold his Blackberry while he was MC… Ray has never owned a Blackberry and would never give it to her if he did.

Ms Husar’s office has since issued a statement through Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s staff.
“This issue has been discussed with Ray previously and evidence given to him.
“The money was given to Righteous Pups Australia.”
Ray denies this, saying he has never received any evidence that a donation was made by Ms Husar to any organisation.
“I’m asking for a receipt.
“I need to see, from Emma Husar, where the money went.”
