Build it and they will pay

During the Sports Rort investigations it was discovered that a soccer club in Scott Morrison’s electorate was given $50,000 for a building that had already been built !!!

Guidelines for the sports grants program clearly state that projects that had commenced works were ineligible. So why did this club get the money?

Well, emails between the PM and Bridget McKenzie say that the club initially missed out on the first two rounds of funding under the Community Sport Infrastructure grant program but was subsequently funded in round three. “During the intervening period, the club has fund-raised and the project is almost completed.”

Sound dodgy to you?
