Abbott and Pyne's "brave", "decent", "revolutionary" woman comes a cropper after allegedly spending over $1 million of HSU union members' funds

A Fairfax Media investigation has also obtained a leaked NSW police statement that alleges that Ms Jackson knew of serious corruption claims involving Health Services Union bosses Michael Williamson and Craig Thomson for more than a decade before she reported the pair to police in 2011.
The witness, Sydney businesswoman Carron Gilleland, said in her signed police statement that she asked for Ms Jackson's help in 1999 after discovering the possible ''illicit'' use of funds by the pair.
The leaked police statement and other documents also suggest that a private company directed by Ms Jackson and her then husband Jeff Jackson was used both as a secret slush fund and a vehicle for charging the union for ''industrial consulting'' fees in the late 1990s.
