The $150 million program, meant to improve female sporting facilities, even more heavily skewed towards Coalition-held marginal seats than the controversial sports grants program it was meant to complement.

The Coalition won each of these highly contested seats except Corangamite, which was one of just two Coalition-held seat to be snatched by Labor.

"No other council in Australia has received such substantial government funding to construct an aquatic facility," she said. "We now know that there is yet another slush fund program used by the Government to pork-barrel seats, and this one is even bigger," he said. "My concern is that election-funding announcements are bypassing the need for evidence-based decision-making in regards to community sport facilities," he said.The $150 million fund, which sets aside $20 million in 2019-20 expanding to $50 million in 2022-23, was budgeted under the infrastructure portfolio.

Govt defends sport rort saga by hitting back at 'hypocritical' Labor | Sky News AustraliaLabor has used Senate Question Time to further prosecute the government over the controversial sports grants programme and the auditor-general’s finding that the Coalition splashed cash in marginal seats. \n\nWhen asked about the controversy, both Senate leader Mathias Cormann and Sports Minister Richard Colbeck used the ‘reverse pork-barrelling’ defence that Bridget McKenzie lifted funding in Labor electorates. \n\nMinister Cormann claimed Labor should be “grateful” for the intervention and be proud of the programme. \n\nBoth Mr Cormann and Minister Colbeck hit back at Labor, and claimed their line of questioning was hypocritical, considering a 2010 auditor-general report which found an aspect of Labor’s fiscal stimulus program favoured Labor-held seats. \n Even when caught these LIARS can’t admit it. RORT after RORT and a slap on the wrist after an investigation by Liberal Staffers clears them FFS ScottyFromMarketting CrimeMinister This Liberal Government is horrible. KICK THIS MOB OUT 🤦🏻‍♂️
