    This is considered OK and HIGHLY ETHICAL by his Liberal mates as it is OK to have done that before he became a Liberal Senator as he did not spend any of this income on the girls of the night and he did not belong to a Union where member of UNIONS who pay union fees as they only pay tax so the good Senator was well paid before he became a Senator.
