HSU secretary has tried to justify using union members’ money to support campaigns of allies.

Health Services Union ­national secretary Kathy Jackson has tried to justify using union members’ money for a slush fund to support election campaigns of factional allies, and claimed she discussed one such campaign with Bill Shorten.

She claims the Labor leader, when he was a boss of the Australian Workers Union, and Labor frontbencher Stephen Conroy, had talked about the matter at a dinner party at Mr Shorten’s house about nine years ago.
